Is it possible to lower the tip of the nose without making it longer? It seems that extending it would naturally do that, thus making the nose even larger than it is.... I would like to get my nose dropped without making it larger.

Lowering the Tip
Absolutely the tip can be lowered without making your nose larger. There is a very fine balance between what you are asking to have done. It would be prudent to seek out someone that does a great deal rhinoplasty surgery. You need to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon who will give you your options and alternatives.

Lowering the Nasal Tip Without Making it Longer
The position and appearance of the nose is a balance of many factors. A great rhinoplasty surgeon knows how to manipulate these factors to accomplish things like lowering the nasal tip without making it longer. When you seek a consultation, avoid anyone that tells you that this is not possible.
