My nose is a bit crooked and very boxy at the tip. I am interested in a bit of improvement to the symmetry and narrowing of the tip for a natural look. I have also have a high bridge (seen best from profile view). I am interested in a closed procedure because of the quicker recovery time. Any recommendations on what I need done and if a closed rhinoplasty will accomplish this? Thank you!

Closed vs Open Rhinoplasty
Do not pick the technique, pick the surgeon. All experienced surgeons have their own preferences - you can get an excellent result with either approach. Consult will surgeons who show natural results in noses like yours.
Crooked nose, boxy tip
I can straighten a nose using a closed approach provided there is not tissue loss. The cause of the Boxy tip may need an open approach. Is there a wide interdomal distance or is there wide arching between the medial and lateral crus on each side? For preciseness an open approach is sometimes the best apporoach.
Closed rhinoplasty for a bulbus tip
A bulbous tip can be repaired through closed rhinoplasty techniques which is what we've been doing for the last 20+ years. Tip suturing techniques, spreader grafts, osteotomies and hump reduction can all be performed through closed rhinoplasty. The link below is to our closed rhinoplasty photo gallery
