Thank you for your question about nose surgery.

  • Yes, your nose can be changed to look more like this model's nose,
  • rhinoplasty (nose surgery) should narrow and define your nose, especially the bone, tip and nostril width,
  • computer imaging may help you visualize your result,
  • Consult an experienced Board Certified Plastic or ENT surgeon for a full examination and careful planning of your surgery to achieve your goal.
  • Hope this helps. Best wishes.

Realistic Expectations with Rhinoplasty

Your nose will not exactly look like the example you presented because your skin is thicker, typical of African-American ladies. However you can make your nose smaller and better defined with a natural result if you select a surgeon experienced in African-American rhinoplasty

 The two noses presented  have completely different skin, cartilage, and bone. It is impossible to give someone a  completely different nose.Your rhinoplasty surgeon  has to modify the existing cartilage and bone to affect the change. Thick sebaceous skin is a limiting factor in African American noses. It is best to perform computer imaging on your nose to delineate the exact changes   that you would like to make. Virtual imaging is available on our website for you to try
