Hello, my name is Don, I am 23 years old and I live in Holland. For my nose I'd really like to have a more narrow and defined nose. One doctor in Manila, Philipines, advided me this: "to augment the bridge with an implant, infracture the nasal bones and do alarplasty or trimming of the sides". It sounds really good to me. Tho I'd really like to have a second opinion. What do you think?

Nasal narrowing, implant
Yes, Don, you will need nasal bone fractures to narrow the boney pyramid. From the side view, you have a cartilaginous bump that needs to be taken down before an implant is inserted. How narrow do you want your nose. maybe an implant is unnecesarry.

Ask a doctor
You would benefit from dorsal augmentation and maneuvers to revive your tip such as grafting. I am not convinced you need osteotomies or alar reduction.
