Nose Job Suggestions? (photo)

I am very unhappy with my nose. I don't like how long and skinny it is or the bump on it. I also don't like how much it sticks out from the face, if that makes any sense. I feel like it's making my whole face look weird since it doesn't fit in at all. The problem is I don't really know what could be done to improve it... I would really appreciate it if anyone could give me some suggestions and maybe show an example of how my nose could look.

Rhinoplasty involves shaving the bump down, de-projecting the overall tip of the nose, and possibly narrowing the sidewall on the tip to make sure the nose comes into balance.  A large hump removal usually involves having to narrow the sidewalls.  De-projecting the nose will help give less prominence to the overall nose.  Consideration for a chin implant to bring the chin forward would give facial balance to de-project the nasal tip as well.  At our web site, patients can perform computer imaging with their own uploaded pictures.

From the limited number of photos you submitted it is difficult to give you definitive rhinoplasty suggestions.  However, it appears you would benefit from a reduction type of rhinoplasty in which the dorsal hump and nasal tip are reduced in size and projection.  I would suggest you get a consultation from a board certified plastic surgeon and ask to see patients similar to yourself who have had a rhinoplasty.  If you believe you would be happy if you were one of those patients, it wouold go a long way in determining if you are a good candidate for the procedure.  Best wishes.

The hump can be removed and the projection can be reduced so your nose is proportional to the rest of your facial features. I'm sorry, but I cannot comment on the width of your nose because you only submitted pictures of your profile. Examples of nose like yours can be seen on my website.
