Do I Need a Nosejob?


Dear Kathrine,

Thank you for your question and photos.  NEED is a strong word.  I think you can certainly benefit from a rhinoplasty decreasing its overall shape, refining the tip, and rotating the tip up slightly.  In rhinoplasty, it is millimeters that count.  The following link is an example of a similar nose.

Best wishes,

     You do not need a rhinoplasty, but if you wanted some subtle improvements to refine the nose and make it more equal from the left and right sides rhinoplasty could be considered.  Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of rhinoplasties and rhinoplasty revisions each year.  Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA
