Need a Second Opinion Before Rhinoplasty? (photo)
Hi, I recently got a consultation. The doctor showed me a simulation of the end result, noting that the tip wouldn't be as pointed. My issue with this end result is that it looks abnormal, as you can probably tell. The end of the nostril (opposite the tip of the nose) still looks as large as before while everything else is reduced. The doctor said that he can't do anything about that because I have thick skin. Is this true? Is it impossible to horizontally flatten the nostril/reduce the size?
