Radix reduction? Could this happen the way I want? (photo)
I'm a 20 years old man and my nose looks like it starts from the forehead. Is there a way to change this and make it look like the second picture I posted? My nose seem to have a curve but still it start from forehead. Is there a way to change this or it has to do with the forehead too?

The radix can only be reduced with a rhinoplasty. This can be done closed without any visible scar.
Find a board certified plastic surgeon 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.

The radix reduction you illustrated can be achieved with a surgical rhinoplasty, but not a nonsurgical rhinoplasty. Nonsurgical rhinoplasty can add volume and height to your nose, but can not take it away.
