It appears your surgeon is evaluating your entire nose and addressing multiple aspects which is a good sign. Make sure you see before and after pictures of noses similar to yours. Above all find someone who you trust and you feel understands your concerns. Good luck. vargasfaceandskin
It is much more important what your surgeon CAN do, as opposed to what he wants to do. Yes it sounds reasonable, but there is no guarantee that he can deliver. Look at his work, and do your research. Also, hopefully you are able to trust your surgeon enough not to question his plan on the internet. If you don't trust him, move on to somebody who you can trust.
Good luck. It i shard to say what the appropriate treatment plan for you would be unless an exam is performed and your concerns are discussed. Everyone can say 2mms here or 2mms there, but it ultimately comes down to your aesthetic eye as a surgeon.
