What Procedure Will Make my Nose Look Better?

Procedure to improve appearance of nose

The rhinoplasty procedure for a primary rhinoplasty can be performed as a closed rhinoplasty.  The techniques for rhinoplasty involve removal of the hump, narrowing of the nasal bones, narrowing a wide tip, refining it, and feminizing the tip.  In addition, release of the depressor septi muscle can prevent the tip from dropping upon animation or smiling.  A cast will be applied across the bridge of the nose and is left intact for a week.  All incisions are placed inside the nose and there is no packing.

i would perform an open rhinoplasty and narrow the tip, refine the tip, rotate the tip upwards a bit, make your nose shorter in length and deproject the nose as well. i would also break the nasal bones to make them narrower after shaving down some of your hump on profile. it appears that you have thick nasal skin which could limit your overall result somewhat but improvements can be made. of course, we also need to get your medical history and examine the inside of your nose prior to making a final decision and that is best done with an on site consultation.

The short answer to your question is a rhinoplasty.  There is a lot of bulkiness to your tip and a plunging tip as well.  I would likely recommend, pending a physical exam, an open rhinoplsty with tip reconfiguration and infracturing of the nasal bones.

All the best,

The bridge is wide and the tip is asymmetric with a cleft between the 2 tip cartilages. The facial bones are also asymmetric, right vs. left (cheeks, around the eyes and jawbones). The nasal issues could be addressed with an infracture of the nasal bones at the bridge and suture realignment of the tip cartilages. However given the general overall asymmetry you will never be symmetric right vs. left. Other issues may be present that cannot be seen in the few views photographed.
