Hi, I am a 20 year old female and a student, I don't have a lot of money obviously, but have been so unhappy with my nose my whole life. As you can see, my nose bridge starts small then kind of spreads into the rest of my face..the bridge isn't very defined, and I have a small bulbous tip. Overall I'd like my nose to appear thinner and more defined. What are my options and what would you say I need done? Would a dermal filler help enough?Thanks!

Bulbous tip rhinoplasty
The bulbous tip is addressed with a combination of tip cartilage suturing techniques and cartilage removal. Osteotomies are performed the to narrow the bridge line. Cartilage harvested from the inside of the nose can be grafted along the top of the bridge line to give a higher bridge. Virtual imaging is available on our website for you to try

Bulbous Tip Correction with Nonsurgical Nose Job
In general, the bulbous tip is better corrected with formal rhinoplasty. Filler works in some cases of irregularity, depressions, and for camouflage. Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA
- If you want a temporary fix, a non-surgical rhinoplasty can raise the bridge slightly and make it look thinner on frontal view
- The bulbous tip may look a little more defined, but it will not be as defined unless you do a surgical rhinoplasty
