Best to obtain ONLY IN PERSON opinions from boarded surgeons in your area for rhinoplasty styles....
Have a question?
Ask a doctor
What would best compliment my face. Should my nose have a curve or be straight from the side profile?
A chin implant and some bridge reduction may be appropriate, but a profile view is necessary to make that determination.

Considering a rhinoplasty
Before you decide to have a rhinoplasty you should have some idea of what features of your nose bother you and what features you would like to correct. I see no outstanding nasal deformity in your photos other that a slightly large nasal tip.
Rhinoplasty, septoplasty chin implant candidate
A septoplasty is performed for medical necessity when there is blockage of air flow through the back of the nose. Obstructing cartilage and bone posterior in the portion of the nose is removed to improve airflow dynamics.
A rhinoplasty procedure would involve refining the nasal tip cartilages, the bridge and removing any bump in straightening the nasal bones. A rhinoplasty and septoplasty can be performed the same time, but they are two separate procedures.
The photographs also demonstrate a weak chin profile, which makes the appearance of the nose overly projecting. Consider placement of a chin implant to help balance your facial features.
Video imaging is a good way to define patient's expectations of rhinoplasty.
Cosmetic surgery is performed to make the patient feel better about themselves. Video imaging is a good way to figure out specifically What an individual wants.
Your questions should be directed at YOU!. Change for the sake of change, or for the sake of others is fraught with danger. Unless and until YOU know what it is YOU would like have changed and "into" what, you should not seek consultation. Especially in an area like nose surgery. Personal desire is king.
