Considering Rhinoplasty for Crooked Nose /Droopy Tip - Please Help! - California, CA

I have consulted with 3 Plastic Surgeons in the past regarding a nose job, but never actually went through with it. Over the past couple of years I have become increasingly unhappy with the size and shape of my nose. I feel like my nose takes over my face and distracts from my eyes. My nose is slightly crooked, and the tip is too heavy for my face. I also feel like my breathing could be improved as well. I would like my nose to be smaller, tip reduced and lifted, less projection, and straightened. I am just really nervous because the face is a scary thing to mess with. Would like any feedback. thanks!

Need a Septoplasty / "Finesse" Rhinoplasty to Fix Crooked Nose.

I just consulted with a great surgeon in Orange County, and I am excited because I really like him, but now I am just going through the thinking process / financials / etc.

He said my nose is definitely very crooked, the tip is too bulbous, and my nasal bridge is too thin / rigid / irregular. He said that my septum is deviated as well and this is causing my nose to look like it has a bump (from the right side view).

From the left side view my nose looks straight.

I really want to do this.

Really want to straighten my crooked nose and refine/lift tip. Any input appreciated!

Still in the process of meeting doctors and discussing options. Not rushing the process.

Desire a finesse rhinoplasty to straighten my crooked nose, fix septum, and reduce tip.

Today I got before and after side view photos from the doctor. I like what he gave me! Gotta think it through...

Yeah it's a big decision. I went through that for years and just when I got over it and accepted my nose and even began to like it, my mum offered to pay. It's one of those things I wouldn't have paid for myself but now its happened I would encourage anyone to spend on it. The thought that I wouldn't have this nose if mum hadn't offered makes me sad. From someone who wasn't too sure about the decision to get one (even half liked my nose) and was never really self conscious.... it's been one of the best things I've done for myself.

Oo I love it! It really suits your face, and looks so natural. I'm not a fan of the super sloped look. I prefer a straighter nose like the one in your morph is just my taste ;P I'll try to post my morphs soon. My doc claims he can do it, only time will tell ! hehehe

the straight nose looks good too, I just think the slope would be more balanced...not like barbie :):)

looks great!! i would go for more sloped like Alexis Bledel (like how your forehead curves, but in the opp direction) and it would make your morph even more beautiful!! your profile looks similar to hers :)

Lucky girl that you live in California! You're only a drive away from quite a few reputable surgeons. Your nose isn't big at all, but if you would like to improve it then I think what you desire is common and straightforward. The proposed "after" nose suits your profile well. You would carry the slope look well. In picking a PS, be sure not only can they provide a lot of before/after pictures of past patients but see if many of the "before" noses look like your nose. Good luck!!

Hey! I hope you find your dream surgeon! It's really tough, and I feel like no matter what you will always second guess yourself. You just sort of have to put your trust in the surgeon that seems most certain and comfortable in his work, who feels confident and shares your vision. It is sort of freaky though. >.< One surgeon wouldn't stop talking about how crooked my nose was and really seemed nervous as hell about it. It freaked me out. Anyway, I've heard a lot of great things about the surgeons out West. Especially for ethnic rhinoplasty. You are going to look even more beautiful, especially because your nose isn't big to start with, just a little crooked and needs a little tip support. It's going to look AMAZING! I wish you the best, and I'll keep checking for your updates :)

Thank you!! I just posted what the surgeon gave me as an "after" side view! Check it out! I think it looks awesome!

check out Dr. Srour!! I just did my nose with him and I LOVED it from the second the cast came off!! It's swollen, but it's still prettier and more feminine than my old nose! Plus, he has a Groupon deal for a $3,000 primary rhinoplasty for Doheny Sunset Surgery Center...I got a great deal on a secondary rhino with him and really couldn't be happier. I came all the way from Chicago to see him and it was worth every penny!! My first revision went like crap, but Dr. Srour totally made it so I'll never need another one!!

for sure :) good luck!! PS it's actually really great to be awake for it because you know what the surgeon did and exactly what to expect when your cast comes off. It's such a relief compared to general anesthesia, which I've tried twice lol.

I had a very similar nose to you. The tip dropped even more so when I smiled. Out of all the parts of my procedure I feel I got the most be got from the tip lift and refinement. I now have a much 'cuter' feminine nose. I know another girl who had a less invasive finesse procedure with no tip lift and she is now going to have that corrected. Try to see if you can access the software which can give you an indication of the final look. Good luck!

Thank you!! One of the doctors I consulted with is printing photos of what he would do to my nose and I'm going to go look at them tomorrow!!! ;)

Yes, you do have a sexy profile. Try to find a doctor whose work doesn't change the person's look too much, it would be pity! You are beautiful!
  • Reply
Yes that is my exact goal. The last doctor I met with was great- he said that it would be a "finesse rhinoplasty", meaning it would not be a big change. Thank u!

I actually think you have a beautiful profile. All you really need to do is straighten the bridge in my opinion. You're beautiful!
