Thoughts/Opinions on African American Rhinoplasty + Top Lip Augmentation - Philadelphia, PA

So, basically, I've been toying with the idea of a nose job for a while...while the top lip filler seems more plausible and cheaper, I wanted some opinions on my natural nose and my goal nose.

From the pics, you can see I already have a defined bridge, I just want a less bulbous/more refined and defined tip and maybe slightly less width. I just hate how my nose starts out thin and gradually gets more bulbous, like a skinny, long triangle shape :p ..

Also you can see my top lip disappears when I smile. I want those full plump lips (much like my bottom lip), so how many cc's do you guys think I'll need? TIA!

Thanks for starting your story here on RealSelf! I like your nose now, too! If you do go forth with this though, make sure to find a surgeon who is very experienced in African American noses. From what I've heard it's a pretty different skill set than working on caucasian noses. I would recommend that you schedule at least three consultations with board certified plastic surgeons who have done a lot of AA noses and you can also ask about their recommendations for your upper lip. I had one syringe put in both lips, 70% on top and 30% of it on the bottom and it was a pretty significant difference. You can kind of keep checking as you go and decide if you want to go fuller.

Please keep us posted!

I think your nose looks great how it is! If I had your nose I'd be happier.
