This is a 29 year old anesthetist from Pittsburgh. She was unhappy with the moderate bump on the dorsum of her nose and also felt her nasal tip was somewhat bulbous. She had considered a rhinoplasty for many years. Because of her work as an anesthetist she had many opportunities to observe different plastic surgeons at work! This lateral view of the surgical result shows a nicely reduced nasal dorsum. Note that the nose was a little over-projected (the nasal tip is a little too far away from the face) in the pre-operative picture and this has been corrected in the post-operative picture. The nose has a more feminine profile and interacts with the rest of her face in a more graceful way.
