Am I a Good Candidate for Rhinoplasty?

 Aesthetically speaking, from the photos provided, there is a dorsal hump and the tip is a bit wide.  All in all, it's not a bad nose and unless it's very large (no profile view included), there's no reason for this nose to be a source of insecurity and I have done many, many Rhinoplasties over the past 25 years.

 Have few consultations with experienced Rhinoplasty Surgeons that understand and follow the proper aesthetics of facial beauty for the creation of a naturally more attractive nose and face.

I think that you may be a good candidate for a rhinoplasty.  It is best to be properly evaluated in person.  Good luck.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Rhinoplasty?

Reviewing the pictures you submitted I think your nose can be improved. However, before I say that you are a good candidate I suggest that you consult with a rhinoplasty specialist about the results so you can determine if you will be satisfied - the ultimate criteria for being a good candidate.

         The dorsal hump is subtle but can be easily remedied with a closed rhinoplasty.  As far as the tip is concerned, you do not have a bad tip, and I would have to examine you and determine your goals for the surgery to give you a better idea of what is possible.  Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs HUNDREDS of rhinoplasties each year.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA

Big concern and small nose deformity is not a good combination.


You need to get to the bottom of what is bothering you, because your nose is not that bad at all.  Of course, it can be made better, but I am not sure your insecurity will go away.
