What can I do about my nostrils and nose tip? (Photo)

Revision rhinoplasty can help
it appears that your tip is droopy with what we would call a hanging columella. The nostrils also arch upwards which we refer to as alar retraction. A revision rhinoplasty where the tip is lifted and the nostril retraction improved would likely give your nose better balance. It would be important to have a full assessment by a rhinoplasty specialist to address these concerns.

A revision rhinoplasty is more difficult than a primary rhinoplasty, so a full set of photographs are required to make a determination. It is important to choose a surgeon based on extensive experience, and having realistic patient expectations. The tip of the nose is centered. The nostrils are only very asymmetrical. A full set of photographs is required to make a determination about performing any surgery, since the nose is a 3-dimensional structure. It is very difficult to give comments about a surgical procedure when only a one dimensional photograph has been presented.
