Asian Revision Rhinoplasty: can the nose tip be more defined (and not narrowed) to distinguish the nostrils? (photo)

Asian Rhinoplasty - Tip Refinement
Also, while nostril asymmetry is the most difficult area of asymmetry to correct, in most cases it can be improved during rhinoplasty. While perfect symmetry is not attainable, improved symmetry usually is.
During an in-person consultation with an Asian rhinoplasty specialist computer-morphing can be performed to give you a better sense of what these changes will have on your appearance. Obtaining your previous operative note and consulting with a rhinoplasty specialist would be helpful.
Revision, some advices:
Thank you very much for sharing your concerns about your Rhinoplasty with us.
After having analyzed all the info and photos provided to us, i recommend to perform a Secondary Rhinoplasty (not a tip revision) this means (basically) treat the nasal bones and the nasal cartilages.
Therefore i would perform a narrowing of the nasal base (nose osteotomy) and alar and triangular cartilage shaping.
Dr. Emmanuel Mallol Cotes.-
Thank you for your question. A rhinoplasty that addresses the tip and nostrils is - by definition - less involved than a rhinoplasty that addresses function and a complete contouring of the nose. Your pictures are very helpful, but to complete a diagnosis an in-person examination is necessary. I suggest that you move forward and consult with a board certified facial plastic surgeon.
