How to reduce nose size without surgery.


Thank you for your question, evaluating from your photo you need surgery Rhinoplasty non surgical will not work for you. 

There are different kinds of rhinoplasty operations however we can divide them as the one that requires bone excision and the one that does not need bone excision. The main fact that we classify the rhinoplasty operations like that is that the results and postoperative period is associated closely with this fact. In the operations like “nasal tip correction”, “simple rhinoplasty” there is no need for a bone excision however these minor operations cannot be beneficial for everyone. The operation type is need to be determined by the surgeon according to needs of the patient. In these minor operations the rhinoplasty is performed with closed method. The bone and the cartilage tissues are not involved in the surgery directly. Small nasal bumps can be removed in these operations.

In the operation that needs the bone and cartilage tissues to be involved; open approach is used. In the procedures with open approach, the size, shape and functionality of the nose can be improved. The big nasal bumps can be removed and septal deviations can be corrected providing a better nasal airway.

Reducing the size of your nose with rhinoplasty

Non surgical procedures such as fillers like Radiesse are very helpful to improve the shape and contour of your nose. The downside to this is that it may make your nose appear longer. Unfortunately, fillers like Radiesse will only add size to the nose, not reduce size, and fillers cannot do very much to correct crookedness. Based on your photographs, you will probably require a surgical rhinoplasty to correct the shape of your nose. A consultation with a plastic surgeon is necessary before making any definitive recommendations.

Reducing the size of the nose

Unfortunately, after reviewing your photo, your only option would be a traditional rhinoplasty.  With that being said, it appears you have very thick nasal skin that is acne-prone.  I would recommend an in-office consultation with a Board-Certified plastic surgeon who will accurately examine your nose and develop a plan tailored to your needs.  Good luck!
