Given the long pointed tip which is also bulbous a well done rhinoplasty will be very rewarding.RegardsDr. J
Refining the nose by rhinoplasty.
Your photos show nasal contours which should be able to be refined with rhinoplasty. Nasal shape is due to 2 factors: 1) the shape of the bone and cartilage, which is the structure of your nose, and 2) the thickness of the skin cover. By reshaping the contour of the bone and cartilage the nasal shape will change and can be made narrower, more or less projecting, smaller, etc. How much definition can be achieve is dependent on the thickness of the nasal skin. A consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon will help you understand your specific anatomy and what could be achieved. Recovery is approximately 1 week.
Rhinoplasty, some advices:
Thank you very much for sharing your concerns with us.
The harmony between facial parts makes us instinctively recognize the beauty... without knowing it, without defining it, just a perception that surprises and captivates us.
In this regard, I suggest perform a Closed Rhinoplasty (without visible scars) to treat the tip, base and nasal bridge.
With this procedure you get a delicate nose, better harmonize with your other facial features.
Dr. Emmanuel Mallol Cotes.-
You are an excellent candidate for tip-rhinoplasty. The tip can be made smaller and more defined. The recovery is ultra-rapid. You should seek an experienced surgeon with a focus on rhinoplasty to help you.
Best of luck!
By the pictures alone, it appears that you would be an excellent candidate for tip rhinoplasty. Other factors, like the thickness of your skin, would have to be taken into consideration after a thorough clinical exam. Time taken off is usually dependent on your line of work. I typically ask all my rhinoplasty patients not to perform rigorous activities or heavy lifting for 4 weeks.
The close up of the tip is very distorted by the optics of the camera' lens. The best answers are found in a consultation with an expert in the field.There is little accuracy that can be gleaned from our answers.
You would need to be seen in person to evaluate your nose and review your goals. Best of luck.......
Hello and thank you for your question. Based on your
photograph, you may benefit from a tip refining rhinoplasty. Your surgeon can
accomplish this by trimming, suturing, and reshaping the cartilage in your
lower nose. Cartilage grafts may also be used to help improve tip refinement.
The most important aspect is
to find a surgeon you are comfortable with. I recommend that you seek consultation
with a qualified board-certified plastic surgeon who can evaluate you in
Best wishes and good luck.

Postoperative recovery after septorhinoplasty / nose surgery
A nasal tip rhinoplasty usually involves shaping and contouring of the underlying nasal tip cartilages.. it is a common reason for patients deciding to have a rhinoplasty. Most of the swelling decrease in the first 6 weeks and then over a course of a year.. you are correct, pictures are great however usually more is seen on examination.. Best of luck
