Ethnic rhinoplasty

Your concerns of narrowing the width of the nose are common issues patients present with when seeking rhinoplasty. The difference is how to artistically address weak cartilages and a thick skin envelope. All these can be addressed with open structural rhinoplasty. We would be happy to meet with you for a consultation.

   A rhinoplasty is a reasonable request based upon the photos.  An exam would be necessary to address the other concerns.

You present a complex series of needs. The nose and the chin and jawline can best be assessed by a Board Certified PS, especially if your occlusion or your bite is normal. If you have a bite or occlusion problem you will need an oral maxillofacial surgeon. Once you address dental issues- then I would seek out the Board Certified PS. In my opinion- you will need additional tissue--- possibly an implant in your nose to achieve maximum benefit. With the regards to your chin- i would wait to comment following the above referenced suggestions.
