Reshaping The African-American Nose
Achieving Your Dream Nose
After reaching an understanding about what it is that you are unhappy with, your plastic surgeon can point out what the options are for correcting those flaws. Sometimes it is a matter of sculpting the underlying cartilage framework. Sometimes bones will have to be moved. And occasionally excess soft tissue can be removed. Your plastic surgeon can also explain what things are not possible.
The pictures that you posted are helpful. If your goal is to make your nose appear slimmer and with a more defined tip then I think that is entirely possible. I suggest you schedule a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon or facial plastic surgeon and get started. Best of luck to you.

Keep in mind that following advice from a surgeon on this or any other website who proposes to tell you what to do based on two dimensional photos without examining you, physically feeling your tissue, assessing your desired outcome, taking a full medical history and discussing the pros and cons of the operative procedure would not be in your best interest. Natural appearing results need to be individualized and what is appropriate for one patient is not necessarily the best for someone else. I would suggest that you find a surgeon with extensive ethnic rhinoplasty experience certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and one who is ideally a member of The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) or a facial plastic surgeon (otolaryngologist) that you trust and are comfortable with. You should discuss your concerns with that surgeon in person.

Rhinoplasty for African-American nose
I have been fortunate over the past 21 years to have had excellent experience with this operation. Be sure to see someone certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery who has had a great deal of experience with ethnic rhinoplasty. Insist on reviewing a comprehensive portfolio of pre- and post-op pictures so you can gauge the surgeon's expertise as well as the types of results that are reasonable to expect.
