Rhinoplasty for bulbous tip and wide nostrils? (Photo)
Doctor Answers 10
You are a very attractive female and your desire to narrow your bridge is realistic and obtainable yet the desired set back of your tip, which you have pictured, is not a good idea. There is an ideal naso-facial angle which measures the projection of the tip of the nose off the plane of the face [a line drawn from the chin to the forehead]. Your present naso-facial angle is more ideal than your second morphed profile that shows a tip with decreased projection. If you go that route, not only will your nose look under-projected, but your goal to have a narrower appearing nose from the front view will be compromised. The first picture shows a somewhat wide tip [although you are very pretty] which will appear even more wide if you find someone to set back your tip. Be very careful and a Plastic Surgeon board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery or an Otolaryngologist/Facial Plastic Surgeon should discuss these conflicting goals with you. My inclination would be to narrow your bridge and your tip yet maintain your beautiful tip projection and I would recommend doing it via closed rhinoplasty.

RHINOPLASTY TO REFINE NOSE
Thanks for your photos and question. Overall you are starting with a good nose and sounds like you want some refinement to the tip and bridge. Based on the photos I think you can make good improvement with a rhinoplasty. Obviously, you can't have someone else's nose but it gives an idea of what you like. lowering the bridge slightly and narrowing the tip and nostrils is reasonable goal. See a facial plastic or a plastic surgeon who does rhinoplasty for a consultation. Good luck
The changes to your nose are very much possible with rhinoplasty. These are common changes that many people want made and I think you'll be very happy with your result. Just make sure you do your homework about choosing a rhinoplasty surgeon.
