Can I Get a Slimmer Nose
Hi and thanks for your question and photos. Yes, the changes that you made to your nose in the photo on the right are absolutely possible. These are realistic changes that I do to noses 4 or 5 times every week. I would be happy to see you for a consultation with computer imaging. Good luck.
Is this rhinoplasty realistically possible?
First of all, the photographs are not taken at the same distance from the camera lens, therefore the photograph further away from the nose makes the nose appear more narrow. Best to have computer imaging performed in plastic surgery office setting by rhinoplasty specialist to understand what can and cannot be accomplished with a rhinoplasty on your facial features. A closed rhinoplasty approach can accomplish making the nostrils narrower, the bridge line more slim and refine the nasal tip if needed. For more information and many examples of narrowing a wide nose with surgical rhinoplasty through a closed approach, please see the link and the video below
Yes it is possible to make your nose smaller. You have a bulbous tip and a wide bridge. The bridge can be slimmed down and the bulbous tip will need reshaping and a possible graft. The best way to see what potential results could look like and what can be done is to have a computer imaging of your nose. Feel free to email me your pictures.

Probably yes, but you would need to be seen in person to know for sure. Sometimes you can do on the computer things that you can not accomplish in real life.
It looks like you modified the nasal width and nostril flare. This is possible in surgery but a full exam including examining your profile and performing an intranasal exam as well is important.
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. Make sure you specifically look at before and after
pictures of real patients who have had this surgery performed by your surgeon
and not just a computer animation system. 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 person.
Best wishes and good luck.

Through rhinoplasty we make small changes, but that is quite noticeable.

With this procedure you get a delicate nose, better harmonize with your other facial features.
