A rhinoplasty can be performed to create a nose that blends or fits with the surrounding facial structures. The best way to identify the approach and type of rhinoplasty you should undergo would be after a thorough conversation regarding your goals and concerns of your nose. After understanding these items, a customized rhinoplasty plan can be created for you.
In reviewing your pictures, you're an attractive young female. The tip of your nose is bulbous, your bridges wide, and the bridge is slightly crooked. A rhinoplasty to improve all of these features would create a better version of your current nose. Due to the shape of your tip, I believe you would most benefit from an open rhinoplasty procedure.
I hope this helps.
Closed Rhinoplasty candidate
A closed rhinoplasty approach can address making the required changes to the nose which include straightening and narrowing the bridge line, refining/narrowing the bulbous tip, and shaving down a dorsal hump, with all of the incisions placed on the inside of the nose. For many examples of narrowing a wide nose, please see the video and the link below
sarahbabe1d, there are so many variables that go into evaluating a nose that looking at 3 2D photos really makes it difficult to say much more than generalities. In general you would be a candidate for a closed approach with the goal of making your nose fit your face. See an experienced surgeon that does "only faces" and one that has many good photos to review on their web site. Search the Internet and good luck!
I think that you have to be very specific in your goals before undergoing a rhinoplasty. Best to see a few surgeons for consultation. Good luck.
What type of nose job should I get?
Hello sarahbabe1d -Thanks for your question. It is my opinion that you would benefit from a rhinoplasty that straightens your nose, narrows the bridge, and refines the tip of your nose. While you have what is known as a bulbous tip, I can't tell if you have thick nasal skin. Excess cartilage in the tip of the nose can be surgically reduced to make a cuter tip, but this will be limited by how thick the skin is. I recommend that you consult with a rhinoplasty expert in your area for more information.Good luck,Dr. Shah
Nasal tip refinement
Thank you for your question. From the limited images, it appears that your nose is deviated to your left side with a bulbous and unrefined nasal tip. It also seems that your nasal skin thickness is medium to thick, which has small limitations with regards to tip refinement. That said, without knowing any medical history, you might be a good candidate for a rhinoplasty. I suggest you get a consultation with a rhinoplasty expert. I would suggest that you don't focus too much on "What kind of nose job you should get" and rather look at the actual results of the surgeon you like. If no before and after pictures are shown to you, that's a red flag. Best wishes!
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.

What type of nose job should I get?
Every nose is
different and unique to that individual. If the appearance of your nose
concerns you enough to do something about it, it can be improved with a natural
artistically performed rhinoplasty. What would be the best option and exact
procedure would depend on an in person examination (not just an online
consultation) and discussion about desired outcome. Excellent results can
be achieved with either a closed or open technique.
Keep in mind that following advice from a surgeon on this or any other website
who proposes to tell you exactly what to do and how technically to do
it 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 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)
that you trust and are comfortable with. You should discuss your concerns with
that surgeon in person.

You have a wide bulbous tip that could be fixed by reducing the size, and orientation of your tip cartilages. With this and a slight dorsal reduction you should get a nice result. Usually an open rhinoplasty is indicated. Best wishes, Dr. T.
