Can my nose be shortened so its not as projected? (photos)
Doctor Answers 14
All due respect, you've been given some bad advice.
Your nose is strong in its forward projection away from your face. The tip hangs low. There is a small bump. The tip cartilages are strong, making the tip look prominent and wide. All of these areas can be addressed in a rhinoplasty.
You should know that especially the work on the tip requires very advanced techniques that most plastic surgeons cannot handle. You must be sure to see before and after photos showing good work narrowing and shaping the tip from any plastic surgeon you are considering.
you ou will be a great candidate for a rhinoplasty addressing all aspect your nose including your nasal

My advice would be to discuss your specific goals with a surgeon that has significant experience of rhinoplasty. The more specific the description of your goals, the easier it will be for your surgeon to tell you if the expectations can be met or not.

Can my nose be shortened so it is not so over projected
Yes certainly the appearance of your nose can be much improved. It is a combination of the septal cartilage and the length of the lower lateral cartilages that give the appearance of both dorsal and caudal overprojection.
By working on the above structures, it is possible to correct the dorsal and caudal overprojection.
Please visit my website and have a look at the rhinoplasty photo gallery to see a few examples of over projected noses that I have corrected.
Rhinoplasty candidate, some advices:
The harmony between facial parts makes us instinctively recognize the beauty... without knowing it, without defining it, just a perception that surprises and captivates us.
In this regard, I suggest perform a Closed Rhinoplasty (without visible scars) to treat the tip, base and nasal bridge.
With this procedure you get a delicate nose, better harmonize with your other facial features.
