Rhinoplasty to Improve Nose
Thank you for sharing your question and photos. Based on the photos you have provided, you appear to be a good candidate for a rhinoplasty, however it is difficult to provide specific recommendations for your particular case without an in person evaluation. I recommend consulting with a board-certified plastic surgeon who can use 3-D photographs to simulate realistic surgical outcomes for your specific nose. I also suggest seeking multiple opinions before committing to a surgeon. Best of luck.
Am I a good candidate for Rhinoplasty surgery
Thank you for your question and photos.
I believe you can certainly benefit from a rhinoplasty procedure to feminize and bring harmony to your entire face. Make certain you verbalize your concerns clearly and have realistic expectations before moving forward. There are now imaging systems such as Crisalix that do not require an in office visit (you can e-mail photos).
Do your homework!

Can my nose be improved on with plastic surgery?
Keep in mind that following advice from a surgeon on this or any other website who proposes to tell you exactly 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 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). If you live outside of the United States, the surgeon should ideally be a member of the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS) that you trust and are comfortable with. You should discuss your concerns with that surgeon in person.
