Procedures to define nose shape and improve breathing? (Photo)
Doctor Answers 8
Thank you for your question. Rhinoplasty can address both shape and size of the nose as well as the functionality. I suggest that you move forward and consult with a board certified facial plastic surgeon. The consultation will allow your surgeon and you to understand your desires as well as discuss the cost, recovery and results.
Rhinoplasty, 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.

Asian Rhinoplasty - Choosing your surgeon
An important step in choosing the right nose for you is choosing the right surgeon. Looking at his/her before and after photos will give you a good sense of his/her aesthetic. Once you have found an experienced Asian rhinoplasty specialist, be clear about your aesthetic goals. He/she will be able to perform computer morphing of your pictures to give you a sense of what is technically achievable and what is appropriate for your face, and recommend any adjunctive procedures to attain the best result for you.
Costs will vary by location, surgeon experience and surgeon expertise.

You are a perfect candidate for open rhinoplasty with rib grafting
Ideally, you would be a good candidate for a rhinoplasty that incorporates the use of ear and rib cartilage to augment the bridge of your nose and project the tip. Alternatively, many people prefer the use of an implant placed on the bridge with local cartilage (septum) to augment the tip.
