Rhinoplasty for refinement
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, After having analyzed all the info. and photos provided to us, i recommend you perform an Open Full Rhinoplasty, includding narrowing of the nasal base and nostrils, with nasal bones treatment (controled fracture) and alar + triangular nasal cartilages re-shaping.
With this procedure you get a delicate nose, better harmonize with your other facial features.

Ethnic - African American Rhinoplasty
I think bridge elevation is appropriate in your case. In addition, to tip refinement to reduce the bulbous tip and nostril narrowing. Your rhinoplasty falls into the "more challenging" category so make sure you choose your surgeon wisely.
Ask your surgeon the ratio of revisions and you will see that statistically it is not more than %1-2
Sounds reasonable to me
Thanks for your question. I think what you are saying all sounds reasonable. Rhinoplasty is all about expectations. If your expectations are reasonable, then you are likely to be happy with the result. If you came in with a picture of Michael Jacksons nose and said you wanted that....then your expectations would not be very reasonable. Make sure your surgeon has some experience with African American Rhinoplasty. Even thought the principles are the same, the techniques are a little different. Most people want to maintain some of their ethnicity but just want to soften some of the features that they don't like.
