I have broad nasal base and low nasal bridge. My surgeon suggested increasing height of bridge makes nose narrow. Will it work?

Broad Nasal Base and Low Bridge

I prefer to augment the bridge with a diced cartilage/fascia graft to augment the bridge and also would narrow the nasal base with excision of skin inside the nostrils to narrow the nasal base and improve nasal proportions.

Broad nose

Dear Sugi

 By increasing height  of nose , it looks narrower. But if you want definate narrowing of the nose one must do osteotomy and alar base reduction depending on width of your face

 personal examination is  must  to tell what is aesthetically best for you.

 Best of Luck
