Rhinoplasty and facial harmony
Hello and thank you for your question. This is a great question and exactly what I think about every time I perform a rhinoplasty. It is extremely important to consider all aspects of a patient's facial harmony when planning nasal surgery. The most important aspect is
to find a surgeon you are comfortable with. I recommend that you seek consultation
with a qualified board-certified plastic surgeon who can evaluate you in
Best wishes and good luck.

For the last 15 years I have used a morphing program to plan my surgery. I do this with the patient. It is not a perfect approach but seems to work well.
Facial enhancement to rhinoplasty
It is important to enhance the facial beauty by using the nose properly. For example if someone is of Asian descent then a narrowed nose will not fit a wide oval-shaped face.Similarly, if somebody is Caucasian of Northern European descent and has a flat bridge of the nose it will take with the beauty of the face.
I think that everyone's rhinoplasty is going to be different. Patient personal preference is a key component into how the rhinoplasty will be performed and what the goals of surgery are.
You have to spend an hour or more with a rhinoplasty surgeon to understand what can be done to enhance your appearance. It cannot be typed out in this forum.
