My nose is really pointy and large from the side?
If you are unhappy with the look of your nose, you think that you would be much happier after a rhinoplasty operation; if you had an accident and the shape of your nose got worsened after this accident; then you can be a good candidate for rhinoplasty operation. It is a well-known fact that individuals with feeling themselves beautiful have higher self-esteem. Therefore; if the look or functionality of your nose bothers you, you can get benefit from a rhinoplasty operation.
There are different kinds of rhinoplasty operations however we can divide them as the one that requires bone excision and the one that does not need bone excision. The main fact that we classify the rhinoplasty operations like that is that the results and postoperative period is associated closely with this fact. In the operations like “nasal tip correction”, “simple rhinoplasty” there is no need for a bone excision however these minor operations cannot be beneficial for everyone. The operation type is need to be determined by the surgeon according to needs of the patient. In these minor operations the rhinoplasty is performed with closed method. The bone and the cartilage tissues are not involved in the surgery directly. Small nasal bumps can be removed in these operations.
In the operation that needs the bone and cartilage tissues to be involved; open approach is used. In the procedures with open approach, the size, shape and functionality of the nose can be improved. The big nasal bumps can be removed and septal deviations can be corrected providing a better nasal airway.
Large and point nose
Thank you for your question and photographs.
It is important when looking for a plastic surgeon for Rhinoplasty to find one who is board certified and specializes in Rhinoplasty to obtain the best results possible. To fully evaluate your nose, you would need to schedule a consultation with a full facial and nasal exam. However, from what I can tell, it appears your tip is enlarged and could use a reduction. You would benefit from a tip rhinoplasty which includes trimming the lower lateral cartilages and placing precision sutures to refine the tip and make it look more pleasing and small in size. It can be beneficial to seek a practice that offers 3D simulation to get a better idea of your post operative results. At my office we offer our patients Crisalix which provides simulations for cosmetic procedures, such as breast augmentations, rhinoplasty, body contouring, etc by scanning the patient’s face/body and showing them on the screen what their before and afters would like. Best of luck in your endeavors! Sincerely,

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.

Fixing your nose
Thank you for your question As an artist I like using the reshaping techniquewhen performing rhinoplasties. Using advanced suturing techniqueI can change the shape of the nasal cartilages giving a refined more natural nose. I like to find out from the patient what they don't like about their nose and what their goals are. I Then examine the nose and I write up a detailed operative plan. I incorporate the FINNESSE technique which I invented. Bleeding, bruising and postoperative pain is minimal when compared to traditional technique and recovery is quicker. I don't routinely pack the nose. It's not uncommon with some patients to have no bruising after surgery. I hope you find this information useful.
