Rhinplasty and lip reduction procedures
and thanks for your question.
Generally speaking, most of the improvement you are requesting
are reasonable and possible with a rhinoplasty and lip reduction procedures.
I would highly recommend visiting a few plastic surgeons who
specialize in this exacting and artistic procedure. In our office we provide patients with
a personalized, individualized and complementary consultation to address these similar issues.

In general, making a nose thinner can really enhance the face as a whole, while making the lips smaller is not as much of an enhancement. The lips are also harder to make smaller because of their elasticity. Be sure to have a consultation with an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon to see what can be done for you.
Hello and thank you for your question. Based on your
photograph, you may benefit from a tip refining rhinoplasty. Your surgeon can
accomplish this by trimming, suturing, and reshaping the cartilage in your
lower nose. Cartilage grafts may also be used to help improve tip refinement.
You may also benefit from decreasing the width of the alar base. Make sure you specifically look at before and after
pictures of real patients who have had this surgery performed by your surgeon
and not just a computer animation system. 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 person.
Best wishes and good luck.
