Can rhinoplasty be effective for my nose type? (Photo)
Doctor Answers 7
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. 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.

Rhinoplasty without scars
Great question. To fully answer your question specific to your nose, photographs that show the front-on, profile, and oblique views of your whole face would be needed. To address your question of changing a nasal tip without scars, this can be done using an endonasal rhinoplasty technique. Rhinoplasties performed using this technique utilize incisions/scars hidden inside your nose. The nasal tip can absolutely be refined in this way. You should seek out a surgeon with endonasal rhinoplasty experience and skill.
Rhinoplasty , some advices:
Thank you very much for sharing your concerns with us.
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.

A full set of facial photographs are required to make a determination about being a candidate for a rhinoplasty, since the nose is a three-dimensional structure. Most patients must undergo a full rhinoplasty to ensure that all of the components of the nose are in balance with each other, an the entire new nose balances with the patient's facial features. All of the required changes to the nose can be performed with a closed rhinoplasty approach which involves incisions placed on the inside of the nose and avoids all external incisions. For more information and many examples, please see the link and the video below
Thank you for your question. With the photo being limited I can only give a general answer. From what I can see of your nose, a tip rhinoplasty should address the concerns you have. Please consult a board certified plastic surgeon and they will be able to address your concerns and help you come up with a plan that will help you meet your goal.

smix, of course you can get a natural look but I cannot tell what you need based on a photo nor can any other rhinoplasty specialist. I would guess that you would benefit from alar rim reduction with your rhinoplasty but should this be the case it should be staged (meaning done after your rhinoplasty) for several good reasons. See an experienced surgeon that does "only faces" and has great photos. Good luck!
