I already plan on getting a nose job. Which other small procedures can I get to make my look more refined?
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.

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.

What other procedures should I have with a rhinoplasty
More refined appearance
Thank you for your question.
Without seeing photos of your face, it is hard to recommend what procedures you may need to get the results you are hoping to achieve. Some common procedures to give a more feminine and refined look are fillers in the cheeks and lips, this gives the appearance of higher cheek bones and pouty lips as well as Botox in the frown lines and crows feet to give you a more youthful appearance. Depending on if you have a square/large jaw which can give a more masculine appearance, then you may consider a jaw reduction to give it a more narrow and pleasing shape and size. Again, these are just some suggestions that can give patients a more feminine and refined facial appearance, these may not be right for you personally, this is why I strongly recommend scheduling a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon to get an examination. I hope this helps.
Best of luck in your endeavors!
