Please Suggest a Good Rhinoplasty Surgeon Who Can Make my Nose Bridge Thinner/narrow and Alar Base Reduction?

Hello, I am an Indian women (26 years) and have a really wide nose with wide nostrils and wide bridge. I am looking for a good Rhinoplasty surgeon who can make the bridge of my nose narrow / thinner and alar base reduction. I have witnessed my friends who have gone through a nose job and their nose looks "pinched" after the surgery; I don't want the same thing happen to my nose. Please suggest a good doctor.

I think that you can do your own homework -  a surgeon's photos can provide you with a good idea of what he/she is capable of accomplishing as well as aesthetic ideals.

Narrowing nasal Bridge and Alar Base Reduction

An experienced rhinoplasty surgeon will narrow your bridge and reduce the width of your alar base, achieving a natural result. Obviousl,y avoid the surgeons who operated on your friends. A good surgeon will clearly explain the changes that will be made during your surgery. Look at the results in patients that had a nose similar to yours.

Please Suggest a Good Rhinoplasty Surgeon Who Can Make my Nose Bridge Thinner/narrow and Alar Base Reduction?

    The bridge can be narrowed and the alar base reduced, but this may not be all that is necessary to produce the result you want.  The pinched tip is easily avoided by not pursuing certain maneuvers.  Look at before and after galleries to determine if he or she produces the type of transformations that interest you.  Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of rhinoplasties each year.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA
