Is it possible to have no shadow on your bridge? (Photos)

What is the procedure in order to make a bridge like mine not so noticeable or in other words not have an obvious bone structure similar to these photos.

thanks for your question. Shadows and highlights are normal in the nose and face as long as they are in the right places. Professional magazine photographs are highly edited and studio lighting is very different from what you see at home. If you see a surgeon for a consult they may take photographs to show you what can be improved. Good luck.

It's very difficult to compare your nose with a "selfie" photograph from a cell phone verses a professional modeling photograph that is been airbrushed and Photoshopped. In addition, the lighting is completely different ion a professional photograph. It's impossible to try to compare apples to oranges. Digital computer imaging of your nose on your facial features in a  rhinoplasty surgeon's office would be helpful to understand what can and cannot be accomplished with your nose with a rhinoplasty procedure. Shadowing is caused by differential lighting.
