Advice about my radix, is there a way to make it softer and less prominent? (photos)

Hello and thank you for your question. An in-person examination will provide you with the best advice. 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.

A lateral view would be necessary to assess the projection of your radix and whether it would warrant reduction. It can be rasped down along with the dorsum.
