I think you would certainly benefit from a rhinoplasty. The rest of your face is in excellent balance with an oval shape and attractive features.
All the best,

Most people do not recognize or like themselves that much in the side view because it is not a perspective from which we frequently see ourselves. I think you would be surprised how much difference a rhinoplasty would make in your side profile and is really your only facial feature that is out of proportion with the rest of your face.
I think that you are an excellent candidate for a rhinoplasty. Best to be evaluated in person to review your goals an perform a proper exam.

ashleyhope12, hard to evaluate photos that are not the proper angles, lighting etc. but I would definitely agree with a rhinoplasty and perhaps a brow lift. See an experienced surgeon that does "only faces" and has great photos. Search the Internet and see the video

Thank you for your question. Based on your pictures, you would benefit from a Rhinoplasty. We need to remove the dorsal hump and redifine the tip. This will create a better balance in your face. I recommed that you look for a Board Certified Surgeon that has extensive experience on Rhinoplasty. Good luck
Closed rhinoplasty candidate
A closed rhinoplasty approach can accomplish making all of the changes to your nose with all the incisions placed on the inside of the nose. The dorsal hump is composed of both bone and cartilage which must be shaved down in order to remove it and improve the Aesthetics of the bridge line. Osteotomies placed in the nasal bones can accomplish narrowing the width of the nose. Rhinoplasty is one of the most difficult procedures to perform correctly in the entire field of cosmetic surgery, so choose your surgeon very wisely based on extensive experience. The nose can also be de-projected as well. For more information and many before and after examples, please see the link and the video below
Hello and thank you for your question. Based on your
photograph, you may benefit from a nasal tip de-projection and a conservative dorsal hump reduction. 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.

Thanks for your post and thoughtful comments. I believe that you are an excellent candidate to consider the benefits of a well planned and performed primary rhinoplasty to improve your dorsal hump and nasal projection. In my view, refinement rhinoplasty through an open approach is all you "need" for profile benefits to a youthful, attractive face. Devote your efforts to finding your choice of the best rhinoplasty surgeon and have an in-person consultation for his/her recommendations. Best Wishes.
