Rhinoplasty for hump removal and narrowing the nose
The bridge can be made straight by raising the radix and lowering the bump. Osteotomies can narrow the bony vault too
I do not think that you are a good candidate for alar base resection, as the nostrils do not appear to flare. You may wind up with a "bowling pin" deformity of the alae.
I would encourage you to consider a chin implant to balance your face.
Best wishes and good luck.

you would be a good candidate for a rhinoplasty. I first like to find out from the patient what bothers you about your nose . I then examine your nose. I then discuss with you your goals.Then I write out a detailed plan .
As an artist, I like to use the reshaping Rhinoplasty technique. I use advanced suturing and cartilage graft techniques in order to give a natural result. In addition I incorporate the Finesse technique ,that I invented,to minimize pain and bruising after surgery. It's not uncommon for patients not to have any bruising after surgery .
I hope you find this information useful.
During a rhinoplasty, a dorsal hump can be removed. In addition, through controlled breaks in the nose and wide dorsum can be narrowed. Nostrils can be narrowed through small incisions around the the base of the nose.
I would recommend consulting with a facial plastic surgeon who regularly performs rhinoplasty to explore your options.
Rhinoplasty candidate, 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, After having analyzed all the info. and photos provided to us, i recommend you perform an Open Full Rhinoplasty, includding narrowing of the nasal base and nostrils, with nasal bones treatment (controled fracture) and alar + triangular nasal cartilages re-shaping.
With this procedure you get a delicate nose, better harmonize with your other facial features.

As far as to who should performed your surgery......it depends more than anything on the experience of the surgeon. He/She should be certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery or the American Board of Facial Plastic Surgery. That's why it's so important that you be able to see allot of photos before and after. You want to be able to urge the whole of the work. I make a comparison to baseball. Think about this. Would you rather have a player on your team that hits a home run once in awhile or one that has a consistent average? There are some excellent facial plastic surgeons as there are plastic surgeons who do beautiful nasal work. When it comes to your nose, it's is imperative that you research as much as you possibly can before making your decision. This is your face and there no covering it up.
I wish you the best on your journey. I hope that the info provided has been helpful. Should you require any further clarification, do not hesitate to contact us. I personally conduct all the consultations and formulate an individual operative plan based on physical findings. We are one of only a few in South Florida that employ a web based program called TouchMD. Through this program potential patients from as far away as California can upload their photos. I then review each and everyone and draw my recommendations on your actual picture. This info is made available to you with the use of a private password that only you will have. TouchMD is private and follows all applicable privacy laws (HIPPA). I answer all questions personally, not through patient coordinators or other marketing individuals.
Good luck, Dr PG
