What can be done about nasal degeneration? (Photos)
Doctor Answers 3
Thank you for your question.I would recommend that you schedule a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in rhinoplasty so they can perform a physical nasal examination and give you the best recommendations. From the looks of your photographs and what you are describing, you could build up the tip of your nose with cartilage from the nose or ear (this does not deform the ear) or MTF cartilage which is human donor cartilage. Then perform an alarplasty to reduce the size of the nostrils so they are not as wide. I hope this helps.
Best of luck in your endeavors!
