While there are a variety of approaches and techniques employed by various surgeons, it is up to you to do your due diligence to find a rhinoplasty specialist in order to achieve the best results possible. Consult with an experienced rhinoplasty specialist and look carefully at his/her Before/Afters to find a surgeon with the aesthetic that matches yours.
Best wishes and good luck.

Open rhinoplasty candidate
Thank you for your question. You are an excellent candidate for an open rhinoplasty. The technique of this rhinoplasty would include alterations of your lower lateral cartilages and specific cartilage grafting techniques. In my opinion, this will give you a nose which is softer in its appearance. When looking for a plastic surgeon, make sure they are a member of The Rhinoplasty Society and are board certified in both Otolaryngology and in Plastic Surgery to obtain the best results possible. Best wishes in your endeavors!

Shape of nose
Dear lauraxrose, your nose is not bad. You should explain your problems with your nose. As far as I can see only a tip refinement will be enough for you.
