i went to 2 different doctors for consultation. one of them said i need only to reduce the nostrils and he said he could also refine the nasal bridge without changing the tip by closed rhinoplasty . the other one said i need also more tip refinment as he told me its bulbous& he suggested open rhinoplasty.can you refine the bridge without the tip or it will not fit the new narrowed bridge ? and which suggestion is better for more natural look without anyone noticing i had surgery, (nb: i have thick skin)

What Does My Nose Need?
Thank you for sharing your question and photos. Without seeing more accurate photos with different angles it is difficult to make specific recommendations for you. I recommend consulting with an additional board certified specialist to make sure you have had several professional opinions before choosing your surgeon. In my practice, I like to use 3-D Volumetric photos to simulate realistic outcomes for each individual patient. This is a great way to ensure that you and your surgeon have the same aesthetic goals.

There are different kinds of rhinoplasty operations however we can divide them as the one that requires bone excision and the one that does not need bone excision. The main fact that we classify the rhinoplasty operations like that is that the results and postoperative period is associated closely with this fact. In the operations like “nasal tip correction”, “simple rhinoplasty” there is no need for a bone excision however these minor operations cannot be beneficial for everyone. The operation type is need to be determined by the surgeon according to needs of the patient. In these minor operations the rhinoplasty is performed with closed method. The bone and the cartilage tissues are not involved in the surgery directly. Small nasal bumps can be removed in these operations
In the operation that needs the bone and cartilage tissues to be involved; open approach is used. In the procedures with open approach, the size, shape and functionality of the nose can be improved. The big nasal bumps can be removed and septal deviations can be corrected providing a better nasal airway.
