Can I Get a Wider and Flatter Nose?

My nose is way to slim and pointy. I think if my nose was a bit wider and flatter it would compliment my other features. I always hear people getting a slimmer nose and smaller and all that kind of stuff but never wider and flatter. Also, How much do think the surgery will cost? Thank you for answering!

Nasal changes with rhinoplasty

An experienced rhinoplasty surgeon can offer a wide variety of changes to nasal size and shape.  I would recommend a consultation with videoimaging to evaluate desired changes.  Your chosen surgeon can then discuss possible techniques to use.  You are correct that achieving complimentary proportions with your other facial features is a major goal in aesthetic rhinoplasty.

An evaluation would be necessary to determine if you are a good candidate for a rhinoplasty.  At the time of a consultation your nasal anatomy can be evaluated and your desires can be discussed.  Together with your plastic surgeon a plan can be established to help you achieve your desired result.  A photo would be helpful as well.

Rhinoplasty can provide a variety of shape and contour changes.  It is hard to respond to your question without seeing you or a picture.  Find a board certified plastic surgeon who can show you a complete portfolio of his/her rhinoplasty work and make sure you fully understand what is recommended.

Although it is hard to tell without seeing your pictures what you are describing is likely possibly with rhinoplasty.  The cost varies based on where you live and the experience, skill, and techniques used by your surgeon.
