Rhinoplasty, 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, I suggest perform a Closed Rhinoplasty (without visible scars) to treat the tip, base and nasal bridge.
With this procedure you get a delicate nose, better harmonize with your other facial features.

Following the advice from a surgeon on this or any other website who proposes to tell you exactly what to do based on limited 2 dimensional photos without examining you, physically feeling the tissue, assessing your desired outcome, taking a full medical history, and discussing the pros and cons of the operative procedure would not be in your best interest. I would suggest you find a plastic surgeon with extensive nasal surgery experience who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and ideally a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) or a facial plastic surgeon (ENT) that you trust and are comfortable with. You should discuss your concerns with that surgeon in person.
Additional information about the procedure will help you decide if it is a procedure that you want to pursue.

Thank you for your question.
As an artist I like using the the reshaping technique when performing Rhinoplasties. Using advanced suturing techniques I can change the nasal cartilages giving you a thinner , more refined natural looking nose.
I like to find out from the patient what they don't like about their nose and what their goals are. I then examine the nose and I write up a detailed operative plan.
I incorporate the FINNESSE technigue which I invented.Bleeding ,bruising and postoperative pain is minimal when compared to traditional techniques and recovery is quicker. I don't routinely pack the nose . It's not uncommon that some patients have no bruising after surgery. I hope you find this information useful.
Rhinoplasty and Facial Harmony
If your nose truly bothers you, consider a rhinoplasty consultation to discuss your concerns with an expert. Computer studies and facial analysis may help to demonstrate that your overall length is fine. If you wish to consider rhinoplasty for natural, softer and subtle refinement, then choose a physician with whom you can feel comfortable in discussing your concerns. Best wishes.
