Rhinoplasty: slim down nose nostrils and tip of the nose

sofiacsa
Hi,

I would like to get opinions about what would be the best procedure.
My nose is more on the "Fatty" side, but I would like to make it a little bit more feminine and looking less like a potato and making my nostrils smaller.
I would prefer to avoid messing with the nose bridge and septum unless it was necessary.
I was told once by a doctor that to make my nostrils smaller he would have to take some cartilage and make my nose a little longer, which I'm a little unsure of, as I'm happy with the length of my nose and not sure how I would feel with a longer nose.
Thanks
Sofia

Hello. I think to refine the lower third of the nose you could benefit from resection of the cephalic scrolls of the lower lateral cartilages (makes the tip less "bulbous"), as well as a combined nostril sill/alar base excision which will have the effect of decreasing alar flare and decreasing the width of the nasal base. The other doctor was correct in that you do have a short nose, and improved nasal symmetry may be achieved with a septal extension graft which could increase nasal length and address the columellar deficiency. Of course it is up to you to decide what you want corrected -just because it can be done doesn't mean it should be done! Cheers.

As rhinoplasty is an elective procedure, you may do different corrections according to your preferences. Indeed we may reduce nostrils size and improve tip definition, with or without changing the length of your nose. You may check similar cases, on our clinic website, Estetis Clinic, where are similar cases at before and after pictures.

Any change of the shape of your nose is up to you, and we surgeons always try to make your nose as you like it, of course it is also our job to give you some recommendations about the best aesthetic shape. It is possible to reduce the size of your nostrils without lengthening your nose, and also it is also possible to make your nose thinner

Hi, you should ask for second opinion , but in a doctor's office, so you can have a proper examination.
