I would like to fix my nose, it’s long and droops and the nostrils are wide and not in proportion to the rest of my face. How would you fix these issues?
Your concerns about your nose are very understandable, and you show insight by noting that it is not in proportion to the rest of your face. A reductive rhinoplasty to rotate the tip of the nose and to narrow the base of the nose is a very commonly sought procedure and is one that we carry out routinely. The tip of the nose can be elevated by re-aligning the cartilage framework and often by adding some additional grafts and cartilage to stabilize the nose in a new position. If after accomplishing this framework change the base of the nose is still excessively wide, incisions can be made either inside of the nose or at the junction of the nose and lip to narrow this area and reestablish harmony and proportion with the rest of your face. Your concerns about the nose being in proportion with the rest of your face are very appropriate, and again our goal with rhinoplasty surgery is not to make you appear operated on but, in fact, to give you a nose that is attractive and harmonizes with the rest of your face for a gratifying overall improvement.
