Example of rhinoplasty surgery to primarily address the nasal tip in this younger female patient from San Diego. As you can see, her nasal tip projected out too far from her face while also being quite wide or bulbous. Rhinoplasty surgery was able to provide her with a smaller nose that was in much better balance with her facial features. Although it would have been nice to go even smaller and more narrow, she happened to have relatively thicker skin. This very important distinction limited the amount of change that could be ultimately made with her particular nose. Despite this, she has an overall marked improvement in her nose – which is, after all, the most realistic of goals when it comes to cosmetic nose reshaping.
