Default What would a nose surgeon do to my nose?

I know that after a nose surgery my nose won't look totally new - but what would it look like? How do I figure this out?

Also, I want to have not just a rhinoplasty but also a blepharoplasty to make my eyes bigger. My eyes are just very small proportionate to my face, especially compared to how big my nose is. Also, mostly what bothers me is the wideness of the nose, and how it kinda comes up at the end with a bulb when seen from the side. Does it look like I'd have to have my nasal bones broken or could it just all be done soft-tissue? How much do you think it would cost? Thanks!

hi,

I think you have a good nose for rhinoplasty-- the doc can certainly narrow it, and refine your tip. Most docs use computer imaging to show you what you would look like at the consult. Many doctors do these consults for free. You should look into doctors who friends or family have used with good success. Seeing good results first hand is usually the best way-- especially if the patient had a nose similar to yours pre-surgery. Hope that helps! good luck!

I just worry that I won't have definition after. Maybe I'm asking too much. So consults are sometimes free? That's fantastic I'll look into it! Thank you!

Well blepharoplasty can't make your eyes bigger, that's just for lifting sagging lids (your eyes don't have that). So sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I don't think that procedure is for you

On the nose, I guess thinning out the tip and bringing it down a little would be an improvement. You do not have a big nose by any means, so don't touch the bridge! I don't see any signs that your nose is broken, what made you think that?

I'm sure you know how much rhinoplasty prices can differ. I would guess in your area it would cost around $8,000 to $11,000 for surgery with a good doctor.

Oh... and welcome to the forum
