Indian Rhinoplasty For a Teenager
As an Indian teen, I am still debating on getting a nose job or not. My nose is straight without humps or hooks, but the nose overall is a bit wide from bridge to tip. The tip is fairly rounded. Normally it's not a problem but when I smile or laugh the tips becomes overly round. I was wondering if a rhinoplasty would make my nose slimmer, while preserving the length of my original nose, and make the tips smaller/more defined. Thank you for your time.
A rhinoplasty can address many issues, both functional (i.e. breathing) and cosmetic. To the extent that your issues are isolated to the tip being to round and the nostrils being too wide, the procedure can definitely be tailored to address only those issues. A rounded tip is generally the result of excess cartilage in the tip. This can very effectively be improved. Similarly, wide nostrils are the result of excess tissue at the notrils. An alarplasty would reduce the nostril size and the flare. We use 3D imaging at our office to show patients what they could look like before and after. I recommend you consult with a plastic surgeon who offers that so you can best communicate what you are looking to achieve. Good luck.
