Answer Header & Date
Answer Snippet
Would a non-surgical rhinoplasty correct my septum and contour the bridge of my nose?
Non surgical rhinoplasty.
Jul 2, 2020
The short answer is no with regard to non-surgical rhinoplasty. With your degree of asymmetry and problems a filler could not come close to making a significant difference. You will need an in-person consultation to evaluate what is causing these problems, including an internal nasal exam to see the status of your septum and other supporting structures.
What's your advice on cartilage in form of a bump on my nose?
Post Rhinoplasty Bumpiness
Jun 16, 2020
From your photos it looks like you have what we call a postoperative "polly beak" problem. This forms when the skin is thick and/or the cartilage is too high above the tip. The steroid injections help for a while but the problem soon returns. The long term treatment is to smooth down the cartilage on the dorsum and  also provide a little more tip projection. This does require another procedure, but much simpler than your primary rhinoplasty. I hope this gives you a better idea of what ...
What do you recommend for my tear troughs? What would you prioritize to fix? i am unhappy about lots o
Tear Troughs and Other Thought
May 26, 2020
Thank you for the question. You have early tear trough formation which would best be treated with a hyaluronic filler. The filler can also be used to mask the hump on your nasal bridge. Micro-needling and laser treatments would help with skin texture and color, but not change the shape of any facial features. It is best to have an in person consultation to make sure that these are best for your individual needs.
Would I be a candidate for a nonsurgical nose job?
Non Invasive Rhinoplasty
May 21, 2020
Using fillers to change the shape of the nose has become popular, but there are limits to what can be done safely. Since we are essentially adding volume to the nose in key places you cannot expect a nose to be smaller than before injection. We can, however, hid a bump on the bridge, make noses more symmetric, and even change the angle between the lip and nose. The other big factor is that these changes are not permanent, and further injections will be needed 9-12 months later to maintain...
How can we fix collapsed bridge and tip?
Repair of Collapsing Nasal Bridge
Mar 26, 2020
Your photos show that what we call the middle vault of your nose is asymmetric and weak. This can be caused by trauma to your nose at some point, or previous surgery that did not go well. It can be repaired using your own cartilage (often from the septum) to support and realign your nasal cartilage and bone. This helps not only the appearance but also the breathing ability. To be absolutely sure I would recommend a consultation to confirm what all the internal and external problems are.
Will a septoplasty ruin the shape of the tip of my nose?
Crooked Nose
Mar 17, 2020
The septum often determines if a nose is straight or crooked. If not addressed at the initial surgery the nose often cannot be put into the midline. In a second operation it would be necessary to secure the septum in the middle, then adjust the tip and bridge to where they should be, Unfortunately this is not an uncommon occurrence. I would suggest an in person consultation to determine exactly what your needs are. 
How close can I realistically get to my goal in rhinoplasty?
Imaging a Rhinoplasty
Feb 2, 2020
Computer imaging is a way to simulate rhinoplasty results. It can be accurate if used in a responsible manner. Your changes are possible, as far as the dorsum is concerned. There is much more which needs to be considered, such as the width and position of the tip. It is therefore best to schedule a consultation with an experienced rhinoplasty surgeron to figure out what would work best for you.
Is it possible to add cartilage in the tip of your nose to increase the size???
Jan 10, 2020
Rhinoplasty surgery is always about using your own anatomy to enhance the outside appearance. The answer to your question about using cartilage in the tip is that it can realigned to change the shape to a more aesthetic condition. The skin then shrinks down around the cartilage structure. Ethnic rhinoplasty is a bit different than Caucasian nasal surgery. The skin tends to be thicker and the cartilage softer. Thus techniques an differ. It is best to sit down with a experienced rhinoplasty...
Am I a good candidate for revision Asian rhinoplasty to make my nose look more defined and narrow? (ph
Revision Asian Rhinoplasty
Jan 3, 2020
Using silicone implants in the nose has always been a controversial technique. Although very common in Asia, it is used much less in the USA due to the risks of infection, extrusion, and long term thinning of the skin. Further surgery once an implant is in place can add risks as listed above. To assess your situation accurately a consultation to assess your present nasal shape and skin condition is required. Doing further osteotomies to thin the dorsum is likely not the best idea.
What procedures are recommended to achieve this look?
Dec 12, 2019
Rhinoplasty is always a very personal procedure. It is best to consult in person with an experienced rhinoplastic surgeon so that he/she can work out with you what the goals are. Numerous techniques are available such as narrowing the tip, changing the tip angles, or modifying the bridge so that it all fits together in the end. Sometimes the chin needs to be augmented as well, and you will need expert help in determining what works best for your unique situation.
Can anyone straighten my nose? My rhinoplasty didn't help at all.
Crooked Nose
Nov 24, 2019
Tour photos show a depression on one side which is due to both bone and cartilage malposition. To repair this you do require another surgical procedure to straighten the bones, and also use some cartilage to lift the upper lateral cartilage and hold it in place. A cartilage graft may be needed, which would come from your nasal septum or possibly the ear if needed. It is also important to realize that nobody has a perfectly straight nose, and some asymmetry exists in everyone.
Is it fine to get a septoplasty after getting a rhinoplasty?
Deviated Septum after Rhinoplasty
Aug 21, 2019
Yes, it is possible to correct your breathing with a second procedure. After your rhinoplasty surgery this is a bit more complicated so make sure you consult with a surgeon who is experienced in both functional nasal surgery and rhinoplasty. This is usually someone trained in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery.

Rhinoplasty Candidate?
Aug 9, 2019
From these pictures it does appear you can benefit from nasal surgery. Your skin does look a little thick in the tip area, which may mean that healing would take longer to see the final results. You really need to sit down with an experienced surgeon who can tell you what is in your best interests and counsel you on the best way to proceed. Your own ideas and those of the surgeon must coincide to reach a good outcome. 
What could be done to return the shape of my nose to the way it was before?
Treatment after Nasal Trauma
Jul 15, 2019
Dear Awewsome728,It has been only about a month since your accident and there is likely still some swelling. If you are unsure about the long term changes in your nose it is best to consult with an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon who can advise you on the immediate and long term options. It may be that your swelling will go down and no treatment is needed. If not, then you need to know what your options are. 
Would fillers be able to improve the overall look of my chin and nose? Is there a more appropriate pro
Filler for Chin and/or Nose
Jun 24, 2019
Filler can certainly be used to augment the chin and help your profile. This can last for 6-12 months and will need to be repeated to maintain the shape. Your nose is over projected and filler can only be used for small changes, which are also temporary. The other consideration is surgery to place a permanent chin implant, and rhinoplasty to straighten your nose, remove the hump, and correct tip position and shape. I would recommend a consultation with an experienced rhinoplasty surgeron to...
