What do I need to do to start the process of getting rhinoplasty surgery?

I am wanting to get a nose job and I would like some direction on how to go about it. I would also like information on how to find a suitable surgeon.

Nostrils create bulbous looking tip; rhinoplasty necessary?

I look like I have a bulbous tip and my nose spreads a LOT when I smile. However the tip isnt solid its like a 'bubble' my nostrils make and can be pushed in easily. However my bridge is quite slim (my nose looks like a triangle!) Would I require rhinoplasty to correct this or would alarplasty or a 'tip' plasty correct it? Or even just suturing somehow?? Thank you for your time!

    Good morning Bri92,Dr Rodrigo Teixeira, Plastic Surgeon.Tip rhinoplasty, can reshape the tip of the nose by lifting a droopy tip or making it more refined. It sounds like you are after a more refined tip. Also, the width of the nostrils can be narrowed, but not without scars.The changes with smile are dynamic and as a result of your facial muscles action.

    Rhinoplasty surgery total cost varies significantly depending on your circumstances.Just to give you an idea, cosmetic rhinoplasty ranges from about 12k to 16k.Medicare eligibility and private health insurance cover (non-cosmetic) may reduce costs substantially.A more accurate quote will be given after your consultation with me.You can also check my rhinoplasty webpage and download other FAQs about rhinoplasty:
