Hi, I am wanting to get a rhinoplasty done to improve/create nice contours in my nose from the frontal view. (like what celebrities often do such as Delta Goodrem, Angelina Jolie, Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman, etc) I do NOT want to change my nose from the side-view as it is small, concave and has NO humps/bumps on the dorsal. So what I am looking for is to change my frontal contours of my nose whilst not compromising the overall look/shape of my nose from the side view. I also have THICKER nasal skin for a caucasian, which I know can sometimes be more difficult to operate on. I have heard great things about Dr Shahidi, Dr Mooney and Dr Zacharia. However on Dr Shahidi's website there only seems to be pictures from the side view which is basically irrelevant to me. If there is anyone else who was in a similar situation but went through with rhinoplasty (i.e only wanting to improve the FRONT view of their nose) could you please let me know your experiences and any recommendations for surgeons. I would greatly appreciate it, Thanks!
I had a Rhinoplasty done about 10 years ago. The change was very minimal. I was not too happy with the outcome. I saw a plastic surgeon in Brisbane recently and he said would not operate on my nose, as it has lots of soft thick tissue and he said that it would be too difficult to operate. I would like to know if there is a surgeon who will operate on my nose at all? ?? One surgeon has said this: "Very thick skin in the nasal tip means you should never perform a rhinoplasty. No matter what you do to the cartilage, the tip will be bigger after surgery, not smaller! Try explaining that to the patient after surgery! "
