Am I a good Rhinoplasty candidate?

I have always disliked the size and bulbus overhanging end of my nose. My nasal bone is large as well but if I only focused on the end of my nose would I get good results?

I can provide a photo.

Rhinoplasty is a very delicate operation; the nose can be reshaped but there are many aspects that go into the operative plan which is different for each patient. Seek a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon that regularly performs rhinoplasty; look at their photo book and communicate your desired look. Remember there are always limitations to what can be done.

Although it is difficult to say without an in-person examination, you should be a good candidate for a rhinoplasty. The nose is an extension of the face, the first thing one sees – but not the first thing one should notice. That honor goes to the eyes. If a nose is out of proportion with the midface, we can correct this and return attention to the eyes. Cosmetic nose problems we most commonly correct are an unsightly or crooked hump (dorsum), a nose sagging from old age, and a bulbous or shape-less tip that needs refining. A nose should fit your facial features, skin tone, ethnicity, and even height, and a good surgeon will work with you to arrive at the optimally harmonious look. But many surgeons have a favorite style: the ski jump, the pug, the narrow bridge, etc. When interviewing doctors, be sure to ask to see their work. Have them show you photographs or computer images, or point out any nurses or other staff who have had a nose job done by them. If you see that each nose is an exact replica of the next, be wary: you want a nose that pleases you, not just your surgeon. I suggest making an appointment with a board-certified plastic surgeon for consultation to discuss your options.
