From Steven M. Denenberg, M.D.

Here is the modification I made of your profile. I brought the tip of your nose back closer to your face, raised the tip, and especially reduced the strength of your nose, at the top, just below your eyebrows:

Click on the photos above to see rhinoplasty patients of mine, many of whom had their noses shortened and deprojected.

Here is an animation of the morph:

Raising the tip of the nose and bringing it back closer to the face involve complicated work on the tip of the nose. You mentioned that tip work was not in the plan for your rhinoplasty, but in any event most plastic surgeons are not able to make these changes. If you have a revision, you need to see before and after photos of the doctor's other patients who had deprojection and elevation of the tip, so you can be sure he has the skill to accomplish those changes.

Let me know what you think of these modifications.

If you have any questions about this, or if you want me to evaluate any other photos of yours, feel free to email me:

A couple more points about selecting your surgeon:
1) It is mandatory that you see before and after photos before deciding on a surgeon. The rhinoplasty operations are the most difficult procedures a plastic surgeon performs. Every surgeon performs them with different levels of skill. You need to see that your doctor has been able to accomplish for other people what you want for yourself. Certificates and board certifications won't tell you that -- photos will.

2) Computer imaging is important. It allows you to see what the doctor has in mind, so you can tell him if you don't think he understands your goals accurately.
