Before surgery this patient’s nose appears to be too large, asymmetric, and “bottom-heavy.” Following cosmetic rhinoplasty the tip has been refined, the nose is smaller and more feminine, and the asymmetries have been addressed.

This young woman from Washington, Michigan, requested a cosmetic rhinoplasty. Her main areas of concern were a wide nasal tip and a bump on the bridge of her nose. She also complained of airway obstruction due to a deviated nasal septum. After undergoing rhinoplasty her nose is smaller, more feminine, and in-keeping with her other facial features. Correction of her deviated septum improved breathing following surgery. Dr. Michael Fozo was voted one of Detroit’s Top Doctors by Hour Magazine.

Rhinoplasty for patients with thick skin can achieve beautiful results.
It is important not to make the nose smaller than the skin can accommodate. Taking away too much beneath the skin often causes a loss of definition, or a “doughy” appearance. In this patient the dorsum was kept strong and the tip was lifted and supported. The nose looks better from all angles.
This patient also had cervical liposuction, which improved her jawline and anterior neck.

When considering removing a dorsal hump, It is very important to think about how the nose will look afterwards on the frontal view. A good rhinoplasty surgeon will strive for a result that makes the nose look good in every angle. Both the frontal view and the profile are improved following rhinoplasty in this patient. Notice how the dorsal aesthetic lines are more even from top to bottom on the frontal view after surgery. Patients are often worried when they are told their nose would look wider in one area. IToo narrow is just as bad as too wide… fixing a nose that is too narrow in an area makes it look better not worse.
