I have a typical Asian big nose as well as a pretty flat bridge. What can be done to enhance my nose?

Q: I think I might need a silicon implant for a slightly higher ( just a tat higher) bridge as well as a tipplastry? I hope for a slightly sharper tip n narrower nose. Would a nasal bone shaving be necessary? Pls advise.


A: I do agree that your nose will have a more attractive profile and greater refinement from frontal view with some bridge augmentation.  I would strongly recommend using tissue from your own body as this will create the safest, permanent and I feel, the most attractive result.  Silicone is less than ideal for its temporary nature, high risk of complications, and un-natural contours it can create over time.  

By building up and projecting and refining the tip and bridge of your nose, you will be able to achieve the look you seek without shaving the nasal bones.
