I Have an Upward Tilted Nose. Is There Any Correction Other Than Surgery?

Q: Hello, my name is Brian. I have a slightly upwardly tilted nose. Whenever I look around when I’m in public I see that every other guy has a nose where the nostrils come back at about a 90 degree angle or maybe a little less. I don’t necessarily feel bad about my nose because it really isn’t bad. If you saw me right in front of you and facing you, you could see a little bit of the bottom of my nostrils. How come I have this and nobody else does?

A: Unfortunately there is no great nonsurgical way to counter-rotate your tip (give you closer to a 90-degree angle).

Fortunately, with surgery this can be accomplished and give you excellent results.  Everyone’s nose is different, and you were blessed with one that is slightly rotated up.  While you may want closer to a 90-degree angle, believe it or not, others seek a 100-degree angle or even more.  Everyone has their own sense of beauty.
