I have a bulbous nose and I’m an Asian. Which rhinoplasty procedure would make my nose appear smaller?

Q: I don’t have high bridge and I don’t mind about it. All I want is to get a smaller nose and a sharper tip. May I known what rhinoplasty procedure should I take as I know rhinoplasty can be consist of many types. Should I do an alarplasty? Thanks for reading

A: Especially for Asian rhinoplasty the relationship between the profile and frontal appearance of the nose is very important.  Due to the thickness of our skin, there is a limitation to how small a nose can be made without increasing projection (or the height) of the nose.
Alar base modification would be effective in reducing some of the flare and width of your nostrils.
