Can my nose be improved? Asian nose here.

Q: I am an Asian with a typical Asian nose. The bridge seems distinct but the tip is another story. It has fallen a bit short in terms of length and form, its looks is similar to when I look up at the ceiling and you can see my nostrils, it is like it is pressed up, the opening is a bit obvious even though I’m am looks horizontally straight.

A: As you noticed, the tip of your nose is a bit over-rotated (turned up) and the overall length of your nose is slightly short for your face.  The tip of your nose can be counter-rotated (turned down) and lengthened by adding grafts made from your own cartilage.
