Is it possible to have surgery to get a more “Asian looking” nose?

Q: I am looking to make my nose wider and flatter. I am Eurasian but I have completely Caucasian nose – very high nose bridge and I hate it. I am looking to widen the lower part of my nose and have flat nose bridge like stereotypical Asian nose… Would this be possible?

A: While it is possible reshape the nose in a number of ways during rhinoplasty, my goal as a facial plastic surgeon is to make each and every one of my patients more attractive.  If I feel a procedure will make my patient less attractive, I will strongly advise against it.
