Can I Reduce The Length Of My Nose?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I have a problem with the length of my nose. The length of my nose takes a large part on my midface. Is it possilble to reduce the wings of the nose and the tip? My wish is to get a reduction of the length of my nose from the eyes to the tip of the nose. I send you a picture where you can See the Red mark that should be reduce. Thank you for your time and help.

A: The only way to shorten a nose by rotating the tip upward…not excising any of the actual tip skin. While I think this would help a little bit, it would probably not be to the degree of change that you seek.
