Is This Rhinoplasty Result Possible?

Q: Dr. Eppley, The first picture is how I want my nose and the pictures below is my current nose. Is this rhinoplasty result possible?

A: Such a result may or may not the completely possible. It is important to know that no matter what is done to the bone and cartilage support of the nose, how well it will show through depends on the thickness of the skin and how well it shrinks down to the smaller reshaped support. Given your thicker nasal skin such a result as you have imaged but not completely occur. The more realistic outcome is halfway between where you are now and your ideal imaged reshaped nose.
