What Is Wrong With My Face Besides My Big Nose?
Q: Dr. Eppley, there is something wrong with my face but I can’t figure it out. I used to think it was all because of my nose which is big but I think it is more than that. There is some other part of my face that just isn’t right that makes me look unbalanced or disproportionate. I have attached some pictures for your insights and recommendations.
A: Thank you for sending your pictures. What I see about your facial proportions are two things:
1) A nose that is very broad at the tip and middle 1/3 and a bridge/dorsal line that is low.
2) A forehead that is narrow and very flat.
Ideally a rhinoplasty with tip narrowing and dorsal line augmentation would make the nose more proportionate. Also a forehead augmentation to give it greater convexity from the brows up to the hairline would also be an aesthetic addition.
