This nose was missing some of its middle section, along the dorsum.  I reconstructed it by placing an artificial material in the depression.

There are many materials that can be used successfully to build up part of the nose.  Some of the materials are natural (the patient's own bone or cartilage, stolen from another part of the body), and some are artificial.  I generally prefer the artificial materials, at least today, for several reasons.  One of the most important reasons is that a soft, artificial material can sit in the nose without showing a sharp edge or corner.  Smoother materials can make the nose look more natural.

Questioner: Would the Results I Desire Be Possible and Not Risky?
I feel my nose is simply out of place on my long face with my relatively deep set eyes and tiny lips. I would very much like a much finer and upward tip, generally finer nose and no dorsal hump what so ever. However, a surgeon would have to work with my nose and make the best of it, they can't simply give me a brand new one. Would the results I want as on the picture (excuse my crude photoshop-ing) be too tricky and risky?
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Your morphing is excellent, and your proposed changes are possible
Your proposed changes are certainly possible. See my "Web reference" link for a proposed change to your morph. I re-made it, taking down the small prominence that you left on your bridge just above the tip. That prominence should be taken down, as in my morph, to give the bridge a straighter appearance and make the tip look more delicate.

Be sure to see lots of before and after photos of the surgeon you pick, to make sure he has been able to accomplish for other people what you want for yourself.
