Compared to Caucasian noses, Asian noses sit closer to the face in the upper part of the
dorsum, between the eyes. Asian faces have their own beauty, but the
occasional patient wants to see a dorsum that is higher, away from the face,
more like a European nose.
This nose was augmented with an artificial material placed along the dorsum
to hold it out away from the face. She also had a drooping tip, which was
elevated during surgery.

Can rhinoplasty fix my narrow and long nose?
How extensive of a procedure will it take to correct my nose? What options are there as far as shaping out there for me? What shape would compliment my facial structure?
(Questioner submitted photos)
Dr. Denenberg's answer: You are a somewhat typical candidate for a rhinoplasty
The operation wouldn't be more extensive than an "average" rhinoplasty, although I consider all rhinoplasties fairly "extensive."
I think most people, if they had your nose and were of a mind to change it, would consider lowering the bump on the bridge, narrowing the tip a small amount, elevating the tip up a small amount, and deprojecting the tip -- that is, bringing the entire nose back closer to your face.
