I am a 45 year old professional woman. I would describe my nose as bulbous and it takes over my entire face. I would like to have a nose job, but have some concerns. If my nose is greatly narrowed and the tip completely reshaped, wouldn’t that result in a lot of scar tissue that is visible? When changing the size and shape of a nose so drastically, does that involve going into the bone?
A bulbous nose is often that way because of thick skin, large cartilage or both. Yes, there may be more scar tissue if a lot of tissue is removed from the tip. However, often cartilage is added to created better structure. Changing the bony structure is a different issue. If you have a large hump deformity, it would be reduced. Often a bulbous nose will not have much of a hump issue, but it can. I would need to see your nose to better advise you.
