Can Rhinoplasty Make My Nose Thinner?

Rhinoplasty can make a nose thinner depending on the nose. Every nose is different and each nose has different cartilage and skin. Rhinoplasty or nose job surgery can narrow the nasal bones with controlled fractures, can narrow the middle vault or cartilage in the center of the nose with stitches or sutures. It can also narrow the tip of the nose with cartilage reshaping, trimming, and suture/stitch techniques to narrow the cartilage. The nostrils can also be narrowed during rhinoplasty and nostril flare can be corrected. Lastly, thick nasal skin can be thinned or defatted during rhinoplasty to provide a thinner nose. Seek a rhinoplasty surgeon with experience to see if rhinoplasty can make a nose thinner.
