I have very strong ethnic features except for my nose

Question:

I have very strong ethnic features except for my nose, which is quite plain. Is it possible to have a slight bump added to my nose to give it character?

Answer:

Answer:
It is possible to have a slight bump added to your nose to give it some character. However, in most situations patients actually have a slight bump removed leaving them with a strong non-operated-looking profile. The typical patient that we add is someone who has had previous surgery where just a little too much has been done to reduce the profile leaving them with what we refer to as a ‘saddle-type’ deformity. Either cartilage from the nose (septal cartilage) cartilage from the ears (conchal cartilage) or cartilage from the rib (autologous costal cartilage) are usually ideal choices to rebuild the nose. There are other various possibilities if the above is not available to rebuild back a slight bump to the nose. Naturally, this would be done in a way that leaves the patient looking natural with the nose somewhat fitting their face.
