I am considering rhinoplasty but haven't seen examples or information on what to expect with someone of my nose-type.

I'm Caucasian with a small nose. The tip is refined and the front-view is pleasing. I am considering rhinoplasty to make my nose straighter as it has a hump and the top part is a bit round on the oblique view. Is this surgery easier and more cost-effective than a surgery that changes the nostril and does tip work? My first consult is tomorrow and I'd be glad to know what to expect. Many thanks!

It doesn't sound like that you have a very unusual nose. You didnt mention whether you had injury or have some breathiong problem. Correcting those issues could add some to the complexity. (more)
