Nose Woes - Tip Plasty/ Fillers?
I am considering having tip plasty/ fillers injected to fix an issue I am having with my nose from front on. Although my nose looks great from some angles and side on, from front on it looks.. wrong, somehow. But I have NO IDEA what the problem is. I just know it doesn't look right. Is my nose too long? Should it be shorter? Is the tip too wide? I came here to find out aesthetically what is incorrect, but I can't put my finger on it. Any suggestions and ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Your nose, overall really does look fine. I see what you are seeing, but it is a very minor contour issue. Your tip comes to a bit of a sharp point and your columnella is a bit prominent. I would certainly not recommend any kind of surgery - the risks would far outweigh the minor benefits. However, I think that your concerns could be addressed with a bit of filler in a couple of precise points in the tip. I would have to see you to know for sure, but that's what it looks like. Cheers.
