These are before and after nose surgery pictures of an African American woman from Santa Monica who had nose implant surgery in order to raise her bridge. Her rhinoplasty also included narrowing of her nasal tip and making her nostrils smaller. She said that she was always hesitated to smile because it made her nose “spread out and wide”.
During her facial plastic surgery consultation, Dr. Younai reviewed with her different options for nasal implants including using her own nasal cartilage. Because her nasal cartilage was insufficient for grafting and that she did not want to use her ear cartilage, she decided to have a silicone nose implant. She did well after surgery and liked her new smaller and more fine nose.
