You will be able to have more suitable recommendation once you provide us your photos as you are asked above.
 
 [Surgical description]
 * Open Rhinoplasty
 - Silicone implant ion
 Nose augmentation can make your nose higher which can help you to look more defined and sophisticated. Since you had a flat nose, silicone implant could be used to improve the height of your nose bridge. And an appropriate size of implant can be ed to make desirable height and the shape of the nose. A natural-looking shape is crafted with implants that are chosen based on the thickness of skin and the width of the bone. If the silicone implant on your bridge had not been placed in the middle of your nose proportionately, however, we can consider removing your old silicone and re- the right size and length of it in the middle of your nose bridge this time.
 
 - Septal cartilage graft
 Nose tip can be reshaped using your own cartilage to create a smooth and beautiful nose line. Usually, septal cartilage taken from the inside of your nose is used to make your nasal tip higher, for a more attractive appearance. This makes your nose more beautiful on the front and the side. Autologous cartilage is grafted in order to avoid redness or skin thinning on the tip. The slightly upturned tip makes the nose more attractive from the front and side. The implant is placed between the skin and cartilage. The appropriate implant material is ed to form the desirable nose shape. Autologous cartilage grafting is sometimes performed on the tip to keep the bridge and the tip in the balance.
 
 - Alar cartilage reserction
 Surgery for bulbous nasal tip is not simple however, it can be corrected by removing or relocating the dermis and fat tissue of nasal tip. Bulbous shape is mainly due to wide cartilages that are covered with excess fat. For such case, the shape of cartilage can be adjusted with removal of excess fat, and then the nasal tip will be reshaped using autologous cartilage or implants.
 
 When nasal alar cartilage is large, the top section of nasal alar cartilage that has been reduced to 5-8mm is tied with sutures. Autologous cartilage (septal cartilage or ear cartilage) can be used as the supporting structure to further refine the tip shape. When nasal alar cartilage is horizontally spread, both sides of widened nasal alar cartilage are trimmed and tied together causing the septal cartilage to be elevated.
 
 For thick subcutaneous fat in the nose tip, can be done with removing subcutaneous fat contracts skin and creates a sharper nose tip. Autologous cartilage grafting (septal cartilage or ear cartilage) is recommended if the tip is originally too low or a nasal bridge augmentation is to be performed as well.
 
 - Nostril base reduction
 Since you have wide or large nose wings, weir reduction surgery can be performed to reduce the size of nostrils to a desirable size. It is a relatively simple procedure with very effective results producing unnoticeable scars, since the incision is made under the nose wings.
 The surgery plan is determined by the width of nasal base, the length of nose wings and the size of nostrils. The weir reduction surgery can be performed with other nose surgeries to maximize the overall results.
 
 There are two cases for the weir reduction. For alar base reduction, wide nose wing is often a result of excessive skin or subcutaneous tissues. Alar base reduction involves excision of excessive skin at the base of nose wing, which reduces the size of nostrils. Excision scars, formed between the nostrils and cheeks, are nearly invisible after 2-3 months. For nostril fastening, nostrils that are wide at the bottom can be tightened with sutures after shallow resection has been made around the alar base. Scars are formed between the bottom of nose and philtrum, making it difficult to notice under the nose shadow.
 
 - Lateral & Medial Osteotomy
 Surgical procedure for narrowing the nasal bridge was used to be a part of corrective rhinoplasty for deviated or aquiline nose. Nowadays, however, this procedure is performed to make wide nose narrower. The standard width of nasal bridge is usually determined by lateral cartilages and shape of nasal bone. Each side of nasal bone is resected and then tied together to adjust the width of nasal bone.
 
 * Genioplasty with silicone implant ion
 Chin augmentation with silicone implant ion can improve your chin to obtain a proportionate image. This procedure is relatively simple.
 The surgery is performed through incisions made inside the mouth, and suture may not need to be removed as it can be dissolvable. You must wear elastic band tape on the surgical site for 2-3 days after the surgery to firm the implant placement and decrease swelling/bruising. After the surgery, liquid diet such as soup or porridge is mandatory for the first week, after that you may move on to soft diet. Avoid foods that are chewy or hard for about a month, since it will be hard to open your mouth after surgery. You must gargle thoroughly for 5 days after surgery and brush your teeth using a pediatric toothbrush. Numbness or bruising on surgical sites may disappear over time.
 
 * Filler injection on smile line(nasolabial folds)
 Fillers are effective materials that are used to smooth out unwanted facial wrinkles or creases. It is made from a number of different substances, including hyaluronic acid, calcium and collagen. The most commonly treated in the most of facial areas nasolabial folds, glabella lines, forehead, chin, nose, love band, lips, or etc. Unlike nasolabial folds and glabella line where the injection is used for the purpose of filling up the sunken, wrinkled or flat parts, filler can be done on the low band and lips to augment its flatness to be more volumized.
 
 [Recovery time]
  Regarding recovery period, you are recommended to stay in Korea for 7-9 days for Open Rhinoplasty and 5-7 days for Genioplasty with silicone implant ion so that you can get post-operative treatments including stitch removal and you are required to visit the hospital two or three times for post-treatments.
 
  Major swelling or bruising will gradually go away in about 1-2 weeks following the day of surgery. It is going to take about a month for minor swelling to subside. You will see the final result at least 6 months to a year after the surgery. However, the degree of swelling or bruising largely depends on personal cases and conditions.
