yes, that looks realistic to undertake. i typically use thin gore-tex for the bridge because it is thin enough to look natural. i don't like ribs because they are too thick even shaved down to look good on the bridge and also too firm for my taste. the tip can be reshaped without any implants. let me know what else i can do to answer your questions. look forward to take care of you when you are ready. i know it is a big commitment given the distance.

I want to make my nose look stronger, more masculine. I did some Photoshops myself. Not too professional, but you can see the idea (original - left, photoshop - right). The last picture is taken with a bad phone cam, but you can see nose shape from below.
I wonder how realistic this is for me and how safe it is? I would opt for using grafts from my own body (rib cartilage/nose cartilage?).
I would love to hear professional and honest opinion from Dr. Lam. Also would like to hear what would be the cost of surgery and how long it would take. I live in another continent, so I will have to travel.
