Nose reshaping by a piercing?


My nose is bumpy and the tip is not pointy. If the tip was more pointy my nose would look straighter and make it look like there is less of a bump on the bridge. Is it possible to get some sort of hidden nose piecing so that it will constantly lift the tip to make it look straighter? Also my nostrils flare when I smile.


 No, there is no quick fix for nasal issues. t sounds like you need a Rhinoplasty. May I suggest you write down the three things you really do not like about your nose and take your concerns to one of the many members of the ASAPS. They are experts in Rhinoplasty Surgery.  Best,
