How to improve your big nose shape at home

Many women have been spreading words about ways to improve the shape of the nose. These are some of the most highly recommended ones.

With makeup

Improving the big nose shape with makeup is used by many as it can enhance their beauty significantly. However, this method is only temporary as the nose shape will return to normal after removing the makeup.

Normally, women will use powder to hide the parts where the nose contours overexpand. Next, they use the highlighter to make the noses look higher and slimmer.

Cover the nose with glasses

In addition to doing makeup to make the nose smaller, you can also use sunglasses. This item can conceal some flaws of the big nose, helping you to be more confident in yourself.

If you wish to make your nose smaller permanently, cosmetic surgery is required. A cosmetic surgeon will diagnose the condition of the nose before proposing a suitable nose shape.

Nose tip reduction

A cosmetic surgeon will first determine the exact reason that makes the nose tip bigger to decide the appropriate technique of nose tip reduction.

  • The tip of the nose has soft and spread tissues: slim down the enlarged tip of the nose with a specialized cutting technique.
  • Loose nasal septum: A part of the nasal septum will be cut and the septum will be rebuilt so that the nose tip is small and elevated.

Alar base reduction

Alar base reduction has 2 techniques that can be applied in case the wings of the nose need to be reduced.

  • Hide the base: The cosmetic surgeons will measure and create 1 incision on the two bases each. After that, they will put the base inward to make the nose appear smaller. This process is suitable for noses with thin and narrow base skin.
  • Cut the base: In case the alar base skin is too thick and the nostrils are too wide, the cosmetic surgeons will create tiny incisions at the foot of the base (to ensure that nose scars will be left), to remove a part of the skin and the cartilage to narrow down the nose.
