You probably know at least one person (if not half a dozen) who opted to get their nose done and still sings the praise of the surgery and their surgeon. There’s no denying the power that rhinoplasty holds. By transforming one feature on your face, it can also transform your entire face and eliminate everything you’ve always hated about your nose to make, well in a word, perfect.

But not everyone is game for a nose job, nor is everyone a candidate. And, for those who want to make their nose look smaller, less humpy or bumpy, or even lift the tip, there are some tricks of the trade that can be used to make your nose look better. Full disclosure: In no way, shape or form do these secrets work the same as rhinoplasty nor do they offer long-term, permanent results like surgery can, but they do a really good job.
