Estrogen and its Effects on Female Facial Appearance

Patient : Will taking estrogen or birth control make my bulbous nose thinner? I've already had 3 rhinoplasties that did nothing to the tip of my nose that has thick, fatty, oily skin?
Symptoms:  Bulbous, wide nose
Doctor :   Hello. Welcome to Ask The Doctor. No estrogen won't help in getting a thinner nose. There is no indication of using Es trogens for this purpose. They have a long list of adverse effects. So they should only be taken under medical supervision. Rhinoplasty can only help you in getting a desired shape of the nose but as you have already seen that these surgeries have their own limitations. I hope it helps. Stay Healthy.
