This young woman's nose appeared to sit too close to her face.  She had inadequate projection.  The goal of her operation was to bring the tip of her nose farther out from her face.

Her nose has some of the appearance of a cleft lip nose, but her lip is perfect: she was injured in a jungle gym accident.  The nose is reminiscent of a cleft lip nose because persons with that congenital deformity often have an associated deformity of the nasal tip cartilages that causes the tip of the nose to sit too close to the face.

The rhinoplasty surgery tutorial contains a chapter that discusses the importance of tip projection and how it is maintained or created surgically (the surgery tutorials contain explicit photographs taken during surgery).

Questioner: Would I be a good candidate for rhinoplasty?
If so, would it be a complicated procedure? What kind of improvement is reasonable to expect? Apologies for the radiator in the background.
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Yes, of course you're a good candidate
If I were able to demonstrate on a computer the kinds of change that I would recommend for your nose, I would lower the hump, and bring the entire nose, including the tip, back closer to your face.

Making those changes would make the nose look longer, though, so we'd raise the tip of your nose, so the nose doesn't look too long after surgery. 

It's hard to make changes, however, on photos this small. If you post larger photos, it'd be possible.

And yes, it would be a complicated procedure, because of the myriad changes that are on the list of things to do.
