This view is called the base view. The shape of her nose in the before
picture is not unexpected, considering that we already knew that the tip of her
nose sat too close to her face. The nostrils are pushed outward.
After I increased the nose's projection and narrowed the tip, the nostrils
moved into a more natural position and shape.

Is rhinoplasty like this possible or doable?
I used a projection app to tweak how my side profile looked and I was wondering if in theory a rhinoplasty like the one in the picture could be performed? I've looked through rhinoplasty before and afters and I haven't found one quite like this.
(Questioner submitted photos)
Dr. Denenberg's answer: Deprojecting a tip is rather predictable, in the right hands.
Yes, deprojecting a tip is very possible. Before selecting a plastic surgeon, you need to see photos of other patients of his who have had successful tip deprojections. It's an advanced technique that not every plastic surgeon can accomplish. See the Web reference link for an example.
