From the frontal view, you can tell that this nose was shortened by looking for the nostrils.  We want to see just a small glimpse of the nostrils from this view.  That glimpse tells us that the nose is attractively short.  In the before picture above left, you can't see her nostrils at all, whereas in the after view, you do get just a small peek at the nostrils.

The rhinoplasty surgery tutorial contains an illustrated explanation of the relationship between the length of the nose and the view of the nostrils from the front (the surgery tutorials contain explicit photographs taken during surgery).

Questioner: Can my nose be fixed? Will I need additional surgeries to create a balance?
I'm 38 and I've hated my nose for as long as I can remember. To make matters worse, I broke it a year and a half ago and have gained breathing issues on the left side, a sway, a hump, and it seems like an all over thickness. I feel like my features give me a masculine appearance. Can my face be fixed? Will I need to have a chin reduction to create a ballance if I have rhinoplasty? What do you suggest? Cost?
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: From the photos, you seem to be a good candidate for a rhinoplasty
See the video link -- I made a modification of one of your images, simulating the changes that can be possible with an expertly-performed rhinoplasty. I elevated the tip of your nose, brought the tip and the entire nose back closer to the face ("deprojecting" it), took down the bump. Your nose is very string where it starts, below your eyebrows, and I believe it would be mandatory to reduce the strength of your nose up there, rather than just taking down the bump, or it wouldn't look right after surgery.

Breathing issues can almost always be addressed at the same time as changing the appearance of the nose.

I don't think you need a chin reduction. Your chin looks great, and chin reductions are very very unpredictable anyway. I think they are best reserved for someone who needs a very large change in the chin size, not something subtle or theoretical.
