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).

How Do You Fix a Nose with a Bulbous Tip?
How exactly is excess tissue removed from the tip of the nose?
(Questioner submitted photos)
Dr. Denenberg's answer: By modifying the cartilages in the tip, not so much by removing them!
The tip cartilages are very thin, but they are arched, and if the arches are wider, then then the tip will look wider. There are various ways to change the position and shape of the cartilages to narrow the tip.
The Web reference link below goes to the first page of an essay I wrote on narrowing the tip of the nose. Careful, though, because there are photos taken during surgery, although not on the very first page of the essay.
