This patient is a perfect candidate for upper eyelid surgery for several
reasons. She has eyebrows that are nice and high (it's harder to get the
surgery right if the eyebrows are droopy). The excess skin on her upper
lids has caused a fold that hangs down on her lashes, preventing her from being
able to put eyeliner on her upper eyelids. And because of its excess, the
skin in her upper lids has become crinkly. Note the increased smoothness
of that crinkly upper eyelid skin in the after picture.

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.
