The irregularity in her nose makes it look too short in the before
picture. By building up the nose, it appears to have a more substantial
length, even though I didn't change the position of the tip. This is an
interesting illusion relating the apparent length of the nose to the height of
the dorsum: the higher the dorsum sits, the longer the nose appears to be.
Similarly, if a patient has a long nose that I can't get quite as short as I
would like, carving down the dorsum a teeny bit more can make the nose look a
teeny bit shorter.

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Feminize my Face
Hi Louise. Rhinoplasty may be one option. A "smaller", "thinner" nose may be considered more feminine.
