A hump like this draws your attention when you look at her face, keeping you
from seeing her other attractive features. In the after picture, the nose
blends in much better with her other facial features.
When you take a large hump off of a nose, it can make the nose look
longer, even if nothing was done to change the nasal length. For that
reason, it's important to make a small elevation of the position of the tip when
removing a large hump.

From a ridiculous extreme long/upward nose, to the other extreme ridiculous long/downward/wide nose
My 3d nose revision...devastated! (At same time: face, neck & lip lifts, fine!). See pre/post op photos plus 2 nose models I gave to surgeon as guidance. But nose is now much longer, wider, downward...Will it look like the nose models after swelling is gone? Doubt it. Wait a year to fix it? No! I’m desperate...Is there somewhere a competent surgeon who can do a shorter nose like my nose models? (I’m 87 but absolutely healthy). Thanks ever so much for your opinions!

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Your nose won't shorten as the swelling subsides
Sorry, but it's just vanishingly unlikely that your nose will shorten as the swelling subsides, and certainly it won't shorten to the length of the models' photographs that you submitted.
The good news is that, with correct techniques, it is possible to shorten a nose substantially, even in a revision procedure. The bad news is that you can't jump in and have that operation right away. It may not be necessary to wait an entire year, but the nose needs at least many months to heal first.
