This nasal hump is of slightly more than average size.  I had a patient several years ago who had an extremely large hump removed.  When I saw her three weeks after surgery, she told me that she had reached up to scratch an itch in the middle of her dorsum, but she missed, and wound up scratching air, because she positioned her finger where she thought the nose should be to get at an itch right on the hump.  She had to get used to finding her new nose with her fingers.

Questioner: Can my nose tip be lifted and made smaller? I want a lip lift. too. Will it give me a good image?
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Nose: yes. Lip: no.
Hi. I agree that your nose, while certainly not terribly long, is at the longer end of a range of normal, and if your tastes run to shorter noses, a significant elevation of the tip is possible and fine. It also appears that you have strong cartilages in the tip of your nose, and some narrowing of those cartilages might be good, too.

Work on the tip cartilages often comprises advanced techniques that not every plastic surgeon can accomplish, so be sure to see before and after photos of the doctor's work before selecting a surgeon.

The lip lift: no, no, no! It would leave a visible scar at the bottom of your nose, and your lip already looks great!  A lip lift is for someone with a ***much*** longer upper lip than yours!
