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.

I am wanting Rhinoplasty as I hate the length of my nose and my wide bridge too! Any suggestions?
Is there anyway I can find out what would nose would suit my face etc - like having a video image first!?

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Your nose is strong in its forward projection
Image? Sure. Check out the Web reference link below. I made a morph of your profile.
I brought the tip of your nose substantially closer to your face, and elevated the tip, too: when the nose comes back closer to the face, it usually *looks* longer, and you have to raise the tip so it doesn't look too long after surgery.
Note, also, that I reduced your nose up where it begins, just beneath your eyebrows. It's important to address that area, so you don't look like a Roman statue after surgery.
These changes are all fairly predictable to accomplish, but only in truly expert hands. Be sure you see lots of a doctor's before and after photos before hiring someone to do your rhinoplasty.
