In the before picture, you can see some white marks in the middle of her
dorsum that are reflections from the flash, right where the hump was.
The marks are crooked, indicating that her nose was a little crooked
in that area before surgery. I mentioned in the section on nasal
reconstruction that correcting a crooked nose is one of the hardest changes to
make in rhinoplasty. However, if the crooked area is small, and if it's on the hump, sometimes
simply removing the hump removes the crookedness entirely.
We also know that her nose was shortened somewhat during her rhinoplasty,
because we get a better view of her nostrils in the after picture.

Who are the rhinoplasty revision specialists in the United States?
I need an ENT and facial plastic surgeon that specializes in rhinoplasty revisions. It doesn't seem like many are out there. Please refer me to some besides Cochran, Hilinski, and Frankel.
(Questioner submitted photos)
Dr. Denenberg's answer: They seem to be all over the place!
If you ask a surgeon to name the three greatest surgeons of all time, he'll have trouble thinking of the other two.
Key is to look at a doctor's before and after photos, and see if you like his results. See the Web reference link.
