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.

By looking at these photos of my nose do you think I would be a good candidate for a non surgical nose job?
And if so what has to be done is it possible to make it look smaller because I don't want it to look bigger then what it is
(Questioner submitted photos)
Dr. Denenberg's answer: Non-surgical nose job? Oh god, no.
A non-surgical nose job:
1) can **only** make a nose larger
2) is almost *never* a good idea.
I know there's lots of writing about non-surgical nose jobs out there, but really, 99.99999% of it should be ignored.
You have a hump and a tip that projects strongly forward from your face. Those features are correctable only with a surgical rhinoplasty.
Hope that helps!
