Along the dorsum, you can see parallel vertical white lines that are the reflections of the
flashes. The linear reflections are prominent, and a bit crooked; they softened and
straightened after the hump was removed.
Look at the tip of her nose. In the after picture, there are two white
dots, also reflections from the flashes. The white dots are small and symmetric, closer
together than in the before picture, more distinct than in the before picture,
and positioned higher above the nostrils than in the before picture. Those
findings are our indications that the tip of the nose was narrowed and elevated
during the operation. Also, we get to see just a little bit more of her
nostrils after surgery, another indication that the tip of the nose was

Is It Possible to Make a Nose Shorter and Less Bulbous with Rhinoplasty?
I have a long nose with a bump and a big tip which I would really like to correct. Is there a way to correct all of these problems at once?

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Your nose is more projecting than it is long
Hi. You have a nose that is strong in its forward projection away from the face. Lessening that strength is called "deprojecting" the nose.
"Length" is the measurement of the nose from where it begins between the eyes, down the bridge of the nose to the tip. So a nose with a droopy tip is "long," but Pinocchio had a "projecting" nose.
Deprojecting a nose involves complicated techniques on the tip cartilages, because it is those tip cartilages that hold the tip out away from your face. Be sure to see before and after photos of other patients whose noses were deprojected by the surgeon you are considering using, so you can see that he knows how to do this operation.
