Image size is small
show larger

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 elevated.

Questioner: What Kind of Results Should I Expect if I Have Rhinoplasty? (Appearance Wise and Pain, I'm Terrified!)
Hi, so as you can see my nose is too large for my face, and I have wanted to get it done for over 8 years, but fear and money have been holding me back. My family is not on board because they think I am body dysmorphic and do not need it. Of course I don't need it, but it is much larger than I would like, and I would look and feel much better if I were to get it done. Anyway, I just wanted some input as to what I should ask for in a consult, and also some honest feedback on how bad recovery is!
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Recovery is probably much easier than you are expecting
These photos show a nose that probably has some excess width at the tip, and maybe a profile view would show it's longer than you like, too.  The recovery depends very much on who performs the operation, but my patients are typically happy being seen in public right when the splint comes off, seven days after surgery. Almost nobody takes the pain medication I prescribe. See the attached link for a before-and-after morph of your nose. You should look at a surgeon's before and after photos when deciding whom to hire to perform your surgery. Rhinoplasty is not a commodity: every surgeon performs the operation with different levels of skill.
