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

Drooping tip, cave man like nose after rhinoplasty. Can this be fixed?
Droopy tip. rhinoplasty almost a year ago. Before surgery my smile was my best feature , now worst. I don't look normal when I smile as you can see in pictures it does not look right.When I smile the tip is pointy and cartilidge shows in certain lighting and it droops down like there's no support in the tip.My bridge also looks wider. My dr said he would make it thinner but hasn't .I feel so ugly , can this be fixed ? I'm a petite girl and should have a petite nose not a cave man looking nose.

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Your nose needs to be shortened substantially
Despite what you might hear, shortening a nose -- raising the tip up -- often involves advanced work on the tip cartilages, and every plastic surgeon is not able to make those changes. Things get harder during a revision, but in expert hands, elevating the tip of the nose is one of the most predictable changes to make. See the attached video and Web reference link for examples of what can be done.
You must be certain to see before and after revision rhinoplasty photos of any doctor you are considering for your revision. You absolutely don't want to be in the position of having had two operations, and still a too-long nose.
