How much hump was taken off of this nose?  The hump in the before picture appears very small, so that entailed only a small reduction.  But as the tip of the nose was deprojected, more hump had to be removed, to keep the dorsum from sticking out beyond the tip.

As you bring the tip of the nose back toward the face, you have to bring the dorsum back closer to the face, too.

Questioner: Why do I have to wait until I'm 18 years of age to have my nose fixed?
When I was about 10 or 12 I broke my nose in a car crash. I am 16 now and my nose is bent and my left nostril is blocked because of my nose bending towards the right because it's broken. I really want a doctor to just break it back or set it straight but when I went to hospital when I was 15, the doctors said I will have to wait until I am 18 to get it fixed. They said that my face is still developing so that's why they wont do it. Would it be possible if I could get it fixed at this age?
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Hmm. I think you're probably ready.
In my practice, most women aged 15 or older are ready for a rhinoplasty. We like to see that a woman is having regular periods and is about done getting taller. Then it's okay.
