This patient's improvement was not the result of a face lift at all: she only
had a liposuction under the chin. Liposuction cannot be performed as the
only procedure unless the skin is young and elastic enough to
"shrink-wrap" to the contour of the neck after the excess fat under
the skin is
In a person who has lived long enough to lose skin elasticity, the skin would
just hang down unattractively if the fat were removed without using a face lift
to tighten the skin at the same time.

Is rhinoplasty like this possible or doable?
I used a projection app to tweak how my side profile looked and I was wondering if in theory a rhinoplasty like the one in the picture could be performed? I've looked through rhinoplasty before and afters and I haven't found one quite like this.

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Deprojecting a tip is rather predictable, in the right hands.
Yes, deprojecting a tip is very possible. Before selecting a plastic surgeon, you need to see photos of other patients of his who have had successful tip deprojections. It's an advanced technique that not every plastic surgeon can accomplish. See the Web reference link for an example.
