Check out this profile view: no indication of the problem of great excess width in the tip of the nose, even in the before photo.

This is why, when you see rhinoplasty before and after pictures in a magazine article, on the Web, or in a doctor's office, the photos will so often be like these: a direct profile shot of a nose that is already short enough, not too projecting, and all it needed was removal of a small hump.

Most plastic surgeons can get those changes right once in a while.  If you have a unique problem with the tip of your nose, you need to see photos showing correction of that type of problem in order to evaluate the plastic surgeon you are interviewing.

Questioner: Can This Bad Revision Rhinoplasty Be Fixed?
It was supposed be simple revision ( I know no such thing) of droopy tip from profile . Front was pretty good. After revision it became worst from every angle. Bridge became crocked, there is a bump from 3/4 view and worst of all tip became longer and pointy. It has been 3 years and I can't get used to this unfamiliar look it gave me. Am I looking for more disappointment with another surgery? Willing to travel Anywhere
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Your nose can likely be improved, much closer to your original goal.
Well, please tell everybody that if a doctor tells you that a revision will be "simple," you should run away at top speed. But going forward, one of your main complaints is that the nose is long, with the tip drooping. Even though we can't accomplish *everything* we want to in a revision, raising the tip of the nose is one of the more predictable changes, even in a revision, in competent hands. See my "Web reference" link for a morph showing your nose with the tip elevated.

The bump on the three-quarter view is caused by your nose being off center from the frontal view. Asymmetries like that are the most difficult features to correct in a revision, or even in a primary rhinoplasty. They can generally be improved, but not eliminated. The goal is to get a nose that you are happier with, more satisfied with, even if there are still some features that bug you or that you wish could be a little better.
