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: How Do You Fix a Nose with a Bulbous Tip?
How exactly is excess tissue removed from the tip of the nose?
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: By modifying the cartilages in the tip, not so much by removing them!
Hi,
The tip cartilages are very thin, but they are arched, and if the arches are wider, then then the tip will look wider. There are various ways to change the position and shape of the cartilages to narrow the tip.

The Web reference link below goes to the first page of an essay I wrote on narrowing the tip of the nose. Careful, though, because there are photos taken during surgery, although not on the very first page of the essay.
