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: Is It Worth Getting my Rhinoplasty? Because I Think my Front Looks Good.
how should it change?
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Often the frontal view changes little in a rhinoplasty
When most of your complaints result from a strong profile view, it's possible to improve that profile while making only tiny changes to the frontal view. See my "Web reference" link for a morph showing how your profile could be changed and some other important info. I brought the tip of your nose back closer to your face, took down the hump, and raised the tip a small amount.

These changes would only affect the frontal view by perhaps having the nose not droop down over your lip quite so much. It makes sense: you can't really tell from the frontal view how big someone's hump is, so it's the profile view that changes more.
