A nose that was shortened during surgery shows just a bit more nostril in the
after picture. On the tip of her nose, the white dots that represent the
reflections of the flashes are positioned higher above her nostrils in the after
photo than in the before.
The wide hump shows up in the before picture as two white flash return marks
in the middle of the dorsum. When the hump was smoothed out, the after
picture's dorsum doesn't have a protrusion or irregularity to catch the light,
so those white marks are gone.

Will Fixing Bulbous Tip Make the Nose Look Thinner?
I have a bulbous tip nose. I want to get my nose to have a normal tip but also want it to look thinner. If I get the bulbous tip fixed, will my nose automatically look skinnier?
(Questioner submitted photos)
Dr. Denenberg's answer: The tip and the bridge can be narrowed at the same time, but using different techniques
The work done during surgery to narrow the tip of the nose won't change the appearance of the upper part of the nose -- that part can also be narrowed, as a different part of the operation.
Careful, though, because narrowing a nasal tip is an advanced technique, and you should see before and after photos, before selecting your doctor, of other patients who specifically had their nasal tips narrowed. A profile view won't show that to you; it's the angled views, like the one you posted, that show the width of the tip.
