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.

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.
(Questioner submitted photos)
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.
