She doesn't really have a ball on the end of her nose, even if that's the clich.  The cartilages that form the tip of her nose are wide, and they overlap each other, giving the impression of a ball.

A wide tip will appear to be a bulge on an oblique view of the nose.  If you put your finger on her nose where it begins, next to the inner corner of her left eye, and run your finger down the edge of her nose, your finger will have to bump out to your right as it follows the bulge around the tip of her nose in this view.  In the after picture, with a narrower tip, that bulge is gone, and your finger would trace a straight line from where her nose begins down to the tip.

Now clean off your computer screen.

Questioner: From a ridiculous extreme long/upward nose, to the other extreme ridiculous long/downward/wide nose
My 3d nose revision...devastated! (At same time: face, neck & lip lifts, fine!). See pre/post op photos plus 2 nose models I gave to surgeon as guidance. But nose is now much longer, wider, downward...Will it look like the nose models after swelling is gone? Doubt it. Wait a year to fix it? No! I’m desperate...Is there somewhere a competent surgeon who can do a shorter nose like my nose models? (I’m 87 but absolutely healthy). Thanks ever so much for your opinions!
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Your nose won't shorten as the swelling subsides
Hi,
Sorry, but it's just vanishingly unlikely that your nose will shorten as the swelling subsides, and certainly it won't shorten to the length of the models' photographs that you submitted.

The good news is that, with correct techniques, it is possible to shorten a nose substantially, even in a revision procedure. The bad news is that you can't jump in and have that operation right away. It may not be necessary to wait an entire year, but the nose needs at least many months to heal first.
