She doesn't really have a ball on the end of her nose, even if that's the cliché.  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: Is it possible to change just the tip of my nose?
Is it possible to change just the tip of my nose without touching the bridge ? I don't want to get a small nose cause I know it won't suit my face. Thank you.
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: It *is* possible to change just the tip, but ...
... when you change the tip of the nose, you also change how the rest of the nose looks, adjacent to the new tip, and often there are some adjustments to the rest of the nose that also make sense.

For example, the modification that I made in the video link below shows elevating and narrowing the tip of your nose. It's still strong in its forward projection from your face, but I reduced the strength of the bridge of the nose just a little bit, to match the tip.

It's the rare nose where you can work only, only on the tip, and still get an excellent result.

That make sense?
