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: What Can Be Done to Improve my Nose ?
I have always hated my nose, im a very pretty girl and my nose just takes away from it. My nose is uneven, there's a dent right in the middle of the tip of my nose and I don't remember when it got there or how but I didn't have it last year. And i hate my projection. I want my nose to be in line with my lips, Can you please tell me what can be done to correct this news of a nose ? What expectations are realistic ?
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Narrow the tip, deproject (slightly), fill in the dent
It seems to me that one of the main issues of your nose is the width of the tip. That's related, of course, to the strength of the two cartilages that form your tip, and the space between those two cartilages can show up as a dent if the cartilages are strong. See my "Web reference" link for a morph and an animation showing how your nose might look after surgery.

In the morph, I also brought the tip of your nose back toward your face. You didn't provide an exact profile view, which view shows the projection best, but from the three-quarter, it seems that some of the strength of projection might be related to the width of the tip, which can *look* like excess projection on that three-quarter view. I think the morph might make that clearer.

When looking for a plastic surgeon, you need to see before and after photos of tip work, because that's the hardest part of the operation. At least I think so!
