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

I am wanting Rhinoplasty as I hate the length of my nose and my wide bridge too! Any suggestions?
Is there anyway I can find out what would nose would suit my face etc - like having a video image first!?

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Your nose is strong in its forward projection
Image? Sure. Check out the Web reference link below. I made a morph of your profile.
I brought the tip of your nose substantially closer to your face, and elevated the tip, too: when the nose comes back closer to the face, it usually *looks* longer, and you have to raise the tip so it doesn't look too long after surgery.
Note, also, that I reduced your nose up where it begins, just beneath your eyebrows. It's important to address that area, so you don't look like a Roman statue after surgery.
These changes are all fairly predictable to accomplish, but only in truly expert hands. Be sure you see lots of a doctor's before and after photos before hiring someone to do your rhinoplasty.
