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,

Am I a candidate for a Tiplasty?
My nose is currently in the pic above i would like it to look like the picture below it....what would require to be achieved? From research i have done i would think it would be a tip rotation and trim....if so...does this procedure require anethesea /would it be cheaper??? Thanks :)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: I think you're right: upward rotation of the tip is the goal
When you are looking for a surgeon, be sure to see before and after photos of patients who have had a successful and substantial upward rotation of the tip. Many of the revision operations that I perform are on patients who needed rotation but didn't get it in their first operation. It's a change that every plastic surgeon cannot accomplish.
