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

Are these enough qualifications for a Rhinoplasty surgeon?
I already met with dr (?) and feel comfortable to go with him to perform my rhinoplasty. I just want to make sure he has the right qualifications. â€śABMS MOCâ€ť Maintenance of Certifcation (MOC) by the American Board of Plastic Surgery Current Diplomat, American Board of Plastic Surgery Current Certification of Advanced Cosmetic Surgery Past Diplomat, American Board of Surgery

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Looking for these qualifications can get you in big trouble
There are lots of boards and groups that certify and evaluate surgeons who perform rhinoplasty.
But you want to know the *skill* of your doctor. The great majority of doctors who do rhinoplasty are mediocre at this operation, and the only way to tell the doctor's skill is to review his before and after photos. Board certification means almost nothing at all. Ignore the diplomas and look at the photos. See whether he has been able to accomplish for others precisely what you want for yourself.
If you find yourself looking for a revision operation later, having picked a doctor with the "right" qualifications this time will be very little comfort indeed.
