Her face lift did a better-than-average job of tightening her cervical
angle. What's the cervical angle? Let's draw more lines.
Picture a line that ascends the skin along the front of her neck, and another
line that goes backward from her chin toward the front of her neck. The area where the
underside of her chin meets the front of her neck is a fairly distinct angle in the after
picture, whereas the skin makes a gentle curve from the chin to the front of the
neck in the before picture.
It's usually difficult to make the cervical angle this tight during a face
lift, because the cervical angle is the farthest
point from where the face lift incisions are made. But sometimes things just fall into place.
Different people will obtain different amounts of
improvement in the area of the cervical angle, even if the
operation is performed with technical skill every time.

Is rhinoplasty like this possible or doable?
I used a projection app to tweak how my side profile looked and I was wondering if in theory a rhinoplasty like the one in the picture could be performed? I've looked through rhinoplasty before and afters and I haven't found one quite like this.
(Questioner submitted photos)
Dr. Denenberg's answer: Deprojecting a tip is rather predictable, in the right hands.
Yes, deprojecting a tip is very possible. Before selecting a plastic surgeon, you need to see photos of other patients of his who have had successful tip deprojections. It's an advanced technique that not every plastic surgeon can accomplish. See the Web reference link for an example.
