The term "projection" refers to how far a nose sticks out forward away from the face.  Over-projection was the main problem here, and the idea was to move the nose back closer to her face, "deprojecting" it, as we say.

At the same time, the hump was removed, and I elevated the tip of her nose just slightly.

Questioner: 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.
