She has a nice strong chin, which draws your attention away from the strength
of the nose's projection. Projection is one of the features of the
nose that we can measure numerically, unlike most of the changes that have to do
with words describing shapes or curves. Her nose was
deprojected by almost seven millimeters, more than one-fourth of an inch.
Compare her upper lip in the two photos. A projecting nose will cause
the upper lip to pull forward onto the bottom of the nose. In the after
picture, her upper lip has a more normal position because the nose is no longer
projecting out too far; it's not yanking the upper lip forward anymore.

Is it possible to change just the tip of my nose?
Is it possible to change just the tip of my nose without touching the bridge ? I don't want to get a small nose cause I know it won't suit my face. Thank you.
(Questioner submitted photos)
Dr. Denenberg's answer: It *is* possible to change just the tip, but ...
... when you change the tip of the nose, you also change how the rest of the nose looks, adjacent to the new tip, and often there are some adjustments to the rest of the nose that also make sense.
For example, the modification that I made in the video link below shows elevating and narrowing the tip of your nose. It's still strong in its forward projection from your face, but I reduced the strength of the bridge of the nose just a little bit, to match the tip.
It's the rare nose where you can work only, only on the tip, and still get an excellent result.
That make sense?
