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.

Can my nose tip be lifted and made smaller? I want a lip lift. too. Will it give me a good image?
(Questioner submitted photos)
Dr. Denenberg's answer: Nose: yes. Lip: no.
Hi. I agree that your nose, while certainly not terribly long, is at the longer end of a range of normal, and if your tastes run to shorter noses, a significant elevation of the tip is possible and fine. It also appears that you have strong cartilages in the tip of your nose, and some narrowing of those cartilages might be good, too.
Work on the tip cartilages often comprises advanced techniques that not every plastic surgeon can accomplish, so be sure to see before and after photos of the doctor's work before selecting a surgeon.
The lip lift: no, no, no! It would leave a visible scar at the bottom of your nose, and your lip already looks great! A lip lift is for someone with a ***much*** longer upper lip than yours!
