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.

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.
