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: I Want to Get the Bump Removed from my Nose, but Would I Need to Reconstruct the Tip of my Nose As Well?
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Working on the tip would allow your nose to get shorter and closer to your face
Hi. While the hump is the most prominent feature on your nose, if it is removed and nothing else is done, you probably would feel that your nose is still too large. 

When a hump is taken off of the nose, the nose often looks longer, and your nose starts out sort of long-ish anyway. In the morph, besides lowering your hump, I also shortened your nose by raising the tip, and I brought the tip of the nose back closer to your face. 

It's not a bad thing to work on the tip. In fact, it's rare to find a nose that *only* requires work on the hump. Still, work on the tip comprises the most advanced techniques in rhinoplasty, so you must insist on seeing before and after photos of your doctor's patients who had their tips elevated or brought closer to the face, so you can see that he was able to achieve for someone else exactly what you want for yourself.
