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 rhinoplasty fix my narrow and long nose?
How extensive of a procedure will it take to correct my nose? What options are there as far as shaping out there for me? What shape would compliment my facial structure?
(Questioner submitted photos)
Dr. Denenberg's answer: You are a somewhat typical candidate for a rhinoplasty
The operation wouldn't be more extensive than an "average" rhinoplasty, although I consider all rhinoplasties fairly "extensive."
I think most people, if they had your nose and were of a mind to change it, would consider lowering the bump on the bridge, narrowing the tip a small amount, elevating the tip up a small amount, and deprojecting the tip -- that is, bringing the entire nose back closer to your face.
