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: Am I a candidate for non surgical rhinoplasty?
So I've been considering rhinoplasty, but I am much more in favor of a non invasive non surgical procedure. I was wondering if I would be a candidate and benefit for a nonsurigical nose job
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Nope, nope, nope. No non-surgical rhinoplasty for you
Hi,
I'll throw my hat in the ring with the other physician posters who said not to have a non-surgical rhinoplasty.

Understanding non-surgical rhinoplasty is easy. Stuff is injected into the nose; the nose looks bigger. If you want your nose to look smaller, non-surgical rhinoplasty is the wrong approach.

In fact, non-surgical rhinoplasty is reasonable only in the very very rarest of cases -- usually after previous surgery, when a persistent dent that cannot be further corrected with surgery can be lifted with a tiny, tiny amount of filler, like 1/100 of a cc or so. It's a way to salvage a minuscule improvement when further surgery is not a good idea.

Also, in general, you shouldn't have a non-surgical rhinoplasty from a doctor who does not regularly do *standard* rhinoplasty. If the doctor *only* does *non-surgical* rhinoplasties, then he likely will recommend one to you when I wouldn't think it reasonable.
