The base view can also demonstrate that the nose was deprojected.
When a nose is brought back closer to the face, the distance from the tip of the
nose back to where the nose attaches to the upper lip decreases, decreasing the
height of this triangular base view.
As the tip comes closer to the face, the nostrils widen out a touch. If
they seem as though they will widen excessively, I use a nostril-narrowing
procedure during the rhinoplasty to keep them from bulging out too far.

Is my Nose Way Too Big? Should I Consider Rhinoplasty?
I've always hated my nose. I've never seen another person with a similar nose as mine. I feel its way too big. Should I consider a rhinoplasty :\?
(Questioner submitted photos)
Dr. Denenberg's answer: A wide nose like yours can usually be improved with a rhinoplasty.
From this one photo at least, it does appear that you would be a good candidate for a rhinoplasty. You seem to have strong cartilages that make your nose perhaps wider than average. Your nasal bones, in the upper half of your nose, are also wide apart, and could be brought closer together during the operation. I don’t see a profile view, but it also seems that your nose is long, from where it starts between your eyes down to your tip, and perhaps your profile view could be improved by elevating the tip of the nose at the same time as making the other changes.
