How short should a nose be? The factors we consider are the patient's
age, sex, height, preferences, as well as some more subtle considerations,
including the nose's vertical height, the length of the upper lip, the thickness of the
skin, and other factors.
If you don't mind looking at photos that were taken during surgery, the
surgery tutorials on rhinoplasty contain a discussion
of how to decide the final length of the nose.

How Can I Avoid a Bad Rhinoplasty?
Hello everybody, I'm thinking about going ahead with rhinoplasty but i have certain fears about the results. I found a girl with a nose and face shape almost identical to mine and to be honest i really think the results of this rhinoplasty are awful, so much so that I'm pretty apprehensive, my desire was to have a nose/shape that resembles the 2 illustrations. Could you tell me what sort of results i could gain from a nose like mine?

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Please post your photographs
In selecting a rhinoplasty surgeon, you must see his before and after photos, of noses of your type. You need to see that he has succeeded in doing for someone else, what you want for yourself. If you post your photos, I can give you an idea of the types of techniques needed, what to look out for, what to be certain you communicate to your surgeon.
