When the oblique views of a nose show a hump in the middle of the dorsum,
it usually means that the nose is wide in that area. Her nose was narrowed
in its bony part, which is the upper half of the nose. Narrowing the bones
of the nose allows us to
see a nice straight dorsum from this oblique view.
This is also a good
view to see the columellar show and the strength of the tip cartilages.

Can my nose tip be lifted and made smaller? I want a lip lift. too. Will it give me a good image?
(Questioner submitted photos)
Dr. Denenberg's answer: Nose: yes. Lip: no.
Hi. I agree that your nose, while certainly not terribly long, is at the longer end of a range of normal, and if your tastes run to shorter noses, a significant elevation of the tip is possible and fine. It also appears that you have strong cartilages in the tip of your nose, and some narrowing of those cartilages might be good, too.
Work on the tip cartilages often comprises advanced techniques that not every plastic surgeon can accomplish, so be sure to see before and after photos of the doctor's work before selecting a surgeon.
The lip lift: no, no, no! It would leave a visible scar at the bottom of your nose, and your lip already looks great! A lip lift is for someone with a ***much*** longer upper lip than yours!
