The frontal view is always the hardest to evaluate, but we'll try.  Look at the two white dots in the tip of the nose.  They are reflections from the flashes, just as there are two white dots in each of her eyes.  Now compare the position of those dots with the position of her nostrils in the before and after photos.  You'll find that the dots are higher in the after picture, indicating that I succeeded in elevating the tip of her nose.

It's harder to tell what was done to the dorsum from this view, but check out the two vertical parallel white stripes in the dorsum in her after picture.  They are more even and uniform than the stripes in her before picture, indicating that her dorsum was narrowed and straightened.  See what you can tell if you know what clues to look for?

Questioner: Can This Bad Revision Rhinoplasty Be Fixed?
It was supposed be simple revision ( I know no such thing) of droopy tip from profile . Front was pretty good. After revision it became worst from every angle. Bridge became crocked, there is a bump from 3/4 view and worst of all tip became longer and pointy. It has been 3 years and I can't get used to this unfamiliar look it gave me. Am I looking for more disappointment with another surgery? Willing to travel Anywhere

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Your nose can likely be improved, much closer to your original goal.
Well, please tell everybody that if a doctor tells you that a revision will be "simple," you should run away at top speed. But going forward, one of your main complaints is that the nose is long, with the tip drooping. Even though we can't accomplish *everything* we want to in a revision, raising the tip of the nose is one of the more predictable changes, even in a revision, in competent hands. See my "Web reference" link for a morph showing your nose with the tip elevated.

The bump on the three-quarter view is caused by your nose being off center from the frontal view. Asymmetries like that are the most difficult features to correct in a revision, or even in a primary rhinoplasty. They can generally be improved, but not eliminated. The goal is to get a nose that you are happier with, more satisfied with, even if there are still some features that bug you or that you wish could be a little better.
