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: Which Nose Looks More Suitable on Me? I'm So Stressed. I've Been to 5 Consultations
So the nose one the right a girl on realself morphed that for me. While the other one my PS morphed. I feel like the PS morph makes my nose still stick out. The other one is cute and fits my face. Maybe I'm wrong. Help me pls
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: When you decrease the projection of the nose, you usually should elevate the tip!
I like the morph on the right, too. It looks like the RealSelf participant elevated the tip of your nose a small amount when she adjusted the position of the tip. When the tip of the nose comes back toward the face, it can make the nose look longer, so the nose can look more natural or pleasing if the tip is elevated.

We didn't see the "before" photo, but if you are concerned about the amount that the nose is brought back toward the face, you need to take special care to see before and after photos from your prospective doctors showing noses that were changed in that same fashion. Adjusting the projection of the tip is an advanced technique; many of the revision operations I perform are aimed at correcting an inadequate amount of change in projection of the tip from the first operation.
