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?

I am wanting Rhinoplasty as I hate the length of my nose and my wide bridge too! Any suggestions?
Is there anyway I can find out what would nose would suit my face etc - like having a video image first!?
(Questioner submitted photos)
Dr. Denenberg's answer: Your nose is strong in its forward projection
Image? Sure. Check out the Web reference link below. I made a morph of your profile.
I brought the tip of your nose substantially closer to your face, and elevated the tip, too: when the nose comes back closer to the face, it usually *looks* longer, and you have to raise the tip so it doesn't look too long after surgery.
Note, also, that I reduced your nose up where it begins, just beneath your eyebrows. It's important to address that area, so you don't look like a Roman statue after surgery.
These changes are all fairly predictable to accomplish, but only in truly expert hands. Be sure you see lots of a doctor's before and after photos before hiring someone to do your rhinoplasty.
