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?

Is rhinoplasty like this possible or doable?
I used a projection app to tweak how my side profile looked and I was wondering if in theory a rhinoplasty like the one in the picture could be performed? I've looked through rhinoplasty before and afters and I haven't found one quite like this.
(Questioner submitted photos)
Dr. Denenberg's answer: Deprojecting a tip is rather predictable, in the right hands.
Yes, deprojecting a tip is very possible. Before selecting a plastic surgeon, you need to see photos of other patients of his who have had successful tip deprojections. It's an advanced technique that not every plastic surgeon can accomplish. See the Web reference link for an example.
