Let's try to evaluate the surgical changes from this frontal view.
You can see some of the changes from removing the hump: the before picture has
two parallel vertical white stripes along the dorsum of his nose.
Those stripes are the return from the flashes in my photo room. The
stripes give you a feel for the position of the dorsum and the presence of the
hump, and they are missing in the after picture.
Nasal length: in the after picture, we can see just a glimpse of his
nostrils. That glimpse is our indication that his nose was shortened,
because in the before picture, his somewhat droopy tip hung over and obscured
our view of the nostrils.
Actually, he has his head tilted down slightly in the before picture, but the
analysis is still valid. (You can tell that his head is tilted down a bit by
looking at his right eye and his right ear. In the after picture, his
right eye is at the level of the top of his ear. In the before picture,
his right eye sits below the level of the top of the ear.)

By looking at these photos of my nose do you think I would be a good candidate for a non surgical nose job?
And if so what has to be done is it possible to make it look smaller because I don't want it to look bigger then what it is
(Questioner submitted photos)
Dr. Denenberg's answer: Non-surgical nose job? Oh god, no.
A non-surgical nose job:
1) can **only** make a nose larger
2) is almost *never* a good idea.
I know there's lots of writing about non-surgical nose jobs out there, but really, 99.99999% of it should be ignored.
You have a hump and a tip that projects strongly forward from your face. Those features are correctable only with a surgical rhinoplasty.
Hope that helps!
