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.)

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.
