In this frontal view, we can see that the nose was shortened because the after picture shows some of the patients nostrils, invisible in the before picture.  In a frontal view, a long, drooping tip will cover the nostrils.

Also, look at the two white dots on the tip of her nose.  The white dots are created by the flashes reflecting off of her tip cartilages.  The dots are about at the level of her nostrils in the before picture, and they're well above the level of the nostrils in the after picture.

Finally, if you look carefully at the lower edge of the tip of her nose, you'll see that I narrowed her tip and filled in a little dent that existed between her two tip cartilages.

Questioner: Is It Worth Getting my Rhinoplasty? Because I Think my Front Looks Good.
how should it change?
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Often the frontal view changes little in a rhinoplasty
When most of your complaints result from a strong profile view, it's possible to improve that profile while making only tiny changes to the frontal view. See my "Web reference" link for a morph showing how your profile could be changed and some other important info. I brought the tip of your nose back closer to your face, took down the hump, and raised the tip a small amount.

These changes would only affect the frontal view by perhaps having the nose not droop down over your lip quite so much. It makes sense: you can't really tell from the frontal view how big someone's hump is, so it's the profile view that changes more.
