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: Am I a Rhinoplasty Candidate with My Wide, Bulbous Tip?
I have always hated the tip of my nose. The bridge is a little wide and has a bit of a bump, but I would be satisfied with just a reduction in the tip. It's very wide and bulbous. It looks fine from the profile view, but front on it's very.. unattractive. Is there a way to have it reduced without too drastic of a change? I do not want a narrow, pinched look. It also tends to swell in cold, heat, or with allergies. Are there nonsurgical options too?
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Yes, a rhinoplasty should help with your wide tip
I agree that the bridge is a little wide, too, but mainly work on the tip cartilages could help achieve your goals of narrowing the tip. 

Be sure to discuss all of the details that you care about with your surgeon, and be sure to see before and after photos of his other patients, specifically patients who have had correction of wide tips.

Note that a profile before-and-after, where perhaps you see a hump removed, doesn't tell you anything about how the surgeon handled a wide tip: it's the three-quarter, or oblique, views, that shows you whether a tip has been narrowed.
