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.

How Can I Avoid a Bad Rhinoplasty?
Hello everybody, I'm thinking about going ahead with rhinoplasty but i have certain fears about the results. I found a girl with a nose and face shape almost identical to mine and to be honest i really think the results of this rhinoplasty are awful, so much so that I'm pretty apprehensive, my desire was to have a nose/shape that resembles the 2 illustrations. Could you tell me what sort of results i could gain from a nose like mine?

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Please post your photographs
In selecting a rhinoplasty surgeon, you must see his before and after photos, of noses of your type. You need to see that he has succeeded in doing for someone else, what you want for yourself. If you post your photos, I can give you an idea of the types of techniques needed, what to look out for, what to be certain you communicate to your surgeon.
