The bones and cartilage in the nose don't actually grow with time, but the cartilages that form the
tip of the nose release their grip on the upper regions of the nose and pull
down and away with gravity. That movement lowers the position of the tip,
making the nose look longer, and thus bigger. Changes in the skin can
also make a nose appear bigger.
She also had a mild convexity of a hump along
the dorsum of her nose.
You can see that the jowl, the droop of skin between her ear and her chin,
was pulled tighter.

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.
