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.

Questioner: Am I a Good Candidate for These Rhinoplasty Procedures?
I would like to get cosmetic surgery to reduce my dorsal hump and possible Radix reduction. Would I be a good candidate for these procedures? Would I require additional refinements other than what I mentioned? Is closed Rhinoplasty an option? I am unhappy with the bump, and height of my nose. It is also very wide and causes difficulties when I want to wear glasses.
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Radix reduction is important in your nose
If the hump is removed, the radix must be taken down as well, or you nose would look too long, like a Roman statue's nose. Also, raising the tip would help, as well as bringing the entire nose back, closer to your face. See the link to see what these changes could do for your nose.
