It's time to get out your ruler and measure some angles. In the before
picture, an imaginary line drawn from the front of his chin through the front of
his lips to the middle of the base of his nose points far forward, away from his
face. That same line, from chin through lips to nose, is much more
vertical in the after picture. With a projecting nose and a weak chin,
the face seems to "point" toward the nose, making the nose appear even more

Can my nose tip be lifted and made smaller? I want a lip lift. too. Will it give me a good image?
(Questioner submitted photos)
Dr. Denenberg's answer: Nose: yes. Lip: no.
Hi. I agree that your nose, while certainly not terribly long, is at the longer end of a range of normal, and if your tastes run to shorter noses, a significant elevation of the tip is possible and fine. It also appears that you have strong cartilages in the tip of your nose, and some narrowing of those cartilages might be good, too.
Work on the tip cartilages often comprises advanced techniques that not every plastic surgeon can accomplish, so be sure to see before and after photos of the doctor's work before selecting a surgeon.
The lip lift: no, no, no! It would leave a visible scar at the bottom of your nose, and your lip already looks great! A lip lift is for someone with a ***much*** longer upper lip than yours!
