The frontal view shows us that the nose was shortened a bit as well. We
can see a touch more of her nostrils in the after view. She also has a subtle
finding in the tip of her nose. The two white dots on the tip, which are
the reflections of the flash, are rounder in the after picture, and more oblong
in the before picture. That change often happens when strong tip
cartilages with strong curves are made less prominent during surgery, creating a smaller,

Is it possible to change just the tip of my nose?
Is it possible to change just the tip of my nose without touching the bridge ? I don't want to get a small nose cause I know it won't suit my face. Thank you.

Dr. Denenberg's answer: It *is* possible to change just the tip, but ...
... when you change the tip of the nose, you also change how the rest of the nose looks, adjacent to the new tip, and often there are some adjustments to the rest of the nose that also make sense.
For example, the modification that I made in the video link below shows elevating and narrowing the tip of your nose. It's still strong in its forward projection from your face, but I reduced the strength of the bridge of the nose just a little bit, to match the tip.
It's the rare nose where you can work only, only on the tip, and still get an excellent result.
That make sense?
