Okay, what can we see from this view?  Her nostrils appear to be about the same, so we didn't change the length of her nose significantly.  We know from the other views that we removed a hump, and perhaps we can see a little of that from the difference in the shadowing along her dorsum between the before and after pictures.

There are two changes that we can see here.  The tip was narrowed, so if you look closely, you'll see that the prominences of the tip cartilages were reduced, and you can barely see the improvement in the contour of her columella.

Questioner: Rhinoplasty to Possibly Make my Eyes Look a Bit Less Wide Set?
I already know I want rhinoplasty. I'm just plainly curious if I could maybe make my eyes look a slightly closer together with a rhinoplasty. I've had a few people say i have wider set eyes, it doesnt look bad but I have neer ever noticed it until I got the comments, but now i see it a little bit. I'm not looking for a giant improvement but a noticeable one. Is it possible? Or would it make my nose too big and then look awkward?
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Don't worry about the width of your eyes. Rather, be sure to exactly define what you want done to your nose.
Occasionally I have a patient ask how a planned rhinoplasty will affect her eyes, because she's worried that the operation will make her eyes look closer together, or farther apart. The operation will do neither. Despite some people being understandably concerned about this issue, it never comes up after surgery; I've never had a patient complain that the eyes look wider apart or closer together. It seems to be one of those academic questions that just turns out not to materialize as a problem.

The only comment I get is that sometimes a patient with a very large nose says that her eyes look better after surgery because the nose no longer takes up so much attention.

At least from the images you submitted, your nose doesn't have any overwhelming feature to address surgically. Be sure you define exactly for your surgeon what you want changed, and get confirmation that he understands and can accomplish those changes. See the "Web reference" link for more suggestions.
