Pay attention to the white dots on the tip of the nose and to the more subtle white highlights on the nose in between her eyes.  Those dots and highlights are reflections from the flash.  The white dots on the tip are just a bit higher in position in the after picture, indicating that the tip of the nose was elevated during surgery.

In the after picture, the white highlights on her nose between her eyes flow down onto the nose a small distance, allowing you to see that her nose is narrow in the mid-dorsum.  In the before picture, you see less of those highlights flowing down the nose, because the before nose is wider and less angular.

The base view of her nose, view 9, also illustrates the narrowing of her nose quite well.

Questioner: From a ridiculous extreme long/upward nose, to the other extreme ridiculous long/downward/wide nose
My 3d nose revision...devastated! (At same time: face, neck & lip lifts, fine!). See pre/post op photos plus 2 nose models I gave to surgeon as guidance. But nose is now much longer, wider, downward...Will it look like the nose models after swelling is gone? Doubt it. Wait a year to fix it? No! I’m desperate...Is there somewhere a competent surgeon who can do a shorter nose like my nose models? (I’m 87 but absolutely healthy). Thanks ever so much for your opinions!

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Your nose won't shorten as the swelling subsides
Hi,
Sorry, but it's just vanishingly unlikely that your nose will shorten as the swelling subsides, and certainly it won't shorten to the length of the models' photographs that you submitted.

The good news is that, with correct techniques, it is possible to shorten a nose substantially, even in a revision procedure. The bad news is that you can't jump in and have that operation right away. It may not be necessary to wait an entire year, but the nose needs at least many months to heal first.
