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: What is the best filler to correct a too sloped/curved nose (after rhinoplasty)?
I had a rhinoplasty ten+ years ago. While I am happy with my nose, it is very ski slope, which is very cute but I feel it would be nicer if it were just straight and the bridge slightly thinner (it used to be slightly raised so it's already great). I also feel I have a slight amount of excess skin each side of the bridge, which could be absorbed. I think this can be done with a filler and is a fairly easy procedure. Any advice on which injectable? Or any other advice?
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Don't do it.
Sorry, I don't really mean to be oppositional but...

Your nose looks great. The "slope" is so slight that it's all but imperceptible. The injection wouldn't make the bridge thinner, it wouldn't help with the "excess skin" on the sides. It would only harm your nose. It can't be controlled well enough to both reduce the slope and not cause a bump. It would be asymmetric and make your nose look crooked from the front. Whenever you use the term "slightly" to describe something wrong with a nose, that means that the nose shouldn't have any treatment. And finally, nothing on the nose is "easy," even just injecting filler.
