Pay attention to the white dots on the tip of the nose and to the more subtle
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
The base view of her nose, view 9,
also illustrates the narrowing of her nose quite well.

Will Fixing Bulbous Tip Make the Nose Look Thinner?
I have a bulbous tip nose. I want to get my nose to have a normal tip but also want it to look thinner. If I get the bulbous tip fixed, will my nose automatically look skinnier?
(Questioner submitted photos)
Dr. Denenberg's answer: The tip and the bridge can be narrowed at the same time, but using different techniques
The work done during surgery to narrow the tip of the nose won't change the appearance of the upper part of the nose -- that part can also be narrowed, as a different part of the operation.
Careful, though, because narrowing a nasal tip is an advanced technique, and you should see before and after photos, before selecting your doctor, of other patients who specifically had their nasal tips narrowed. A profile view won't show that to you; it's the angled views, like the one you posted, that show the width of the tip.
