The frontal view shows the narrowing of the wide area where her hump was, and the elevation of the tip of her nose after surgery.  We can see a glimpse of her nostrils in the after picture; they were hidden in the before picture by her drooping tip.

One way to evaluate the shortening of the nose from the frontal view is to pay attention to the two white dots on the tip of the nose.  Those white dots are reflections from the flashes.  Compare the white dots' positions in the two photos above.

Questioner: Is It Possible to Make a Nose Shorter and Less Bulbous with Rhinoplasty?
I have a long nose with a bump and a big tip which I would really like to correct. Is there a way to correct all of these problems at once?
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Your nose is more projecting than it is long
Hi. You have a nose that is strong in its forward projection away from the face. Lessening that strength is called "deprojecting" the nose. 

"Length" is the measurement of the nose from where it begins between the eyes, down the bridge of the nose to the tip. So a nose with a droopy tip is "long," but Pinocchio had a "projecting" nose.

Deprojecting a nose involves complicated techniques on the tip cartilages, because it is those tip cartilages that hold the tip out away from your face. Be sure to see before and after photos of other patients whose noses were deprojected by the surgeon you are considering using, so you can see that he knows how to do this operation.
