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.

Which Nose Looks More Suitable on Me? I'm So Stressed. I've Been to 5 Consultations
So the nose one the right a girl on realself morphed that for me. While the other one my PS morphed. I feel like the PS morph makes my nose still stick out. The other one is cute and fits my face. Maybe I'm wrong. Help me pls
(Questioner submitted photos)
Dr. Denenberg's answer: When you decrease the projection of the nose, you usually should elevate the tip!
I like the morph on the right, too. It looks like the RealSelf participant elevated the tip of your nose a small amount when she adjusted the position of the tip. When the tip of the nose comes back toward the face, it can make the nose look longer, so the nose can look more natural or pleasing if the tip is elevated.
We didn't see the "before" photo, but if you are concerned about the amount that the nose is brought back toward the face, you need to take special care to see before and after photos from your prospective doctors showing noses that were changed in that same fashion. Adjusting the projection of the tip is an advanced technique; many of the revision operations I perform are aimed at correcting an inadequate amount of change in projection of the tip from the first operation.
