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.

Am I a Good Candidate for These Rhinoplasty Procedures?
I would like to get cosmetic surgery to reduce my dorsal hump and possible Radix reduction. Would I be a good candidate for these procedures? Would I require additional refinements other than what I mentioned? Is closed Rhinoplasty an option? I am unhappy with the bump, and height of my nose. It is also very wide and causes difficulties when I want to wear glasses.

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Radix reduction is important in your nose
If the hump is removed, the radix must be taken down as well, or you nose would look too long, like a Roman statue's nose. Also, raising the tip would help, as well as bringing the entire nose back, closer to your face. See the link to see what these changes could do for your nose.
