From Steven M. Denenberg, M.D.:

Here is the before and after I made of your nose. I brought the tip of your nose back closer to your face, "deprojecting" it, and decreased the amount of the septum, the inside of your nose, that is visible from this side view.

Note that I did not build up the bridge at all. I think that's a more risky procedure, and it opens up the possibility of more complications:

Here is an animation of that change:


And here is an animation of making the frontal view more narrow. You'll see that I only narrowed it a small amount; narrowing the frontal view of the nose is difficult, and I don't like to show too much narrowing on an animation:

A couple more points about selecting your surgeon:
1) It is mandatory that you see before and after photos before deciding on a surgeon. The rhinoplasty operations are the most difficult procedures a plastic surgeon performs. Every surgeon performs them with different levels of skill. You need to see that your doctor has been able to accomplish for other people what you want for yourself. Certificates and board certifications won't tell you that -- only photos will.

2) Computer imaging is important. It allows you to see what the doctor has in mind, so you can tell him if you don't think he understands your goals accurately.
