Long (over projected) nose
The Long, Over-Projected Tip
One of the features that can make a nose look too big, especially from the profile view, is having an overly long, or over-projected tip. Tip projection refers to how far forward the nose travels from the face. Rhinoplasty can be used to treat a long nose by repositioning or trimming the tip cartilages. At the same time care must be taken in creating a seamless, well-balanced profile to coincide with the new tip position. As a result de-projecting an over-projected tip may also involve shaving down excess cartilage or bone from the bridge.
