As per your request, to elaborate, the root presents itself with a strange curvature. The dorsum is also curved, which helps to contribute what you identify as a "beaky" appearance. The tip can be decreased and the projection can be more angular. The ala could also be increased. Definition of the columella might benefit you as well.

I hope this helps!!!

Thanks guys,
I appreciate the input greatly. I'll have to keep tinkering in photoshop... I haven't found a look that I'm really happy with quite yet. I was hoping for something subtle but I also wonder if my longer and very flat upper lip makes it hard to create the profile I'm hoping for. I'll post some altered photos later, if that's ok... I'd love the feedback/input.

Definitely post some pics showing us what you would like your nose to look like.
That would be very interesting!!!

If you use any online morphing technology remember it is good to use so you and your surgeon are on the same page, however, actual post-op results often do not reflect what the morph demonstrates.

I do a little graphic design in my free time so I just did some tweaking in photoshop... I actually ended up pushing my upper lip back a little and refining my jaw line a little... Robyne, how does this compare to the items you had listed?

I think you did a great job on your profile-- seriously! I like how your dorsum is much improved but not perfect perfect. Doesn't look like you did much to your frontal...

Thanks I'm not really sure what I'd change from the frontal perspective... I narrowed the bride a little to make it flow a bit better but I'm not sure what I'd want to change otherwise. Maybe widen the tip a little? Dunno.

well, that's where meeting with a plastic surgeon come in. Anything you do to your profile will obviously have an effect on your frontal and a good surgeon should be able to replicate your profile and then show you what your corresponding frontal would have to look like to acheive that. Sometimes you may like one view but not the other and perhaps compromise one or two things to get both a profile and a frontal that appeal to you...that seems to be how it is going for me anyway...

Nice work!!!

The root is highly improved. Dorsum looks natural, but not perfect. I'm not sure what you are trying to achieve so this portion is all up to you and your perspective. The tip still would need some more refinement. Ala looks good. Columella looks good but still needs more definition.
