I wanted to know if the nose can be shortened and what is the determining factor to how much it can be shortened. Is there usually complication with it or is it easy? I haven't seen many before and afters of shortened noses on people with bumps. Usually those people have long noses too. The doctors seem to ignore their long nose and only take care of the bump. The people are left with freaky long noses!

Can my nose be shortened?
I don't know, if it would be aesthetically appropriate to shorten your nose since there are no picture of your nose. Short or long noses refer to the angle of tip rotation compared to the upper lip on profile. Normal angles of tip rotation for men are 105-110 degrees and 105-115 degrees for women. There are multiple methods for rotating the tip up, during Rhinoplasty and yes there are limits based on the angle your nose starts out and the aesthetic guidelines listed above.

Rhinooplasty and shortening nose
You have to be a biut more specific and that is why a consult is essential to figure out what you need. A bump can certainly be taken down, and a nose can be shortened by deconstructing the nasal tip( if that is what you mean).
Rhinoplasty can shorten a long nose
Rhinoplasty can shorten a long nose, raise the tip, and reduce a nasal hump. If you do find pictures of what you don't like, the information can help with planning your rhinoplasty, and hopefully lead to a result you do.
Best of luck,

Rhinoplasty techniques vary from patient to patient
There a variety of techniques used during rhinoplasty to shorten the nose. What technique is best for you can only be determined by examination by a competent rhinoplasty surgeon. Be sure to see a lot of before and after pictures to get a feel for the quality of the surgeons work. Board Certification by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery is advisable, as they have spent their entire career focused on nasal surgery. Good Luck.
