Supra Tip and High Root

I heard that high root may give the look of having a hump. And I think I have quite high root comparing to the rest. Does it give the look of a hump? And I want a slightly elevated tip, do I need to deproject my supra tip? Is it true that augmenting nasal sill can squeeze in the alas? Thank you

Only one photo view does not give all the information needed to properly assess your nose.  Your radix is marginally high but you do not have a prominent nasal dorsum.  Tip elevation may be necessary but I could not assess this with just one view at this angle.

Hi,

Although the root of your nose is slightly high, you do not have a dorsal "hump".  There are various techniques to elevate your tip.  I am not sure what you are asking regarding augmenting your nasal sill and the effect on your alas.

Good luck and be well.
