Express Expectations Clearly
You need to make sure that your PS understands exactly what you expect from your surgery!!! From the single photo you present, it appears that you need to have your alar cartilage trimmed conservatively, sutured and reshaped and then supported with a cartilage tip graft. This will rotate your tip up, better match it to the width of your nose and give it the support it needs.
The pinched tip in the other girl's photo is the result of an overly aggressive surgeon who removed way too much tissue and gave her an "overdone" look. Pick your surgeon wisely and you shouldn't have to worry about this kind of result…good luck!
