Could you tell me if this is normal?
When I Pull the Tip of my Nose Upwards It Causes my Upper Lip to Rise, is This Normal?

Lip moves with lifting nasal tip
Yes, the lip does raise up when you pull up the tip of the nose. SOme patients have what is called a tension tip when they have a large nasal hump and the tip pulls on the lip. In general with rhinoplasty, raising the tip does not work the same way as pushing it up with your finger.
The nose is attached to the lip. Wouldn't it be strange if lifting the tip of the nose didn't raise the lip?
