Does removing just the dorsal hump & having osteotomies, but no tip work cause the tip/base of the nose to look wider? (Photo)

That being said, your frontal view is early on and you are certainly still swollen. Give it time. It sounds like you had a good surgeon who went over things in detail with you. Best of luck! You are looking great already for 2 weeks.

How the nose changes...
One thing I recommend, is seeing a surgeon who can take your photo and adjust them on their computer. You can then get an idea how changing one part will affect the rest of your nose.
You are correct, that if you narrow the upper party, the lower part can look different, but often, its so subtle it is not a problem.
I posted an article on this topic for you.
