Rhinoplasty: My nose is thin and too long for my face, if I get the hump removed would I need to make the tip smaller?

Rhinoplasty for nasal hump removal
Computer imaging can be performed in most plastic surgery office settings, with the better photographs and a higher resolution.
Balancing the nose
What you say is correct, but that will need to be assessed both before and during surgery. It's a question of balance. So the nose should fit the face, and the nose should looks good within itself. Get these issues addressed before you have surgery and be comfortable with what your surgeon is trying to achieve. Imaging is very useful as you have alluded to, as it can help both you and the surgeon see what is possible for your nose and face.
All the best.
