This gentleman also had a face lift operation.  With the combination of the face lift and the peel, he achieved some improvement of the folds that course from the bottom of the nose to the corners of the mouth.  Those folds are typically corrected not at all or only slightly with a face lift, but adding the peel can give some reasonable softening.  The folds that extend downward and to the side from the corners of his mouth were also helped by the peel.

The improvement in the front of his neck was the result of the face lift.  We don't peel below the jaw line because the skin of the neck wouldn't heal well after a peel.

Questioner: Is my nose tip broken?
As a child I had a bad fall on my nose. Ever since it has gradually got worse over the years. I have trouble breathing from my left nostril and I have a poor sense of smell. I can feel a split at the front of the tip. Also if I squeeze my nose tip it feels springy. I'm not sure if this is related, but I suffer with nose bleeds alot too
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Your nose isn't broken, but you must be very careful in selecting a surgeon.
The split and the springiness and the size of your tip are all related to the fact that the two cartilages that form the tip of your nose are fairly large and asymmetric. Your skin is thin, so it's easy to see, and even feel, the contour of those cartilages under the skin.

This all means that if you decide to have a rhinoplasty, you must be very, very careful about selecting the right surgeon. The vast majority of rhinoplasty surgeons do not have the skill and expertise to handle your tip cartilages, which cartilages pose a significant technical challenge.

When evaluating surgeons, you must insist on seeing before and after photos of their other patients. Look to see whether the doctor has been able to handle large tips like yours. If the photos only show profile views, like shaving off a hump, that's not good enough evidence for your situation. Generally, the three-quarter views show the tip cartilages best.
