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: What Can Be Done to Improve my Nose ?
I have always hated my nose, im a very pretty girl and my nose just takes away from it. My nose is uneven, there's a dent right in the middle of the tip of my nose and I don't remember when it got there or how but I didn't have it last year. And i hate my projection. I want my nose to be in line with my lips, Can you please tell me what can be done to correct this news of a nose ? What expectations are realistic ?
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Narrow the tip, deproject (slightly), fill in the dent
It seems to me that one of the main issues of your nose is the width of the tip. That's related, of course, to the strength of the two cartilages that form your tip, and the space between those two cartilages can show up as a dent if the cartilages are strong. See my "Web reference" link for a morph and an animation showing how your nose might look after surgery.

In the morph, I also brought the tip of your nose back toward your face. You didn't provide an exact profile view, which view shows the projection best, but from the three-quarter, it seems that some of the strength of projection might be related to the width of the tip, which can *look* like excess projection on that three-quarter view. I think the morph might make that clearer.

When looking for a plastic surgeon, you need to see before and after photos of tip work, because that's the hardest part of the operation. At least I think so!
