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.

Am I a Good Candidate for These Rhinoplasty Procedures?
I would like to get cosmetic surgery to reduce my dorsal hump and possible Radix reduction. Would I be a good candidate for these procedures? Would I require additional refinements other than what I mentioned? Is closed Rhinoplasty an option? I am unhappy with the bump, and height of my nose. It is also very wide and causes difficulties when I want to wear glasses.

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Radix reduction is important in your nose
If the hump is removed, the radix must be taken down as well, or you nose would look too long, like a Roman statue's nose. Also, raising the tip would help, as well as bringing the entire nose back, closer to your face. See the link to see what these changes could do for your nose.
