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.

From a ridiculous extreme long/upward nose, to the other extreme ridiculous long/downward/wide nose
My 3d nose revision...devastated! (At same time: face, neck & lip lifts, fine!). See pre/post op photos plus 2 nose models I gave to surgeon as guidance. But nose is now much longer, wider, downward...Will it look like the nose models after swelling is gone? Doubt it. Wait a year to fix it? No! I’m desperate...Is there somewhere a competent surgeon who can do a shorter nose like my nose models? (I’m 87 but absolutely healthy). Thanks ever so much for your opinions!

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Your nose won't shorten as the swelling subsides
Sorry, but it's just vanishingly unlikely that your nose will shorten as the swelling subsides, and certainly it won't shorten to the length of the models' photographs that you submitted.
The good news is that, with correct techniques, it is possible to shorten a nose substantially, even in a revision procedure. The bad news is that you can't jump in and have that operation right away. It may not be necessary to wait an entire year, but the nose needs at least many months to heal first.
