mid portion of the neck. All of his improvement in the eyelid and upper
cheek areas is attributable to the chemical peel.
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

What is the purpose of massaging nose after rhinoplasty? Do I need to do it if nose is uneven in swelling?
I went to my doctor and forgot to ask him about the unevenness in the swelling of my nose after my rhinoplasty. Since bandage removal post op to now, 7 weeks post op, the right side of nose is still more swollen than the left, and its always been like that. I head about massaging the nose on this website, should I do it? Do some doctors say its mandatory or is it just a recomendation always to help reduce swelling?t I'm just paranoid about my constant uneven swelling on my right side of my nose.

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Don't massage your nose
I know doctors disagree about this, but I'll give you my 2 cents. Don't massage the nose. The doctor put the cartilages and bones in a certain position, and you want them to stay where they were put. Don't push them around by massaging the nose. It won't do anything to decrease the swelling or speed up the maturation of the scar tissue.
It can't help, and it might hurt.
