The paired jowls interfere with the contour of the jaw line as it moves from
the chin up to the ears. In the after picture, that contour is more
triangular; in the before, the jowls make burbles in the smooth line of the
jaw. Note that her melolabial folds
did not improve with the face lift, as they typically do not.
Her lower eyelids sit in a low position as a complication of lower eyelid
surgery that was performed elsewhere. The eyelid surgery tutorial's
chapter on lower eyelid surgery contains a discussion
on what can happen to the eyelids when
the eyelid operation isn't performed with judgment and care.

I'm 19 yrs old and I broken my nose. What Type of Rhinoplasty Procedure Would You Recommend for This Nose?
Hi there, I've been thinking about having rhinoplasty for a while now and I thought this site is a good place to start. To begin, I've broken my nose when I was 11 (19 now) and it was kinda crooked at a particular side angle. By looking at these pictures, what kind of rhinoplasty procedure would you feel is best to fix my nose. I'm looking for a professional opinion. Thanks.

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Your rhinoplasty requires expert work on the tip, besides the hump removal
You have a hump that can be reduced. In addition, the size of the hump disguises some other large features of your nose: your nose is strong in its forward projection from the face, and it is long, too, with the tip low. I made some morphs for you at the web reference link, to show changing all of those features. If only the hump is removed, your nose will almost certainly look too big to you. You need to select a surgeon who can show you that he knows how to deproject and shorten a nose, changes that are much more complicated than simply removing a hump.
Other problems resulting from the previous trauma can be addressed at the same time as the rhinoplasty.
