If we are planning a peel of less than the full face, I like to peel areas that are least likely to cause problems if the peeled skin changes color a little due to the peel.  The area around the mouth can be peeled by itself, because that area's skin often has a slightly different color than the rest of the face, as in this woman.

You can't evaluate her skin color after the peel because of the makeup, but in the before picture, it is evident that the skin around her mouth is a little darker than the skin on her cheeks.  If the peel caused the skin around her mouth to be a different color after surgery, big deal: it was different to begin with.

Questioner: What Should I Do for a Nose That's Too Pointy AND Bulbous?
Hi there. I have been considering rhinoplasty for a few years. I am 23 and want a classic, feminine nose, maybe something like Natalie Portman's or Audrey Hepburn's. I think that I am pretty but I feel like my nose needs some enhancement--I think it's too bulbous when viewed from the front and too pointy from the side, and just too massive in general, though I don't think my nose is gigantic or anything. What should I do? Should I even bother getting one?
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: You do have some nose features that can be improved with a rhinoplasty
From these photos, your nose doesn't have any one overwhelming feature, but there are a few areas that could be reduced a small amount.  You have a mild hump on your nose, the nose protrudes strongly forward away from your face, the tip cartilages make the tip look a little broad, and the upper part, where it's made of bone, might be a little wide. You have many beautiful features to your face, which help to hide the nose. When investigating surgery, be sure you look at a doctor's before and after photos, to see whether he has been able to accomplish for someone else what you would like for yourself.
