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: 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.
