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

Beverly Hills Doctors versus New York Doctors sense of aesthetics.
Hi, I am going to have a revision rhinoplasty soon. I am a male and I do not want my nose to look "done." Several people have told me that Beverly Hills doctors prefer a more "done" look than NY doctors. They say it is the style differences of the 2 cities. Is this true?

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Geography has nothing to do with the results of a rhinoplasty
Hi! Beverly Hills has surgeons who can give you a beautiful, natural nose, surgeons who will give you a nose that looks "done," and surgeons who shouldn't be operating on noses at all. New York City has all three kinds of surgeons, too. You pick a surgeon based on whether you like the results he has been able to accomplish for others, not on his location.
