She had one of the largest collections of fat underneath the skin of the eyelids that I've seen.  She had those large attractive eyes that were partially hidden by the fat protrusions.

The bulges are easy to see.  In most people, excess fat also resides in the upper eyelids, but only in the inner corner of the upper eyelid, adjacent to the nose.

During the upper eyelid surgery, besides the removal of excess skin, the fat that makes the little bulge next the nose is removed as well.

Questioner: Could You Explain How the "Scoring" Technique Works in Rhinoplasty?
Hello,I have a dorsal hump on my nose, and when smiling a slightly bulbous, droopy and boxy tip. My surgeon, an ENT, is going to perform endonasal/closed rhinoplasty. For my tip he has suggested minimal changes with sutures and scoring. I have thin skin, so any resections of cartilage or grafts will show through. I wanted a more refined tip, but I am thinking that scoring of the cartilage will make for a bigger bulkier appearance of the tip. If I am wrong please explain how scoring works Thanks!

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Scoring alone can have disappointing results
Hi, Sissi,

In my experience, scoring alone is not adequate for reducing the size of a bulbous, droopy, and boxy tip. The rationale is that by making a series of scratches, or cuts that don't go through-and-through the cartilage, you can weaken the cartilage to fold over somehow and look more narrow. But it's not predictable, or very controllable. Also, it can disturb the cartilage enough that in the not-so-unlikely event that you would seek a revision, the scoring of the cartilage can put a limit on the amount of improvement the revision surgeon can make.

And in the case of *shortening* a nose, I just don't think it can be done at all by scoring.

Did your doctor show you lots of before and after photos of his other patients where he made attractive changes in the width and position of the tip by using scoring? If not, you should stay away.
