If my plan is to perform both a brow lift and upper eyelid surgery, I
like to do the brow lift first, and then work on the upper eyelids about six weeks
later. It's a small hassle for the patient, but I think it gives better
When performing the upper eyelid surgery, I like to take off enough skin that
the patient can't quite get her eyelids closed for a couple days after
surgery. By the end of the week, the lids are closing fine. That
way, I am convinced that I removed all of the skin that I could safely remove.
If I'm elevating the brows during the same operation, it's not safe to be
that aggressive with the skin excision on the upper lids. I have to skimp
on the lid excision, and the result isn't quite as good.

Is it possible to change just the tip of my nose?
Is it possible to change just the tip of my nose without touching the bridge ? I don't want to get a small nose cause I know it won't suit my face. Thank you.
(Questioner submitted photos)
Dr. Denenberg's answer: It *is* possible to change just the tip, but ...
... when you change the tip of the nose, you also change how the rest of the nose looks, adjacent to the new tip, and often there are some adjustments to the rest of the nose that also make sense.
For example, the modification that I made in the video link below shows elevating and narrowing the tip of your nose. It's still strong in its forward projection from your face, but I reduced the strength of the bridge of the nose just a little bit, to match the tip.
It's the rare nose where you can work only, only on the tip, and still get an excellent result.
That make sense?
