The creases that extend from the corners of the mouth down to the jaw line
are partially corrected with a face lift. The lower part of those creases,
close to the edge of the jaw, are typically improved, and the upper part of
those creases, close to the corners of the mouth, are typically not improved.

Is It Worth Getting my Rhinoplasty? Because I Think my Front Looks Good.
how should it change?
(Questioner submitted photos)
Dr. Denenberg's answer: Often the frontal view changes little in a rhinoplasty
When most of your complaints result from a strong profile view, it's possible to improve that profile while making only tiny changes to the frontal view. See my "Web reference" link for a morph showing how your profile could be changed and some other important info. I brought the tip of your nose back closer to your face, took down the hump, and raised the tip a small amount.
These changes would only affect the frontal view by perhaps having the nose not droop down over your lip quite so much. It makes sense: you can't really tell from the frontal view how big someone's hump is, so it's the profile view that changes more.
