The peel is perfect for the fine lines that develop in the lower eyelids, spilling out over the cheekbones and in to the crows feet regions.  She didn't have any fat bulges in her lower lids, making the peel the correct operation.

In men, I don't like to peel an isolated area, such as just the lower eyelids.  The peel usually changes the skin color a small amount, and men, who don't wear makeup, at least this year, might have a harder time hiding a small (or rarely large) pigment change in the peeled skin.

For that reason, I often ask my male peel candidates to wait until we feel that a peel of the entire face makes sense.

Questioner: Rhinoplasty gone wrong? Nostrils not even
Help, I had surgery on the 18th of May. Right away I noticed my nostrils were not even. When I went back to my doc the following day after surgury and addressed this with him he said my nostrils were probably uneven before the surgery, which is not the case. What should I do? What do you think ? I am panicking because it is now the 20th and although I know my nose is still swollen I don't believe my nostrils will change. What do you think?
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Go back to your doctor again.
Asymmetric swelling can cause visible asymmetries that go away if it's truly only the swelling that's asymmetric.

But you're only a couple days after surgery! Your doctor is the one who knows what happened during surgery, and you're kind of stuck with him for support right now. Call him again for another evaluation/pep talk.
