This woman had a face lift operation and a chemical peel of the skin around her mouth.  But she also had another procedure, called a pre-jowl implant.  The jowl makes a bulge in the jaw line, and there usually appears to be a dent just in front of the jowl.  The face lift pulls the jowl's excess skin up and back toward the ear to smooth the jaw line, but the smoothing can be more effective if we put something underneath the skin to push out that dent at the same time.

That something is called a pre-jowl implant, and as the name suggests, it fills out the depression in front of the jowl.  The implant looks very much like a chin implant, but it is shaped so that it doesn't make the chin stronger from the profile view.  The face lift surgery tutorial contains a chapter devoted to the topic of pre-jowl implants (the surgery tutorials contain explicit photographs taken during surgery).

Questioner: Will Anyone Be Able to Make my Nose Look Like my Morphed After-photos?
Does it look like my after-photos is something that could be done? I am looking for someone who is skilled with especially tip-work, since I will need to deproject my nose-tip and possibly "slim" it down a bit, since it's also a bit bulbous. And then I also want to get rid of the bump on the nose bridge. Is it possible? And what would you charge for such a procedure?
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Your morphed changes are definitely possible
I like your morph a lot! The nose was made shorter (I kind of like shorter noses), the tip was brought back closer to your face, the hump was removed, and the artist also tried to decrease the prominence of your right tip cartilage. Click on my "Web reference" link for an animation of your morph -- I find that animations of the morphs allow you to study the changes better.

When selecting a surgeon, you definitely need to see before and after photos of patients with some of your same issues. Bringing the tip up, and back to the face, and making it more narrow -- all of those changes require advanced work on the tip of the nose, the hardest part of a rhinoplasty.
