The "platform" of her upper eyelid, which is the skin between the upper eyelashes and the crease or fold about one-half inch above the lashes, is clearly visible in both the before and the after picture.  The good visibility of the platform in the before picture is one clue that she didn't need upper eyelid surgery.  A good candidate for upper eyelid surgery is someone whose excess upper eyelid skin has come down to cover the platform, covering the skin that she would want to put eyeliner or eye shadow on.  This woman could easily apply eyeliner to her upper lids even before surgery.

Questioner: Do I need a revision rhinoplasty?
I like everything about my new nose but the tip. Im 20 months post op and I'm not thrilled about the tip. It's very round and sort of droopy. Especially in pictures. At my last follow up, my doctor acknowledged that the skin underneath the nose was a little loose but even with the new procedure, there's a chance it'll still look the same way it does now. He claims there's no way to get rid of the skin. Thoughts?
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: It doesn't look like loose skin to me.
I have to say, I've never seen a case where drooping at the bottom of the nose there is loose skin hanging down. It's either cartilage or scar tissue.

This far after surgery, if the nose is still too big, you're looking at a revision. There are a couple of pieces of good news for you, though. It appears, from these photos, that the size is the result of strong cartilages under the skin, and a revision where reduction in size is the goal is more predictable than some other changes we try to make.

I would try to elevate the entire tip of your nose -- that's key -- narrow the tip, bring the whole nose back closer to the face, lower the bridge to match the new position of the tip.
