This nose was injured in an automobile accident. Her nose was pushed
off to the right side of her face. When a nose is off center on the
face, the patient usually has a "good side" and a "bad
side." This right oblique view is the bad side of a nose that is
pushed to the right. The nose's leaning to the right looks like a
bulge from this angle.
As you are browsing this patient's views, compare this view with her "good
side," which is view 3.
After surgery, she has a much nicer straight dorsum with a tip that is
more distinct and narrow.

My plastic surgeon doesn't use drain tubes after Neck Lift/Facelift. Is that okay?

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Drains after facelift
This is a question that cosmetic surgeons discuss regularly and you will find many different opinions. Most feel drains do help minimize seromas (fluid collections under the skin) and improve the recovery process. Some surgeons use fibrin sealants which also work well. Others just depend on dressings and pressure. In general, however, if your surgeon is experienced with facelifts and getting excellent results, then whether or not they use drains should not be an issue.
Best of luck with your procedure-
