The oblique views that are more darkly lit are the best views in which to see
the strength of the cartilages that form the tip of her nose. The more
rounded those cartilages are, and the thinner the skin that covers the tip, the
more we are able to see the outline and the curves of the strong cartilages.
The surgery on those tip cartilages is also what allows the tip of the nose
to elevate, shortening the nose, and to move back toward the face.

My plastic surgeon doesn't use drain tubes after Neck Lift/Facelift. Is that okay?
(Questioner submitted photos)
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-
