This woman's wrinkling around the mouth is about the mildest that I would consider appropriate for a peel.  Any less wrinkling, and I'd ask her to wait.  She was a good candidate from the standpoint of skin color: her pale skin was at low risk for a noticeable change in pigmentation resulting from the peel.

Our target was correction of the wrinkles in the upper and lower lips, and the more prominent wrinkles that looked like parentheses around the corners of her mouth.

Questioner: Can my nose tip be lifted and made smaller? I want a lip lift. too. Will it give me a good image?
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Nose: yes. Lip: no.
Hi. I agree that your nose, while certainly not terribly long, is at the longer end of a range of normal, and if your tastes run to shorter noses, a significant elevation of the tip is possible and fine. It also appears that you have strong cartilages in the tip of your nose, and some narrowing of those cartilages might be good, too.

Work on the tip cartilages often comprises advanced techniques that not every plastic surgeon can accomplish, so be sure to see before and after photos of the doctor's work before selecting a surgeon.

The lip lift: no, no, no! It would leave a visible scar at the bottom of your nose, and your lip already looks great!  A lip lift is for someone with a ***much*** longer upper lip than yours!
