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: My nose looks like it's cut in the middle, and looks like an extension?
From the picture you can tell that the surgeon made a mess. Looking at the picture, do you think a surgery is necessary?

Dr. Denenberg's answer: No fillers, please! But I believe improvements can be made.
Hi,

I know it's just one photo that you posted, but there are generally ways to improve the areas that you complain about in a revision rhinoplasty. 

The "dents" can often be filled in with cartilage grafting, and they can be made further inconspicuous by lowering prominences of bone next to the dents.

Then, I don't know whether this bothers you, but the tip of your nose can be raised, too. Whenever a nose is a little smaller, the bothersome features often are less noticeable. I shortened your nose in my morph.

My guess is that the doctor who recommended fillers or fat grafting does not perform revision rhinoplasty. Respectfully, I just think that's not a good solution for what I see in your photo.
