This peel worked well on those deep wrinkles in the skin of her lower eyelids, which was thicker than most people's lower eyelid skin.  Don't even think of trying to correct those wrinkles by pulling skin out of the lower lids.  She already has a low lower eyelid position.  Removing skin would have compounded the problem of low-positioned eyelids, and still would not have improved the wrinkles.

Questioner: Rhinoplasty to Possibly Make my Eyes Look a Bit Less Wide Set?
I already know I want rhinoplasty. I'm just plainly curious if I could maybe make my eyes look a slightly closer together with a rhinoplasty. I've had a few people say i have wider set eyes, it doesnt look bad but I have neer ever noticed it until I got the comments, but now i see it a little bit. I'm not looking for a giant improvement but a noticeable one. Is it possible? Or would it make my nose too big and then look awkward?
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Don't worry about the width of your eyes. Rather, be sure to exactly define what you want done to your nose.
Occasionally I have a patient ask how a planned rhinoplasty will affect her eyes, because she's worried that the operation will make her eyes look closer together, or farther apart. The operation will do neither. Despite some people being understandably concerned about this issue, it never comes up after surgery; I've never had a patient complain that the eyes look wider apart or closer together. It seems to be one of those academic questions that just turns out not to materialize as a problem.

The only comment I get is that sometimes a patient with a very large nose says that her eyes look better after surgery because the nose no longer takes up so much attention.

At least from the images you submitted, your nose doesn't have any overwhelming feature to address surgically. Be sure you define exactly for your surgeon what you want changed, and get confirmation that he understands and can accomplish those changes. See the "Web reference" link for more suggestions.
