The signs of aging developed in this face in typical ways: the jowls
developing as drooping skin along the jaw line, the excess skin in the neck, and
the creation and deepening of the lines that extend downward from the corners of
the mouth and from the edges of the nostrils.
She had a face lift for the jowls and sagging skin and a peel for the wrinkles in the
oral region. Her longer, thinner neck and good jaw line gave her the
possibility of a better result, as the skin draped over her good bone structure
in the pull of the face lift.

Would I be a good candidate for fillers or would surgery be a better choice?
I've always thought I have a big weirdly shaped nose. I don't like the hump on my bridge and how long my nose tip is. I've been considering surgery for a while now but I recently heard about a cheaper alternative, using fillers. And if I should get fillers, where? If surgery is better, what exactly should I change?
(Questioner submitted photos)
Dr. Denenberg's answer: Fillers would ruin your nose
Here are the changes I would make to your nose: bring the tip back closer to your face, elevate the tip up a small amount, take down the gentle bump along the bridge, narrow the tip. All of these changes would move your nose in the direction of smaller.
Filler will make your nose bigger wherever it is placed. It's exactly what you don't need.
Also, the changes recommend are difficult, and not every surgeon can accomplish them. You need to see your doctor's before and after photos, because that's the only evidence you have that he has the skill. The diplomas and certifications tell you nothing.
Hope this helps!
