Since gravity will immediately grab the skin and try to undo the changes that the face lift makes, the operation's goal is to obtain all the improvement that is possible.  By putting tension on the tissues that support the skin, underneath, rather than putting tension on the surface of the skin, the maximum amount of skin repositioning can be achieved while not making the face look pulled or tight.

As I've mentioned elsewhere, we don't try to remove wrinkles with the face lift; that is the task of the skin peel.

Questioner: Is it possible to change just the tip of my nose?
Is it possible to change just the tip of my nose without touching the bridge ? I don't want to get a small nose cause I know it won't suit my face. Thank you.
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: It *is* possible to change just the tip, but ...
... when you change the tip of the nose, you also change how the rest of the nose looks, adjacent to the new tip, and often there are some adjustments to the rest of the nose that also make sense.

For example, the modification that I made in the video link below shows elevating and narrowing the tip of your nose. It's still strong in its forward projection from your face, but I reduced the strength of the bridge of the nose just a little bit, to match the tip.

It's the rare nose where you can work only, only on the tip, and still get an excellent result.

That make sense?
