In this fully-lit oblique view, you can see that she has some irregular pigmentation as a complication of the peel.  Follow from the front of her chin, along her jaw line up toward the ear and see how the skin color changes.

She was at a much higher than average risk of a noticeable pigmentation change because she had so much pigment in her skin before surgery.  If the skin has a noticeable change after surgery, it's usually that the peeled skin is lighter than it was before the operation.  The lighter your skin, the less pigmentation you have before surgery, and the less likely you are to have a noticeable change.

She was still an excellent candidate for the peel, however, because we anticipated such a marvelous improvement that we thought we could live with a little pigment irregularity.

Questioner: What Should I Do for a Nose That's Too Pointy AND Bulbous?
Hi there. I have been considering rhinoplasty for a few years. I am 23 and want a classic, feminine nose, maybe something like Natalie Portman's or Audrey Hepburn's. I think that I am pretty but I feel like my nose needs some enhancement--I think it's too bulbous when viewed from the front and too pointy from the side, and just too massive in general, though I don't think my nose is gigantic or anything. What should I do? Should I even bother getting one?
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: You do have some nose features that can be improved with a rhinoplasty
From these photos, your nose doesn't have any one overwhelming feature, but there are a few areas that could be reduced a small amount.  You have a mild hump on your nose, the nose protrudes strongly forward away from your face, the tip cartilages make the tip look a little broad, and the upper part, where it's made of bone, might be a little wide. You have many beautiful features to your face, which help to hide the nose. When investigating surgery, be sure you look at a doctor's before and after photos, to see whether he has been able to accomplish for someone else what you would like for yourself.
