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
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.

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?
