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 my Nose Way Too Big? Should I Consider Rhinoplasty?
I've always hated my nose. I've never seen another person with a similar nose as mine. I feel its way too big. Should I consider a rhinoplasty :\?
(Questioner submitted photos)
Dr. Denenberg's answer: A wide nose like yours can usually be improved with a rhinoplasty.
From this one photo at least, it does appear that you would be a good candidate for a rhinoplasty. You seem to have strong cartilages that make your nose perhaps wider than average. Your nasal bones, in the upper half of your nose, are also wide apart, and could be brought closer together during the operation. I don’t see a profile view, but it also seems that your nose is long, from where it starts between your eyes down to your tip, and perhaps your profile view could be improved by elevating the tip of the nose at the same time as making the other changes.
