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.

Do I need rhinoplasty/chin implant to get desired look?
I want to fix hump and biggest issue is how long it looks. Would rhinoplasty fix this? Does the tip look like it needs to be fixed?When i look straight ahead I feel like nose looks to wide esp when I smile. Would doing a chin implant at the same time as rhinoplasty help my face look more even and aligned? I think my chin looks weak, or would using something such as fillers in the lips make my profile look better and everything aligned? I included examples of what I want my nose to look like.

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Rhinoplasty can help, but I like your chin as it is now
You have that gentle hump on the bridge, and a tip that could be elevated to make your nose more like the example photos. In the right hands, these are realistic goals for a rhinoplasty. See the Web reference link for an example.
I wouldn't recommend a chin implant. You have a tall chin with good strength, and an implant would draw too much attention to the chin.
