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: I'm Looking into the Possibility of Plastic Surgery. Any Advice Based on my Picture?
I'm looking for any recommendations. I've always been self-concious about my looks, specifically about my nose and lower jaw/chin. I'm looking for outside opinions as what would help me look more attractive/symmetrical and rough estimates. I'm currently located in Central PA. Thanks in advance!

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Bring the nose closer to the face, take down the hump, strengthen the chin, and ...
Hi, I'll tell you what most of my patients would request with a nose and chin like yours. See my "Web reference" link for a morph of your profile. I brought the tip of your nose back closer to your face, and brought your chin out farther forward. Those movements tend to put the profile into what most people feel is better balance. You might feel so, too. Then, I took down the hump along the bridge of your nose. I also raised the tip just a tiny amount.

Bringing the nose tip closer to the face, what we call "de-projecting" the nose, involves complicated work on the tip cartilages. You must be sure you see before and after photos of your surgeon's other patients, showing that he was able to achieve for them what you want for yourself. That's the best way to do research when deciding on a surgeon.
