The combination of the excess skin on her upper lids and the vertical creases between her eyebrows makes her look like she's scowling at you in the before picture.  But she's not.  Her face is in repose.

Ideally, we might have thought about elevating her eyebrows, but you don't have to do everything.  That would have entailed another trip to the operating room, since I don't like to elevate the brows at the same time as taking excess skin off of the upper eyelids.  We simply planned as much improvement as we could get while minimizing trips to the operating room.

Questioner: Is it good to get a rhinoplasty done by a doctor that uses computer imaging than one does not?
i have been reading dr in tx that uses this technology in the surgery room. is it necessary to get an optimum out come with out it?
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Don't select your doctor based on whether he uses imaging, But ...
Computer imaging can be very, very helpful in rhinoplasty. It's helpful mostly so that you can communicate better to your surgeon what you want to change, and by how much you want to change it. I use imaging on almost every rhinoplasty. It's useful to show the patient how much change is possible, but even more, it's useful to me because I can understand even better what bothers the patient and what our goal should be.

It's best if the doctor runs the program, so you can continually address different areas and make changes. It's not useful to you as the patient if the nurse makes an unrealistic perfect morph that you don't get to modify or bring into the area of realism.

Having said all that, don't reject a doctor for not using imaging, **as long as he has excellent before and after photos**, but understand that without imaging, it might be harder for you to communicate to him accurately what you want.
