Her face lift did a better-than-average job of tightening her cervical
angle. What's the cervical angle? Let's draw more lines.
Picture a line that ascends the skin along the front of her neck, and another
line that goes backward from her chin toward the front of her neck. The area where the
underside of her chin meets the front of her neck is a fairly distinct angle in the after
picture, whereas the skin makes a gentle curve from the chin to the front of the
neck in the before picture.
It's usually difficult to make the cervical angle this tight during a face
lift, because the cervical angle is the farthest
point from where the face lift incisions are made. But sometimes things just fall into place.
Different people will obtain different amounts of
improvement in the area of the cervical angle, even if the
operation is performed with technical skill every time.

Am I a Good Candidate for These Rhinoplasty Procedures?
I would like to get cosmetic surgery to reduce my dorsal hump and possible Radix reduction. Would I be a good candidate for these procedures? Would I require additional refinements other than what I mentioned? Is closed Rhinoplasty an option? I am unhappy with the bump, and height of my nose. It is also very wide and causes difficulties when I want to wear glasses.

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Radix reduction is important in your nose
If the hump is removed, the radix must be taken down as well, or you nose would look too long, like a Roman statue's nose. Also, raising the tip would help, as well as bringing the entire nose back, closer to your face. See the link to see what these changes could do for your nose.
