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.

Is it possible to change just the tip of my nose?
Is it possible to change just the tip of my nose without touching the bridge ? I don't want to get a small nose cause I know it won't suit my face. Thank you.
(Questioner submitted photos)
Dr. Denenberg's answer: It *is* possible to change just the tip, but ...
... when you change the tip of the nose, you also change how the rest of the nose looks, adjacent to the new tip, and often there are some adjustments to the rest of the nose that also make sense.
For example, the modification that I made in the video link below shows elevating and narrowing the tip of your nose. It's still strong in its forward projection from your face, but I reduced the strength of the bridge of the nose just a little bit, to match the tip.
It's the rare nose where you can work only, only on the tip, and still get an excellent result.
That make sense?
