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.

Question on Rhinoplasty? Bump on Bridge, Extreme Projection, Asymmetry?
I'm getting a wide range of opinions which Is confusing. Please look at my pics. I understand you can not correctly evaluate without an in person consult but opinions are greatly appreciated:-) I have never cared about my prominent nose until I got older losing volume and weight and the dreaded gravity has changed my appearance. I have a flat bridge which creates a bump. I have extreme projection and I have slight asymmetry hence crooked and getting worse as I age. short philtrum as well.
(Questioner submitted photos)
Dr. Denenberg's answer: You require expert tip work to make the changes you seek
The flat bridge is wide, and width turns into a hump when seen on the three-quarter view, which is why your nose has such a big hump on that view. It's the width of your nasal bones that cause the flatness, so your nasal bones need to be narrowed significantly.
The tip of your nose is far down, making the nose look long, and it is also strong in its forward projection from your face. Check the web link for a morph of your face, showing what could be achieved in a rhinoplasty. You need a surgeon who can prove to you with his before and after photos that he is expert in shortening and deprojecting noses, because it is work on the tip that accomplishes those two changes, and tip work is the most demanding part of a rhinoplasty.
