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.

Questioner: Would the Results I Desire Be Possible and Not Risky?
I feel my nose is simply out of place on my long face with my relatively deep set eyes and tiny lips. I would very much like a much finer and upward tip, generally finer nose and no dorsal hump what so ever. However, a surgeon would have to work with my nose and make the best of it, they can't simply give me a brand new one. Would the results I want as on the picture (excuse my crude photoshop-ing) be too tricky and risky?
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Your morphing is excellent, and your proposed changes are possible
Your proposed changes are certainly possible. See my "Web reference" link for a proposed change to your morph. I re-made it, taking down the small prominence that you left on your bridge just above the tip. That prominence should be taken down, as in my morph, to give the bridge a straighter appearance and make the tip look more delicate.

Be sure to see lots of before and after photos of the surgeon you pick, to make sure he has been able to accomplish for other people what you want for yourself.
