The fat underneath the skin of the neck was removed, and the skin was repositioned up and back.  If a patient is only 30 to 40 years old, I can sometimes perform only a liposuction under the chin, without the face lift.  However, if the skin has lost some of its elasticity, removing only the excess fat won't help, because the skin won't "shrink-wrap" to the neck after the fat removal; it will hang loosely, and the appearance might be worse than if nothing had been done.

The combination of removing the fat and repositioning the skin is our best bet in patients older than about 45 years of age.

Questioner: Would I be a good candidate for rhinoplasty?
If so, would it be a complicated procedure? What kind of improvement is reasonable to expect? Apologies for the radiator in the background.
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Yes, of course you're a good candidate
If I were able to demonstrate on a computer the kinds of change that I would recommend for your nose, I would lower the hump, and bring the entire nose, including the tip, back closer to your face.

Making those changes would make the nose look longer, though, so we'd raise the tip of your nose, so the nose doesn't look too long after surgery. 

It's hard to make changes, however, on photos this small. If you post larger photos, it'd be possible.

And yes, it would be a complicated procedure, because of the myriad changes that are on the list of things to do.
