She has a prominent bifidity in her columella. "Bifidity"
means that you can see a dent between the two cartilages that make up the
columella. It's not such an uncommon finding. She probably had it
before her first operation, and it simply wasn't corrected during that first
In this view, you can see more of her nostrils in the before picture.
The nose was tilted up too much, and I attempted to lengthen it during the
revision. A longer nose shows less nostril from the frontal view.

Beverly Hills Doctors versus New York Doctors sense of aesthetics.
Hi, I am going to have a revision rhinoplasty soon. I am a male and I do not want my nose to look "done." Several people have told me that Beverly Hills doctors prefer a more "done" look than NY doctors. They say it is the style differences of the 2 cities. Is this true?

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Geography has nothing to do with the results of a rhinoplasty
Hi! Beverly Hills has surgeons who can give you a beautiful, natural nose, surgeons who will give you a nose that looks "done," and surgeons who shouldn't be operating on noses at all. New York City has all three kinds of surgeons, too. You pick a surgeon based on whether you like the results he has been able to accomplish for others, not on his location.
