Okay, what can we see from this view? Her nostrils appear to be about
the same, so we didn't change the length of her nose significantly. We
know from the other views that we removed a hump, and perhaps we can see a
little of that from the difference in the shadowing along her dorsum between
the before and after pictures.
There are two changes that we can see here. The tip was narrowed, so if

reduced, and you can barely see the improvement in the contour of her

My plastic surgeon doesn't use drain tubes after Neck Lift/Facelift. Is that okay?

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Drains after facelift
This is a question that cosmetic surgeons discuss regularly and you will find many different opinions. Most feel drains do help minimize seromas (fluid collections under the skin) and improve the recovery process. Some surgeons use fibrin sealants which also work well. Others just depend on dressings and pressure. In general, however, if your surgeon is experienced with facelifts and getting excellent results, then whether or not they use drains should not be an issue.
Best of luck with your procedure-
