The excess skin on her upper eyelids was so heavy that it was pushing her lids down to cover her pupils.  Note that in the after picture, we can see much more of the iris, the colored part of the eye.

Also, in the before picture we can't see any of the crease that normally resides about one-fourth of an inch above the eyelashes.  That crease provides a perfect place to hide the incision for this operation.

Questioner: Do I need rhinoplasty/chin implant to get desired look?
I want to fix hump and biggest issue is how long it looks. Would rhinoplasty fix this? Does the tip look like it needs to be fixed?When i look straight ahead I feel like nose looks to wide esp when I smile. Would doing a chin implant at the same time as rhinoplasty help my face look more even and aligned? I think my chin looks weak, or would using something such as fillers in the lips make my profile look better and everything aligned? I included examples of what I want my nose to look like.
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Rhinoplasty can help, but I like your chin as it is now
You have that gentle hump on the bridge, and a tip that could be elevated to make your nose more like the example photos. In the right hands, these are realistic goals for a rhinoplasty. See the Web reference link for an example.

I wouldn't recommend a chin implant. You have a tall chin with good strength, and an implant would draw too much attention to the chin.
