Cutting slice of skin off from nose during rhinoplasty between eyes to shorten skin that gets loose as we age? Normal?

Removing skin off the dorsum of the nose is not usually performed to achieve good results. Best of luck to be seen in person.
Hello and thank you for your question. Dorsal skin excision is not usually performed. An in-person examination could help you decide this. Make sure you specifically look at before and after
pictures of real patients who have had this surgery performed by your surgeon
and not just a computer animation system. The most important
aspect is to find a surgeon you are comfortable with. I recommend that you seek
consultation with a qualified board-certified plastic surgeon who can evaluate
you in person.
Best wishes and good luck.
