Smile Beginner's Extreme Retouch. Critiques Encouraged

Hey dudes, I'm relatively new at photo retouching so I wanted to emulate the kind of things I see on these forums. I did a google search for extra large images of faces and went to work. I'd love some pointers about anything I may have missed, or things I can do differently. I'm not super-familiar with all of the tools in photoshop but I'm eager to learn. My goal is to get a feel for what professionals would do with the same image I worked on. Thanks!

Here are the links to higher-rez versions:

I love the results of her new diet! Thinner yet not too thin. Great work.

:-P thanks Veralisa! I have a few female friends who I think were offended by how thin I made her look. I had to explain to them that I'm just trying to reproduce what the industry considers beautiful, and that it's not necessarily my idea of ideal beauty.

It retouching job is very impressive.

On the other hand it is so extreme that I would not recognize the person.

I'd buy it if someone tells me that this is the photo of the same woman 10 years later.
Cool job dude!

I think that's a technically correct insult.

I got that feeling, but I wasn't insulted by it. I just understood the gist of the statement.
