Rhinoplasty with Chin Implant

Many of my cosmetic nose surgery patients are unaware that one of the reasons their nose may appear over projected or enlarged is that their chin may be a little recessed. Although many of these patients may be coming in for a rhinoplasty consultation, I frequently will discuss the possibility of a chin implant to improve their overall aesthetic appearance.

The profile of the face is all about balance and harmony between the nose, chin, cheeks, and forehead. A chin implant can enhance the profile by creating this proportion between these features.

Chin augmentation with an implant has a short recovery with minimal downtime.
