Rhinoplasty, or nose job surgery, is designed to reshape the nose. On profile, there should be good balance between the nose, chin, cheeks, and forehead. This should create facial harmony and good proportion. At times, patients may have a recessed chin and a nose that sticks out too far. There is only so much nose surgery can do to provide that right balance. Sometimes, in addition to bringing in the projection of the nasal tip in, adding a chin implant can truly create that right harmony for the face. I frequently perform silastic chin implants on many of my rhinoplasty patients.
