Will my cheeks look bigger with a nose job? (Photo)

I have full facial cheeks. I'm afraid with a different nose shape my cheeks will look bigger.

Will the cheeks look bigger following rhinoplasty?

Having a rhinoplasty performed will not make your cheeks appear larger. It may result in the following:

1) A nose that better complements your face
2) A nose that enhances your own facial features

Choose a board certified and experienced surgeon for an in-person consult, as he or she will be able to provide you with the best advice. I hope this helps, and good luck.

Do you think they are too large now?

To the extent that your nose will be a bit smaller, you might think that your cheeks are more noticeable.  If you think your cheeks are too large now, then you might think they look larger afterwards.  No one can predict this.

Appearance of cheeks after a rhinoplasty

The appearance of your cheeks will not change after a rhinoplasty procedure. The rhinoplasty procedure involves shaving down a dorsal hump to make the nose looked less projecting. For many examples of rhinoplasty, please see the link below  to our photo gallery

Your cheeks will not look bigger after rhinoplasty. Rather, your eyes should appear even more attractive.

  I think that tip elevation and refinement along with dorsal hump reduction will produce a very nice result.  I would not worry about the cheeks.
