Hi, I have a large nose and an overbite, I think overall my side profile is not very appealing. Although I have an overbite, I still have quite a defined chin, as you can see from my side profile picture where I'm smiling. I have also included a front facing picture because I think my overbite has given me a round chin. I was just wondering what I should do about my side profile, any advice would be appreciated so much, thanks!
Do You Suggest Orthognathic Surgery or Rhinoplasty To Enhane My Profile? Or Both? (photo)

Rhinoplast and/or Orthognathic Surgery
Undoubtedly you would benefit from both a rhinoplasty and correction of your overbite. Chin definition can also be improved.

Aesthetically speaking, your profile would be balanced with a Rhinoplasty to reduce the nasal hump as well as Chin Augmentation using a Chin Implant.
Rhinoplasty and/or rhinoplasty
If is difficult to diagnose your skeletal anatomy without a radiograph. From your photos you may require surgery in both the maxilla and mandible. This would correct your bite and improve your profile. This should be done prior to a rhinoplasty since the nasal form will change with the orthognathic surgery. Donald R.

It's all relative
othognathic surgery can have a dramatic effect but it does involve significant cost and recovery period. chin implants can also have a dramatic effect with less recovery time and a simpler procedure.
rhinoplasty alone can frequently set the proportions of the face to a very pleasing condition.
your chin projection is only slightly recessed. if you want to keep things simple consider starting with rhinoplasty, then considering other options for your chin at a later time
