I don't like the side-view of my face. I have a flat forehead, short nose, and a protruding chin. I've always wished I had a more feminine look- with a slightly rounded forehead, longer nose, and a not-so-pointed chin. Is this possible?
Is There a Procedure to Change the Profile of my Face?

Procedure to change profile of the face
Certainly a protruding chin can be brought back with removal and osteotomies of the chin area to decrease the projection. There are no good methods of augmenting the forehead. The nose can be addressed through multiple different rhinoplasty techniques depending upon the needs, wishes, and desires of the patient.
