What Procedures Do I Need to Have Done to Look Like This?

I know I need rhinoplasty for sure. But after much research I was wondering if I need a brow lift? I'm trying to achieve a more open, soft doe eyed look. After a photo shoot there was some manipulation done on my nose and cheeks to thin them out. My main concern is my eye and nose area, though. However, I'm not the expert. How can I look like my ideal self??

Rhinoplasty, chin implant and nuchal liposuction.

Thank you for your inquiry!

It seems that you are a good candidate for a rhinoplasty along with a chin implant and possibly nuchal liposuction that will sculpt your facial features in a natural fashion and provide you with a harmonious look. However, without a physical examination it is not possible to provide you with specific details. I highly recommend that you schedule a consultation with a well-experienced surgeon.

It is important to mention that the finest cosmetic results in any particular case are based on a variety of factors, including: the unique anatomy of the patient, realistic expectations, a well-informed and detailed discussion with your plastic surgeon concerning the best options for you especially covering a deep understanding of the pros and cons of any given choice you will adopt.

Please keep in mind that following the advice from a surgeon online who offers to tell you what to do without a physical examination covering the nature and the status of the tissue, assessing your desired outcome, taking a full medical history, and discussing the pros and cons of each operative solution would not be in your best interest. With that in mind, it is the safest and for your best interest to find a plastic surgeon with solid experience and certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery who is ideally a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons that you will trust and be comfortable with. You should discuss your concerns with that surgeon in person.

Good luck!!!

IMHO, Rhinoplasty for nasal tip refinement and rasp/trim the nasal bridge cartilage and bone without osteotomies as your nose is nice and thin already.

Rhinoplasty, Chin Augmentation and a Browlift?

Based on this one photographic angle, there is only a few comments that can be made. It shows the benefits of a combined rhinoplasty and chin augmentation to create better facial balance. Your chin is a little short and your nose is a little long. The Photoshopped results show the benefits of those changes. However, I see nothing in these photos that would suggest the benefits of a browlift. Additional photo angles would be needed to answer whether a browlilft would be aesthetically beneficial.

Rhinoplasty and chin implant will improve overall appearance

I would have to agree with my colleagues in that you are not a candidate for brow lift. A rhinoplasty and chin implant will work wonders in achieving a more refined and balanced appearance. I believe you will be pleasantly surprised at what a difference these two procedures can make in your case. Best wishes, Dr. H

Rejuvenation to match Photoshoped image

Your cheeks and jaw line have been cleaned up a lot with image manipulation, makeup.  To achieve this look I think a cheek lift, and perhaps filler injections would be indicated.  Is this really something you want to do?

How do I look like the girl in the picture?

A great job with cosmetics and Adobe Photoshop will do it!  Rhinoplasty will help, but in my opinion, beyond that, it is impossible to tell based on one oblique shot.  Her cheeks seem higher and stronger than yours, mouth more narrow, chin stronger, and there are other subtle differences.  She may be leaner which increases visibility of underlying bony features. My comments, like the others here, are risk free conjecture.  You are a beautiful girl by any reasonable standard, and if you are considering surgery, get several qualified opinions in personal consultation before proceeding.

What procedures do I need?

The key here is how to look your best not someone elses. Also don't fall into the trap of trying to emulate fashion model magazine photos-these are almost always computer enhanced and altered and rarely show a true appearance. Having said that a rhinoplasty and chin implant would probably give you the look you are seeking. Avoid eyelid or brow surgery at this time. Your brows are at a nice level and you would only distort your eye shape.

Rhinoplasty nose job

It seems you would benefit from rhinoplasty or a nose job to improve the appearance of your face and allow observers to concentrate on the features you want them to see...your hair, lips, and eyes.  Your nose is currently detracting from these features and should simply blend into your face and be somewhat invisible...the ultimate goal of cosmetic rhinoplasty.
