What do you recommend for profile correction? Nose job? Chin lip suction? Implant? (Photo)

Improving profile with rhinoplasty and chin augmentation
Along with this it looks as though your chin is a bit recessed. This tends to make your nose look bigger than it actually is. A chin implant can be done along with rhinoplasty to further improve our profile appearance.
It doesn't look like you would need neck liposuction based on your photos, though.
You can read more about combining chin augmentation with rhinoplasty at my web reference link below.

One thing to consider is your breathing. Making the nose smaller can adversely affect your breathing and you should be evaluated preoperatively to determine that you do not have any type of nasal airway obstruction to prevent future problems.
Please don't hesitate to come in for a consultation if you'd like. Just mention that's from Real Self and there will be no charge.
Profile correction - Rhinoplasty and chin implant combination?
Keep in mind that following advice from a surgeon on this or any other website who proposes to tell you what to do based on two dimensional photos without examining you, physically feeling your tissue, assessing your desired outcome, taking a full medical history and discussing the pros and cons of the operative procedure would not be in your best surgery. Natural appearing results need to be individualized and what is appropriate for one patient is not necessarily the best for someone else. I would suggest that you find a surgeon with extensive rhinoplasty experience certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and one who is ideally a member of The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) or a facial plastic surgeon (otolaryngologist) that you trust and are comfortable with. You should discuss your concerns with that surgeon in person. The extent and length of the procedure, cost, and the specific operative steps to achieve an ideal cosmetic result vary from patient to patient and would depend on the findings at your consultation examination.
