The rhinoplasty decreases the projection of the nose while a chin implant will increase projection of the chin. The combination of rhinoplasty and chin implant will significantly improve the facial balance and is an excellent combination for you. The risks involve nosebleeds, anesthesia, and a small chance for touchup at a year after full healing has taking place.

Am I a candidate for rhinoplasty and a chin implant?
Looking at your photos, it appears you are a good candidate for a rhinoplasty and chin implant. When the procedures are performed properly by a skilled and board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, associated risks are minimized. A chin implant is a relative simple procedure that can yield a great result. Risks may include infection (rare) and asymmetry. Risks of rhinoplasty may include but are not limited to asymmetry, irregularities, and impaired breathing. It is important to do your homework, and choose a qualified surgeon with a great deal of experience. This will ensure you obtain a result you are happy with. I hope this helps, and I wish you the bets of luck.

Rhinoplasty and chin implant
I think your profile can be improved with a rhinoplasty. Also, liposuction of your neck and a chin implant would also be improvements. Overall, I am usually not crazy about chin implants, but you are a good candidate. the biggest risk with rhinoplasty surgery is the possibility that you are unhappy with the results or need a revision. Bleeding and infection almost never occur. Your greatest chance for a nice result is to choose a surgeon who is experienced and whose results you like.
Rhinoplasty and Chin Implant
You look like an excellent candidate for both of these procedures. You are very pretty (skin texture, brow shape, lips, hair) but I can see how your nose and chin imbalance your face. Complications from this should be rare, but would include chin numbness, infection, breathing problems through your nose, bleeding, and scarring. If you could only choose one procedure, do the chin first, but I think both procedures would make a nice difference.
Rhinoplasty and chin implant
A frontal view would help. But definitely a chin implant and perhaps rhinoplasty as well if you are looking for a more defined, refined nose. But just for facial balance a chin implant alone might be sufficient.
Rhinoplasty and Chin Implant - good combination
I think you are an excellent candidate for rhinoplasty and chin implant. I would expect that you would find a board certified plastic surgeon or facial plastic surgeon in your area who does a good number of these operations each year and discuss the risks, benefits, potential complications, and the outcomes you might get from these procedures.
Rhinoplasty Chin Implant
From the photographs your chin could be more prominent. I presume your back teeth fit together and you do not have an overbite.
You will need in person assessment and imaging to insure the changes you are requesting you will like. Perhaps a smaller nose and more projected chin would significantly hep your profile. How much chin augmentation and how much nasal reduction you will like will depend on the imaging.
Your surgeon will review the pros, cons, limitations, as well as the complications which are rare.

You may very well be a candidate for a rhinoplasty and chin implant but you will need a proper evaluation in person.
