I have always known about my weak jawline and I always wondered if there was a way to fix it. My lower jaw slants in at a steep angle right below my cheekbone, and I've never seen a guy like me anywhere, along with what I think is a weak chin. Also, I just recently noticed that one of my nostrils appears to be malformed. Is it possible to make nostrils symmetrical and give me a stronger jawline and chin? Any help is appreciated, thanks.
Options for a Weak Jawline and Asymmetrical Nose?

Chin implant and rhinoplasty for weak jawline and asymmetric nose
A weak jaw line is best improved through a chin implant. This synthetic implant is made of silastic and through a submental incision, is placed over the bone. It gives anterior projection to the chin and a much stronger profile to the chin. There are some improvements to the nose through a rhinoplasty procedure that can be performed to address nostril asymmetry, such as composite grafts, weirs, alar reductions, and tip cartilage grafts depending on needs, issues, and desires of the patient.
