Hello, Thank you for the photos and questions. What you desire can definitely be achieved. I would suggest to book in a consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Choose one with many before and after photos of patients with similar noses to your own. Research is always key!
We wish you the best of luck.
Rhinoplasty and chin implant
Your bridge can be made smaller and your tip can be refined. A small chin implant would also work. Computerized imaging will help make a decision. Best wishes.

Your photos suggest that you are a good candidate for cosmetic rhinoplasty and consideration for chin augmentation to better balance your profile. Meet with an ABPS board-certified plastic surgeon or facial plastic surgeon in your area for a face-to-face consultation. This will provide you the best advice and the opportunity to review before-and-after photos of other patients. Best wishes and good luck.

A rhinoplasty procedure can accomplish shaving down the dorsal hump, narrowing the bridge line, and reducing the bulbous tip. The tip can also be raised slightly when needed. A chin implant can be performed at the same time as the rhinoplasty procedure under general anesthesia. Chin implants are manufactured in a large variety of sizes and shapes, and are placed through a small incision underneath the chin. In our practice, we perform chin implants using Implantech silastic pre- jowl chin implants with an excellent success rate for over 25 years. The chin implant in the rhinoplasty procedure can be performed together, or separately depending upon the patient's desires. Digital computer imaging be helpful to get an idea of what a chin implant and a rhinoplasty procedure would look like on your facial features.
