Thank you for your question and photographs. From the look of your photos, I believe you would be a good candidate for a Rhinoplasty and Chin/Jaw Augmentation along with neck liposuction. It is important when looking for a plastic surgeon to find one who is board certified. To fully evaluate your nose, I would recommend you schedule a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in rhinoplasty and have a full facial and nasal examination performed. However, from what I can tell, it appears your tip is enlarged and bulbous. You would benefit from a tip rhinoplasty which includes trimming the lower lateral cartilages and placing precision sutures to refine the tip and make it look more pleasing and smaller in size. In regards to your jaw, I would suggest jaw and chin implants to give you a more squared jaw and projecting chin to match your nose projection. The excess fat under your chin also referred to as a “double chin” can be reduced by liposuction or PCDC (fat dissolving) injections. I hope this helps.
Good luck in your endeavors!

Consultation is best idea
by looking at your photographs, you may benefit from chin augmentation and a subtle rhinoplasty. A great idea would be to meet with your surgeon and show him what displeases you, so your surgeon can show you what is possible.
