Proportionate Face

Dear 2130anon,

Rest assured, there are remedies to your concerns. I suggest you consult a board certified facial plastic surgeon to receive the highest-quality treatment, care, knowledge and surgical skill available. Rhinoplasty and chin implants are a possibility. Keep in mind that the most beautiful face is one with proportionate features. It has been proven that the following features comprise an attractive female face:
Short upper lip
High cheekbones
Small nose
Short distance between the chin and mouth
Large eyes, widely spaced apart
Fine jawline
Petite chin

More proportional face with rhinoplasty and chin implant

You have a slightly bulbous tip that can be made thinner and narrower to further refine your facial features. The remainder of the nose appears normal so you may need just a tip-plasty. As far as your chin goes, it is impossible to say what the projection is, but it does appear to be quite narrow in the pre-jowl sulcus area. If your chin projection is adequate, then a pre-jowl implant made by Implantech would be the best option for you. If you have retrusion of your chin as well as a weak pointed chin, a Mittelman pre-jowl chin implant made by Implantech is recommended. These come in small, medium, and large sizes. The sizing of the implant would be determined during a consultation.

The face can be made more proportional.

This is one the the keys to excellent plastic surgery that appears natural. The tip of your nose is bulbous and can be refined. I'd have to see a profile view to evaluate the at aspect of the surgery. Your chin would look more proportional if you had either prejowl implants or a combined chin-prejowl implant. See an experienced surgeon and let him guide you to your best options.

Making the Face More Proportional with Rhinoplasty and Chin Surgery


Your nose has a bulbous tip that can be refined with rhinoplasty.  Your chin appears to be pointed and may be improved with a pre-jowl implant.  Best to consult with qualified facial plastic or plastic surgeons to get a few "in person" opinions.

Good luck and be well.

Proportional face

Without a photo, it is not possible to say anything here.  I'd advise you to either re-submit with photos or go to some plastic surgeons for a consult and their advice.
