Jaws are very weak and I would like to know what will improve my side and front profiles?
I have found that placement of a silastic chin implant, through a small curved incision under the chin (also allows excess skin removal) to be very safe, quick, highly effective and far less invasive than a sliding genioplasty. I perform chin implant surgery in 30 minutes or less, often using a local anesthetic alone.
Following the beauty principles outlined in my book on face and body beauty, women look the most feminine, youthful and attractive with heart shaped faces. Heart shaped faces have cheeks that are full and round in the front. Cheek augmentation with a dermal filler or using cheek implants for a permanent enhancement will create full, round cheeks that will feminize the entire face. Rhinoplasty can refine the nasal size and shape.
Hope this helps.

Thanks for your question.
Most patients who've had braces and extractions have some level of imbalance between the upper and lower face segments.
You are no different.
The most obvious area of disharmony is in the area of your jawline and small chin. If you teeth fit normally after the orthodontic treatment, then a chin implant procedure would be a great option to rebalance your small jaw.
If you are bothered by the nasolabial folds, a conservative amount of injectable filler could be used to soften any heavy lines or folds.
If after these two procedures, you still feel that your nose is too big, then a reductive rhinoplasty could be used to reduce and reposition the nose to create more harmony on profile view.
I would recommend that you consult with a facial surgery specialist for more information.
Costs would run in the $4000-5000 range.
If you add a rhinoplasty procedure, you will add another $6000-10,000 to the cost.
I've included a link to a video on how to choose a good plastic surgeon.

There is nothing wrong with your nasolabial folds.
You would have to ask a local surgeon for costs.
Here it would be in the US$5,000 range.
