Nose deprojection and blepharoplasty implant?
Thank you for your question.
The first thing that strikes me is that you are very young and really should not worry yourself about some the issues you have mentioned.
If I were to suggest any procedure that would help restore harmony and balance to your face, it would be an osseous genioplasty. A genioplasty allows the chin to be moved forwards, sideways and downwards. In your case, from the profile view that you have provided, it would seem that your chin is a little bit small and sits backwards. This is known as retrognathia. If your chin were moved forward by about 6mm, that would tremendously improve your facial balance.
Hope that helps.
Nose deprojection and blephoplasty? Chin implant? What should I do??

I feel my face is unbalanced. My nose I feel is too pinched and projected and I feel my face looks tired with loss of volume.
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.
A weak chin creates an imbalance making the nose appear larger, the mid face top heavy and the lower face look short that de-emphasizes the lips and allows early formation of a double chin. Chin augmentation using a chin implant will add projection to the chin creating harmony and balance to the lower face. 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 and highly effective. In the off chance that the nasal tip still appears over-projected, once the chin is properly augmented and balanced, a limited procedure (does not require a full Rhinoplasty) can be performed on the nasal tip to reduce the projection.
This is a perfect example of where a Rhinoplasty or manipulation of the nose itself would "not" create a more feminine, heart shaped face. This requires an adjustment to the cheeks and chin, not the nose.
Hope this helps.
Thank you for your question. I think you could be a great candidate for a couple procedures but I wouldn't recommend any kind of implant for under the eye or thread lifting. I would recommend adding a chin implant to give you more definition and give you a better balance to your profile. If you like the look of filler you could consider doing a fat transfer instead. Your surgeon would harvest your own fat from the abdomen, flanks or thigh area and transfer it to those areas of your face. Using your own fat can provide a very natural look and typically the fat will last, where a filler lasts between 10 months & a couple of years. A Rhinoplasty could also be an option for you if the projection of your nose is one of your concerns. Take your time and find a board certified surgeon to consult with. I would also look at before and after photos to help make a decision.
Rejuvenating your nose and face
You would benefit from a small chin implant. You would benefit from either non-surgical rhinoplasty to build up the bridge and radix to reduce the over projected appearance of the tip or a good structural rhinoplasty to make the tip less projected. In either case the bridge and radix do need to be elevated slightly. You would also benefit from fillers to the upper cheeks to give you more of a heart shaped youthful face. But there is nothing wrong with your eyelids or face.
