Is there anyway to shorten a long face?
- Cheek augmentation with cheek implants to create cheeks that are full and round anteriorly (in the front) that can feminize the entire face.
- Chin augmentation with a chin implant to provide harmony and balance to the lower face.
- Rhinoplasty to reduce the dorsal hump, refine and re-shape the nose to a more naturally attractive shape and size.
Shortening Long Faces
Short upper lip
Short distance between the chin and mouth
Large eyes, widely spaced apart
I provide this information so that you realize your face is not a collection of individual features but rather a whole entity where the interaction of the features influences the way you are perceived.
The short answer is yes, it is possible to change the way your face is long. I suggest you consult a board certified facial plastic surgeon to receive the highest quality knowledge, treatment, care and skill available.
Rhinoplasty and chin reduction
you have a good potential for improvement via
Rhinoplasty +\_ chin reduction !
