I hate my profile as my chin is quite delicate, and my nose is fairly prominent. Would rhinoplasty help in my case?

Rhinoplasty and chin augmentation questions?
Nose and chin refinement.
Wow, you look great!
You have a short vertical height to your chin, the vertical distance from your lips to the bottom of your chin. That is a very good and feminizing feature to have. The outline of your jaw and your cheekbones are also excellent.
The only thing I can't see is the prominence of your nose on profile view, because the profile photo is too small. With a much larger photo, I might be able to give you advice on that view and make a computer morph.
But please, please don't let someone start carving your forehead or putting fillers or implants around your face. If your nose truly is prominent, then you could consider a rhinoplasty. Even though the rhinoplasty is the most difficult operation for a surgeon to learn and perform competently, predicting how a change in the nose can improve the face is much more straightforward than, for example, predicting whether a cheek implant will help or even hurt, or whether a forehead or hairline operation will help or just leave you with scars you'd hate.
I think you look much, much better than your posting suggests. Go slowly. Check out your nose. Only deal with surgeons who have lots and lots of nice before and afters, and don't let anyone talk you into anything.

The question you ask is a very good one. On front view you have very good facial harmony The weakness of the chin and the prominence of the nose on your profile make each feature appear more "prominent" and "small" in relation to each other. Conservative profile reduction and appropriate chin augmentation would improve your profile harmony and minimally affect the frontal view.

Nose - chin facial balance
Nasal cosmetic surgery and a chin implant are frequently performed together in the appropriate patient. The ideal aesthetic result should be individualized to achieve harmony with your other facial features and improve the areas that concern you.
Keep in mind that following advice from a surgeon on this or any other website who proposes to tell you what to do based on two dimensional photos without examining you, physically feeling your tissue, assessing your desired outcome, taking a full medical history and discussing the pros and cons of the operative procedure would not be in your best interest. Natural appearing results need to be individualized and what is appropriate for one patient is not necessarily the best for someone else. I would suggest that you find a surgeon with extensive rhinoplasty experience certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and one who is ideally a member of The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) or Canadian Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (CSAPS) that you trust and are comfortable with. You should discuss your concerns with that surgeon in person. The extent and length of the procedure, cost, and the specific operative steps to achieve an ideal cosmetic result vary from patient to patient and would depend on the findings at your consultation examination.

Rhinoplasty candidate, some advices:
The harmony between facial parts makes us instinctively recognize the beauty... without knowing it, without defining it, just a perception that surprises and captivates us.
In this regard, I suggest perform a Closed Rhinoplasty (without visible scars) to treat the tip, base and nasal bridge.
With this procedure you get a delicate nose, better harmonize with your other facial features.
