Most people undergo rhinoplasty (nose surgery) because they are frustrated with the way their nose protrudes from their face, throwing off the balance of their entire facial profile. While the nose is definitely the main problem in most cases, you may not realize just how much the position of your chin can affect the appearance of your nose and the rest of your face.
If your chin is in an ideal position, it will make your nose seem smaller, and contribute to a more balanced facial aesthetic overall. On the other hand, if the chin is in a “retrusive” position that does not protrude very far, your nose will end up looking bigger than it actually is.
Because of this unique aesthetic relationship between your chin and your nose, chin augmentation is often combined with rhinoplasty to achieve the best possible results. During your rhinoplasty consultation, NYC plastic surgeon Dr. Lefkovits will discuss how a chin implant may improve your final look. Chin augmentation and rhinoplasty naturally go together in many cases.
