Plastic surgery is often the answer to those searching for facial balance. Truth be told, whether society norms or media had a hand in it, many of us pursue these aesthetics. These are perfect looks, the perfect style, and we’re willing to go the surgical route to get them.
This isn’t a bad thing, however. Facial balance can improve your esteem and realize one’s potential depending on your goal. This is especially true of rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty, or nose job as more commonly known, shape your nose in a way that compliments your facial features and balances a weak chin. In this article, we’ll dig a little deeper into what a nose job & chin implant can do for your face.
Reasons for Rhinoplasty & Chin Implants
Many people opt for a nose job because they feel their nose is too small, too large, too wide, too flat or out of proportion to their faces. Some before-and-after pictures can show you exactly how much change a nose job gives an individual. When the nose is sculpted, the difference in the entire face is noticeable. However, rhinoplasty isn’t only a cosmetic alteration. Sometimes a rhinoplasty is needed for health reasons, like clearing a nasal blockage or breathing issues.
The most common reasons for a chin implant are to create facial balance or balancing a weak chin. A weak chin may make a face look a tad disproportionate, and when combined with a large nose profile, it only appears more off in terms of balance.
A rhinoplasty & chin implant combo can improve the shape of your nose while balancing out the chin. Prior to having surgery, the individual must consider the frontal view of their face as opposed to their profile. The first thing anyone sees when looking in the mirror, or meeting someone is the full frontal view of their face. This means the proportions of every feature need to be considered. Changing the shape or size of your nose will aesthetically enhance the frontal view, the profile, the nose, and the chin.
A rhinoplasty and chin implant often are performed simultaneously to save the individual both money and time. The cost of the services and medical equipment, as well as the recovery period, are all reduced. This surgery involves each individual’s unique relationship between their neck, chin, and nose.
Considerations to Take
One of the most important considerations prior to having plastic surgery is if the nose is actually too large or appears too large due to a small or weak chin. Sometimes, the nose is too large and can be corrected with surgery. Sometimes the nose is actually in proportion to the rest of the face but appears too large because of the chin. A plastic surgeon can offer several different options to provide a pleasing balance to the face.
If the specialist deems a chin implant necessary, the implant is inserted and positioned in the chin to provide an additional forward projection. This procedure can also add more fullness in front of the jaw. The implants are approved by the FDA, available in a variety of sizes and shapes and constructed of medical grade plastic and silicone. The implant feels a lot like the natural tissue of the body. When plastic surgery is performed for both the nose and chin, it enhances the aesthetic appearance.
How Do I Know This Combination is Right for Me?
The best option is to schedule a consultation to discuss this procedure with an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon. The plastic surgeon will make the determination as to whether or not the individual is a good candidate for this surgery. The surgeon will answer any questions and explain the best options for enhancing the facial contours, strengthening a weak chin and improving the aesthetics and balance of the face. Sometimes computer imaging is used to show the individual what their face would look like after surgery. The majority of plastic surgeons provide before and after photos of previous patients. This showcases a wide variety of looks for the nose and chin to help the individual understand what is possible and which procedure is right for their needs.
