It is not uncommon for patients seeking a nose job to also undergo chin augmentation. At Advanced Cosmetic Surgery of New York, our rhinoplasty NYC surgeons will analyze the nose as the well as the facial profile to determine if chin augmentation can be beneficial when combined with rhinoplasty.
Many of our nose job NY patients who come in looking to have a large nose reduced realize after consultation that they actually have a small or receding chin that contributes to the large appearance of the nose.
By augmenting the chin with a chin implant, the facial balance and profile can be improved, often with less modification to the nose.
Benefits of Chin Augmentation and Nose Job
Profileplasty is a term often refers to procedures which balance the nose and chin. These two features are very closely related and can have a large impact on the appearance of each other. A large nose may appear larger if it is paired with a weak or small chin, which in turn may appear even more receding due to the large appearance of the nose.
By bringing the chin and nose into balance with a combined chin augmentation, our nose job NY surgeons can dramatically improve not only the profile but the overall facial harmony and balance as well. Our rhinoplasty NYC patients find the combination of these two procedures to be very rewarding.
Profileplasty and Chin Augmentation
Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure which improves the appearance of the nose, addressing such issues as a wide or crooked appearance, wide nostrils, bulbous tip, nasal hump and more.
Chin augmentation, also known as mentoplasty, adds prominence to a small or retruding chin using a chin implant which is inserted over the jawbone through a small incision made beneath the chin.
These procedures may be performed together using either local anesthesia or general anesthesia. Patients are typically able to return to work and other normal activities within about two weeks.
