Combining Rhinoplasty and Chin Augmentation Gives Great Results!*

Procedure Details

This young woman came to Dr. Kridel hoping to improve her breathing and the hump on her nose. She also thought a chin augmentation might improve her profile. After undergoing a rhinoplasty, septoplasty, and chin augmentation, she is thrilled with the appearance of her nose and chin and is breathing great! It is very common that patients combine a chin implant with cosmetic nose surgery, known as rhinoplasty. A weak chin can give the appearance of a larger nose or a shorter neckline. For some patients, due to genetics, trauma or malformation, cosmetic alteration of the nose or chin alone does not provide the optimal facial proportion a patient desires. During the consultation, we will complete a thorough evaluation, including digital photo imaging, to determine if chin surgery, as well as rhinoplasty, is needed to achieve maximum facial harmony.
