Rhinoplasty or chin enhancement?
Do you need rhinoplasty or chin enhancement? This is a question only an experienced facial plastic surgeon can answer. The nose is right in the middle of the face, but as a feature its role is more to complement the other features than to act as the center of attention. It’s easy to make the mistake of thinking the nose is too big when actually the chin is too small. Get expert opinion on whether you need rhinoplasty or chin enhancement.
Signs that a nose job might be in order are that a nose doesn’t just look big, but has a deviated septum, a bulbous or downward-pointing tip, a hump on the bridge or nostrils flared to the point where the nose is wider at its widest point than the space between the eyes. Psychologists have found that even patients who have had very minor changes made to their nose have found that it lets them stop obsessing over the subject.
If you need a chin implant, the surgeon will first select or make the implant. Then the surgeon makes an incision under your chin where it can’t be seen, creates a pocket on your chin bone and inserts the implant. Five to six days later, it’s time to remove your sutures. There may be swelling and bruising around the chin and neck. This lasts for a week to ten days. There may also be some temporary stiffness when smiling or talking.
