EXPERT Q&A

Q: If I am getting a nose job, do I have to consider augmenting or reducing my chin as well for balance?

What our experts say:

The nose and chin have an important cosmetic relationship in the face, particularly with regard to the profile appearance. A small chin can make a nose look larger and vice-versa. The most common scenario in which chin work is done in the same setting as rhinoplasty is when one has a large nose and a small chin. In this type of case, a reduction rhinoplasty and a chin augmentation will be performed to provide better balance to the face.
