I’ve heard that chin implant surgery and rhinoplasty are often combined. How does getting a chin implant help with the appearance of the nose?
It’s all about balance. What often appears to be an overly projected or large nose in profile is not due to nasal size but a weak chin. Excessive reduction of the nose will not improve the profile and will make the face even more distorted. Enhancing the chin balances the nose and creates the illusion of reduction by putting things in balance. This is easily seen with preoperative computer imaging.
