Should I Get a Chin Implant with Rhinoplasty Surgery?


Should I Get a Chin Implant with Rhinoplasty Surgery?

The main benefit of combining a rhinoplasty with chin augmentation is to ensure facial harmony. Altering the proportion of the nose may impact other facial features, namely the chin, making it appear smaller. You want to be sure the cosmetic surgery procedure you choose does not throw off the balance of your face in an attempt to get a look you want to achieve. Combining procedures helps patients feel confident that their outcome will provide the most natural-looking profile possible. 

A rhinoplasty, also referred to as a nose job, is the re-sculpting of the nose in both size and shape while also, if need be, correcting breathing caused by structural defects in the nose. The width of the bridge of the nose and the nostril size or placement may be improved upon during surgery too. A chin implant, chin augmentation, refines the contour of the chin area to create a more prominent chin or jawline. As a large nose may cause a small or receded chin to look worse or a slimmer nose may cause the chin to look bigger, patients consider combining the 2 procedures to get the best of both. In a combined procedure under the expertise of 1 surgeon, patients can rest assured that the proportional aesthetic changes will result in a profile makeover they will be proud to have.

Added benefits of getting a chin implant with a rhinoplasty surgery are also downtime and cost benefits. In addition to potential cost savings, safely undergoing both procedures at the same time means you can recover from both simultaneously. Neither recovery is easy, and both require a lot of rest since swelling reduction is gradual, generally taking 4 to 6 weeks before it subsides. Both rhinoplasty and chin augmentation results take quite some time too, usually between 6 to 12 months before final results take effect. 

Combining a chin implant with a rhinoplasty surgery is the best way to maximize your time, budget and results. Re-alignment of the facial framework provides dramatic results. Trust your surgery options to the right plastic surgeon.
