Your facial profile is a distinct feature of your appearance. One that is strong and defined is seen as the ideal sign of beauty for many women. If your features are soft or unbalanced, this can throw off the overall aesthetic of your face. Addressing an imbalance of facial features will give you better proportions and an overall younger, more attractive appearance. If you want to refine your profile, rhinoplasty with a chin augmentation is an effective way to provide more definition to your facial appearance. While both procedures can address issues with the proportion of your facial features, Dr. Hochstein can help bring you a more balanced profile by performing both surgeries together.
The nose is the centerpiece of your face. With its prominent placement, the shape and size significantly impact your profile. Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that addresses a nasal appearance that is too big or too small or has a shape that does not fit in with the rest of your features. Dr. Hochstein will adjust the size of your nose by removing cartilage to attain the desired size. This surgery will give your face a more natural symmetry, so your features are more proportionate. Dr. Hochstein can also adjust the shape, if necessary, to give you a more beautifully contoured nose. Rhinoplasty is the most effective way to address the physical imperfections of your nose while improving the aesthetics of your face and profile. The nose can also have a substantial impact on the appearance of your jawline, and if it’s not balanced with your chin, your jaw may appear weak and undefined. The perfect complement to your rhinoplasty is a chin augmentation.
A chin augmentation (also known as mentoplasty or genioplasty) involves the placement of a silicone implant directly beneath the skin of the chin. It can be performed as a solo procedure, but it provides a better balance for your features if completed in conjunction with rhinoplasty. Multiple factors affect the look of the chin that causes it to appear weak or unbalanced with the rest of the face. But, if you do not have a nicely contoured chin, it can blend in with your lower face and make it appear as if you have no definition to your face. Dr. Hochstein’s expertise with this procedure will make it so that you regain clear contours and a better-defined profile.
Both procedures done in conjunction with each other can dramatically alter the structure of your profile and create the foundation of a strong face. By addressing the size of your nose, and matching it with an appropriate chin implant, Dr. Hochstein can give you a more striking profile.
