Beverly Hill Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery “Tip of the Day” from Dr. Francis R Palmer, III: Rhinoplasty and Chin Implants to balance the face and improve your overall appearance.
# 7 on the Holiday Glam list: Rhinoplasty and Chin Augmentation to balance the face and improve your appearance. Rhinoplasty should offer a more refined but not operated look to the nose. The various parts of the nose (tip, supratip, midsection and nasal bones) can be modified and refined using various plastic surgery techniques. This is however the most aesthetically and technically challenging plastic and cosmetic surgery procedure requiring years of training and experience to master. Rhinoplasty and the more technically difficult Revision Rhinoplasty continue to be one of the most popular plastic surgery procedure performed.
Ah, but what about the chin. The chin allows balance to the face on front and profile views and often is overlooked when analyzing the nose. If the chin is weak, on profile, it’s a good time to consider chin augmentation with a chin implant at the same time the Rhinoplasty is being performed. I prefer oplacement of the chin implant (I only use Silastic Implants) through a small incision under the chin and placement of the implant itself directly on the bone. I feel this gives the best results.
