I’ve heard that rhinoplasty is often combined with chin augmentation. Why is this? What is the benefit and is it safe to perform the two procedures at the same time?
I perform a great deal of rhinoplasty surgery. Quite frequently a patient will present for rhinoplasty surgery, who also has a weak chin. During the preoperative consultation while viewing photos, we will see that the chin is weak. Using computer imaging I am able to show the patient what the effects of a chin implant will have on the overall appearance of the face. In the proper candidate, a chin implant in combination with a rhinoplasty will bring the face into proper balance. These two procedures may be performed at the same time and frequently are.
