When jowls start to form, the lower part of the frontal view of the face
starts to develop a "square" look. Imagine a line that starts at the
bottom of her left ear, and runs to the left jowl, across to the right jowl, and
then up to the bottom of the right ear. Kind of a square. In the
after picture, our eye follows from the bottom of one ear, to the center of the
chin, and back to the bottom of the other ear. More of a triangle.

Do I need rhinoplasty/chin implant to get desired look?
I want to fix hump and biggest issue is how long it looks. Would rhinoplasty fix this? Does the tip look like it needs to be fixed?When i look straight ahead I feel like nose looks to wide esp when I smile. Would doing a chin implant at the same time as rhinoplasty help my face look more even and aligned? I think my chin looks weak, or would using something such as fillers in the lips make my profile look better and everything aligned? I included examples of what I want my nose to look like.

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Rhinoplasty can help, but I like your chin as it is now
You have that gentle hump on the bridge, and a tip that could be elevated to make your nose more like the example photos. In the right hands, these are realistic goals for a rhinoplasty. See the Web reference link for an example.
I wouldn't recommend a chin implant. You have a tall chin with good strength, and an implant would draw too much attention to the chin.
