I am frequently asked if you can feel the implant underneath the skin.  It's difficult, unless you know exactly what you're feeling for.  I tell my patients that they know they've forgotten about their implant the first time they find themselves in a boring meeting, resting their elbow on the table and their chin on the palm.  You can press on the implant like that and not realize it isn't you.

Questioner: Are my expectations for my desired Rhinoplasty results unreasonable?
I'm getting a rhinoplasty in 2 weeks and am really hoping for a specific result. I know everyone is different in terms of what's reasonable but in your opinion, is what I want do-able? I've posted photos of myself and also of what I'm hoping for...
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Improvement is possible for your nose, and the posted before-and-after is a great result.
Hi,
You do appear to be an excellent candidate for a rhinoplasty. As I see it, the goals would be to lower the hump, narrow the bridge and tip of the nose, raise the tip some amount, and definitely bring the entire nose back closer to the face.
Be sure you have seen many of your doctor's before and after photos, of other patients who had the same kinds of changes that you want for yourself. Yours is a difficult rhinoplasty, requiring advanced techniques, and most plastic surgeons would not be able to handle it well. Board certification diplomas tell you almost nothing about a doctor's skill in this field.
Also, I guess I have to disagree with some of the other posters about whether you need a chin implant. Your chin is very short vertically: measuring on the profile view from your lips vertically down to the bottom of the chin. That's a great, great feminine feature to have, and to my eye, it means that your chin doesn't have to project as far forward as it might on someone else. Further, just as a chin implant can make a nose look smaller, a reduction rhinoplasty can make the chin look a little bigger, and I think you'd look fine without the implant.
