Many of the books that talk about classic proportions of the face describe how strong the chin should be.  Here's the guideline most books mention: on the profile view, find the lowest point on the lower lip where you would place lipstick.  Draw a line vertically down from that point.  The chin should come forward to touch that line.

However, guidelines are just guidelines.  Put a ruler on your computer screen, and you'll see that, even in the after picture, her chin doesn't come forward to that theoretical line.  And we would not want to make her chin any stronger than it already is.  Often, the best surgical plan is to attempt a good improvement, and not strive for some generalized goal that might not work on everyone.

Questioner: Can rhinoplasty fix my narrow and long nose?
How extensive of a procedure will it take to correct my nose? What options are there as far as shaping out there for me? What shape would compliment my facial structure?
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: You are a somewhat typical candidate for a rhinoplasty
The operation wouldn't be more extensive than an "average" rhinoplasty, although I consider all rhinoplasties fairly "extensive."

I think most people, if they had your nose and were of a mind to change it, would consider lowering the bump on the bridge, narrowing the tip a small amount, elevating the tip up a small amount, and deprojecting the tip -- that is, bringing the entire nose back closer to your face.
