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: What Can Be Done to Improve the Appearance of my Nose? (Photos Provided)
I dislike the flat, boxy tip of my nose and the fact that it seems to have very defined edges like a cube. I'm wondering if it's possible to have the part overhanging my septum partly removed and reshaped, making the septum appear thinner and the tip rounder. I also wonder if it's possible to have the boxy edges literally shaved off. How possible would it be for my nose to be shaped more like Winona Ryder's, pointier, more graceful nose? Thank you for your help.

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Need larger photos!
Hi,

It does appear from the photos that your tip can be improved. Your photos, however, are far too small for a surgeon to see good detail. Post larger ones, and I'd be happy to make a morph showing what you could look like with a good rhinoplasty. Click the "Web reference" link for a before and after of a patient who had a nose perhaps similar in some features to yours.
