Views of this rhinoplasty patient:

Image size is small
show larger

Her long nose required elevating the tip, taking down a hump, and shortening the nose.  But she had another operation, too.  She had a chin augmentation, to make her weak chin appear stronger.

In a chin augmentation, an implant is placed in front of the jaw bone to bring the chin forward.  Bringing the chin forward at the same time as making the nose smaller puts the face in better balance.  The profile gets an improvement that the rhinoplasty alone couldn't achieve.

Questioner: By looking at these photos of my nose do you think I would be a good candidate for a non surgical nose job?
And if so what has to be done is it possible to make it look smaller because I don't want it to look bigger then what it is
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Non-surgical nose job? Oh god, no.
A non-surgical nose job:
1) can **only** make a nose larger
2) is almost *never* a good idea.

I know there's lots of writing about non-surgical nose jobs out there, but really, 99.99999% of it should be ignored.

You have a hump and a tip that projects strongly forward from your face. Those features are correctable only with a surgical rhinoplasty.

Hope that helps!
