This 45-year-old patient had always been self-conscious about the shape of her nose. She felt that her dorsal hump detracted from her other delicate facial features. She was looking for a nose with a straight nasal dorsum and a tip that was more refined and lifted.
She met with Dr. Antunes at his Facial Plastic Surgery Practice in Austin, Texas, for a consultation to discuss her options. During the exam, Dr. Antunes performed computer image morphing to determine the patient’s goals with her rhinoplasty. During her consultation, Dr. Antunes explained the importance of the chin-nose relationship when balancing the nasal profile and demonstrated what the addition of a chin implant could do for her result.
The patient is shown here 1 year after her rhinoplasty and chin implant. She is thrilled with the results and feels that the chin implant made a bigger difference than she even thought it was going to. She said that nobody has noticed that she had surgery and feels her nose looks feminine and natural, and that the procedure even made her look younger.
