Getting a Nose Job? Why You Should Consider a Chin Augmentation, Too

If you’re one of the hundreds of thousands of people who consider a nose job each year, you might be thinking about this procedure for a number of reasons. Of the more than 200,000 people who got nose jobs in 2018, some chose it to improve their breathing through their nose, but many people did it to improve their appearance. 

If you’re in the latter category, talk to Norman J. Pastorek, MD, PC, FACS, before you schedule your procedure. In many cases, combining your nose job (also called a rhinoplasty) with chin augmentation is the best way to give you the profile improvement you’re wanting. 

At our office, Dr. Pastorek, Janice Pastorek, BSN, RN, and our committed team are available to talk with you about your cosmetic surgery options so you can pick the path that’s right for you. But if you’re thinking about a nose job, here are a couple of reasons why you might want to consider a chin augmentation alongside it. 

You get a more balanced profile

When you change the shape and size of your nose, you transform your face. While a rhinoplasty alone can certainly improve your appearance, many people find that after they change their nose, they notice other things about their face. 

This is especially true if you want to alter your nose to change your facial profile. To truly give yourself the best, most balanced profile, you may need to make adjustments beyond your nose. Fortunately, Dr. Pastorek can include a chin augmentation to ensure you get stunning results from your procedures. With chin augmentation, he can place an FDA-approved chin implant — which looks and feels completely natural — to make sure your chin projection matches your nose. 

You minimize downtime

Many people don’t consider chin augmentation until after their nose job. At this point, they have to get a separate procedure, and wait through the resulting downtime it takes to heal, before they can truly enjoy the profile they wanted. When you get your chin augmentation with your nose job, you only have a single recovery period, and you emerge afterward with your perfect profile. 

If you think you have any interest in chin augmentation, don’t hesitate to ask Dr. Pastorek about it. He can show you implants in different sizes to give you an idea of your overall face shape with the chin augmentation. This way, you can get a feel for the way your chin augmentation will change your profile before committing to the procedure. 

Dr. Pastorek has performed over 7,000 rhinoplasty surgeries and has extensive experience combining these nose jobs with chin augmentations to give his patients their ideal results. If you think you might be interested in a nose job, chin augmentation, or both procedures together,  contact our office, located in New York City’s Upper East Side of Manhattan. Call Norman J. Pastorek, MD, PC, FACS, or make your appointment online today.
