The Chin and Nose Correlation

The facial features all impact each other and contribute to the harmony and balance of the face. When a nose looks too large or overbearing, it is not always due to its actual size. The chin shape can drastically impact the appearance of the nose. This chin and nose correlation are important when striving to create a balanced appearance to the face. If a chin looks too small or a nose looks too large, it may require adjustments to one or both to create a balanced face.

Correcting Facial Balance with Chin Enhancement

A nose can appear too large due to a receded or weak chin. When the jaw is smaller, it pronounces other features like the nose and forehead. Often, enhancing the chin can balance the features. A chin enhancement procedure can change the shape of the face to make the nose look smaller.

A chin enhancement can be accomplished with a few different procedures. In some cases, facial fillers can be used to temporarily change the shape of the chin. Permanent options require plastic surgery. Usually a chin implant or bone grafting is used to reshape the chin and jawline, balancing the face shape and other features.

Rhinoplasty for Facial Harmony

If the nose is too large, rhinoplasty can be used to reduce the size and reshape the nose. This can help balance the face, even making a chin look more pronounced. If a combination of a weak chin and larger nose are present, a dual procedure of a chin implant and nose reduction may be needed to create the desired result.

If you feel like your nose is too large or your chin is receded, consult a facial plastic surgeon. Rhinoplasty, chin enhancement or a combination of both may offer solutions to create attractive balance in your facial features.
