Asian Rhinoplasty & Chin Augmentation for Facial Harmony?

Q: My ‘strong’ nose bothers me. When I smile, it overpowers my other features. Work on my chin can improve my profile. I don’t know if my jaw has to do with anything. My nose has a tall bridge. Would this still be considered Asian rhinoplasty? Will I still need implants for either nose or chin? A more refined nose and improved chin will give me a softer, feminine look.

A: The techniques that would be required depend on what aesthetic you are trying to achieve, but given the height of your dorsum (bridge), you will not need a large amount of extra cartilage.  You will not need a nasal implant, but you may need some cartilage grafts to refine the tip of your nose (from your septum and/or ear).  Alar base modification will soften the width of your nose and nostrils when you smile.  I think you will achieve an excellent result without a chin augmentation.
