I’m planning on getting a rhinoplasty and my doctor recommended that I get a chin implant at the same time. Is it normal and safe for these two procedures to be performed at once? What’s the benefit?
It is normal and recommended if indicated to get a chin implant at the time of the rhinoplasty. The appearance of the nose is related to the size of the chin. A small chin will make the nose look larger. The benefit of performing both of these procedures is that with the enhanced chin the nose will look more balanced. Additionally, by performing the procedures at the same time you will only have to recover once.
