Question

I am a 46 year old male and I have always been unhappy with my appearance, and have become more unhappy recently.

I went to see a consultant about getting a rhinoplasty and he said that I should look into getting my jaw looked at because this was contributing to my problem, I have a deep bite.

Do you think having a chin implant would help me?

Answer

Inevitably, you are the best judge as to what aesthetic impact different facial changes may have for you.

I do find that computer imaging and simulation in 2-D and 3-D offers a more personalised appreciation of the effect of different changes and allows people to decide with more depth of knowledge, even though the effect of surgical interventions is never identical to simulations.

It is possible to look at the effect of isolated changes for the nose and for the chin as well as the effect of the combined changes for the nose and the chin.
