Will Otoplasty, Rhinoplasty and Chin Augmentation Improve My Facial Profile?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I am 21 years old and I bit unhappy about my profile…I was thinking about doing something on my chin,nose and ears what would you recommend me. I have sent you some recent pictures of me.

A: In answer to your questions, You would benefit by any three of the procedures that you described.

1) Your ears do stick out the left more than the right. A setback otoplasty would be very effective.

2) Your nose is very ‘juvenile’ in shape with a low dorsum and a soft amorphous round tip. An augmentative rhinoplasty to build up the bridge, give the tip more projection but also narrow it would give your nose a more defined structure.

3) Your chin is short both horizontally and vertically. A sliding genioplasty or a combined horizontal/vertical lengthening chin implant would make your profile more balanced and proportionate for a male.

I have attached some imaging which reflects these proposed changes.
