Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery

Face it. The Right Balance for the Right Patient.

Simultaneous Rhinoplasty and Chin Augmentation at The Lucas Center Earns A Nearly 100% Patient Satisfaction Rate.

Do you obsess over a larger nose than you’d like? Do you feel insecure about a weak, recessed chin, that even makes your neck appear fleshy? Men and women both suffer from nose and/or chin imperfections that bother them enough to undermine their self-confidence every day. Fortunately, there are plastic surgery solutions. 

Nose or Chin Solutions.

Nose reshaping. Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that changes the size, shape and structure of the nose.  According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), rhinoplasty was one of the Top 5 Cosmetic Surgical Procedures in 2019, with statistics showing 200,000+ procedures were performed. Rhinoplasty can reduce a prominent bump on the top of the nose, adjust the nasal tip in size and shape, correct a crooked bridge and/or a deviated septum, and provide a more proportional nasal appearance with the rest of the face.

Chin reshaping. Chin augmentation is surgery to reshape the size of the chin, by inserting an implant or by moving or reshaping bones. It can reduce a double chin caused by a small chin bone, improve jawline and neck definition, correct a recessed chin and improve facial harmony.  According to the ASPS,  57% of chin augmentation procedures in 2019 were performed on men and 43% on women. 

BUT, sometimes, the right solution is not a case of either nose OR chin.  It’s both.  

Simultaneous Rhinoplasty and Chin Augmentation

The key to any successful facial surgery is in the initial diagnostic analysis performed by the plastic surgeon. It’s all about understanding the anatomy and ensuring balancing of all facial structures keeping them in a pleasing proportion. Dr. Lucas, with his extensive educational background in both dental and medical training combined with his craniofacial surgery fellowship at Stanford University, has the correct knowledge set to make the determination of what procedures should be incorporated to achieve a beautiful transformation outcome. His twenty years of clinical experience leads to making the correct assessments to ensure satisfaction.

It is Dr. Lucas’s experience that patients who present for rhinoplasty consultations who describe their noses as being too large may also have a smaller recessive chin/jaw which further enhances the prominence of the nose. In cases such as this employing the simultaneous rhinoplasty in conjunction with a lower chin/jaw enhancement will lead to a synergistic outcome with greater patient satisfaction compared to the rhinoplasty only procedure. Successful outcomes start with appropriate diagnosis and end with excellent execution of the chosen procedures.
