This 39-year-old San Diego woman didn't like how the large hump on her nose imbalanced her profile. She wanted a more average-looking slope and shape of her nose that would not draw attention away from her other features. Wanting to improve her nasal and facial contour overall, she began looking for a San Diego rhinoplasty specialist to discuss her concerns with. After some consideration and research, she decided to schedule a consultation with Dr. Chaffoo to discover what his years of experience could do to help her balance her profile.

During her consultation, Dr. Chaffoo examined the shape of her nose and explained what he could to create a smoother, more gradual slope. He also noted her weak chin which could be improved by a chin implant. Dr. Chaffoo could perform her rhinoplasty using two different incision methods: either with a "closed" incision inside of the nostrils or an "open" incision between the nostrils. Dr. Chaffoo could easily reshape the bone and cartilage in the nose to give her the profile she wanted.

After her surgery was completed, she came back to our San Diego plastic surgery office for a follow up appointment, where these postoperative photos were taken. In these photos, her nose has a much smoother and less prominent curve and shows no visible signs of surgery. She was delighted with the improved projection of her chin and more balanced facial features. When asked how she felt about her new nose, she said it was exactly what she wanted and was very pleased with the results.
