It looks like doing a combination of nose and chin augmentation is actually good for you. A recent study by Italian researchers revealed the efficacy of combining rhinoplasty and genioplasty. Dr. Robert Buchanan performs both North Carolina nose lift and chin augmentation to help you save money and recovery time. Why not hit two birds with one stone at the Center for Plastic Surgery in Highlands, North Carolina?
“Improved Facial Profile with Stable Results”
The study covered 90 patients who simultaneously had both cosmetic procedures between 2002 and 2004. The researchers followed up on the patients for the next 3 years.
Lead researcher Dr. Dario Bertossi, associate professor at the University of Verona Department of Surgery said, “”We can for sure improve facial profile with stable results with rhinoplasty alone, but the association with genioplasty is fundamental and necessary to achieve the best aesthetic result.”
Furthermore, the researchers pointed out that a “nose-chin-neck relationship strongly determines an aesthetically-proportionate face.” This will help explain why individuals with a successful nose job could still end up with a face with not-so-pleasing proportions.
The results of the study were as follows:
“Over three years of follow-up, the researchers found that almost half (45.6 percent) of those who had their chin reduced had no subsequent changes in the new chin.
For those who had chin extensions, 52 percent had a “stable” profile three years later, meaning no more than a millimeter of change, the researchers noted.”
