Chin Augmentation

What is a Chin Augmentation?

Surgical implants can alter the underlying structure of the face, providing better balance to the facial features. This operation is often, but not always, performed at the time of rhinoplasty to help balance the facial proportions

Why get Chin Augmentation?

If you have a weak chin it can make a normal nose appear large and an already prominent nose seem even larger. It may also give the appearance of a ‘fleshy’ neck. On the other hand, a too prominent chin may give the appearance of having too small of a nose or otherwise throwing the face off balance. The end result should be a balanced relationship within the structure of the face.

Who is a good candidate for Chin Augmentation?

The best candidates for chin augmentation cosmetic surgery are patients with weak or receding chins, but who have a normal dental bite. Candidates must be realistic. Facial implants can improve and enhance facial contours, but they won’t make you look “perfect.” A strong angular facial framework does allow a more favorable aging appearance. The primary indication for using facial implants is a weak or deficient facial skeleton.
