Though the chin is often an overlooked and underestimated facial feature, in reality, it plays a vital role in facial contour. A weak chin can make the nose appear larger, while a strong chin can make the nose appear smaller. The jawline is literally the foundation of one’s face, and chin augmentation can bring your facial features into harmony and balance with one another.
Chin Augmentation Surgery
Chin augmentation begins with an incision in one of two places, either underneath the chin or inside the mouth. Incisions made in the mouth generally have several advantages; most notably, there is no scarring and the healing time is faster. The implant is then positioned over the tip of the chin bone, and the incision is sutured and closed.
Chin augmentation can be performed in conjunction with a number of other facial procedures including facelift, rhinoplasty, or facial liposuction to achieve greater symmetry of the face.
