If you have a small, receding chin that seems out of balance with your other facial features, you may be a candidate for chin augmentation. Chin augmentation involves placing a biocompatible implant within the bone structure of your lower jaw to enhance its length and width. Chin implants are capable of providing more definition and volume in the lower third of your face, making your jawline appear “stronger.”
You may be surprised by how much a chin augmentation changes the overall appearance of your face. For example, many people notice that their nose – which used to appear too large or too long – seems more proportionate after chin implants. Some patients choose to combine chin augmentation with neck liposuction and/or rhinoplasty to obtain the best results.
We can help you visualize how each procedure would affect your facial appearance, and develop a personalized approach that best meets your needs. If you are considering chin augmentation, your jaw and teeth must be functioning properly in order for the surgery to be successful. During a personal consultation, we will review your medical history and examine your facial structure to determine whether or not a chin augmentation is the best treatment option for you.
