Chin Implants can improve upon any chin-associated woe: from reducing a jutting jaw to adding weight to an unbalanced/tapered face and drawing attention away from a particularly undefined neck. Whether it is a case of chin reduction or embellishment, there is a surgical solution at your fingertips.
Those in pursuit of a more ‘masculine’ aesthetic might seek a more squared, heavy chin and therefore select an implant which can give them just this. Those seeking a more traditionally feminine finish, however, may opt for a more angular, narrow implant or instead to have the bone chiselled to shape.
n fact – it is the versatility of this procedure which makes is so overwhelmingly popular amongst patients worldwide, providing jaw-dropping improvement to flat, oversized or recessive chins permanently. If you’re still on the fence, why not read up on some of our most frequently asked questions below…
Chin augmentation surgery may be appropriate for individuals with an underdeveloped chin. When we observe the side view profile of the face, what the eye looks for is a chin that projects as far forward as the lower lip. Less of a projection results in what we call a “weak chin.”
Another aspect of facial proportions lies between the chin and the nose. Individuals with a large or protruding nose or patients who undergo rhinoplasty to alter the shape and size of their nose often consider chin implant surgery as a commentary procedure to bring more harmony to the face.
Chin augmentation surgery can correct the weak chin and also minimize the appearance of a double chin and indistinct neck.
Chin augmentation surgery can be a highly satisfying procedure because a strong chin has such a positive effect on the face. Women who strengthen their profile may look and feel more elegant. Increasing the projection and/or squareness of the male chin enhances the masculine traits of the face. Patients also appreciate the short duration of the augmentation procedure, the relatively short recovery period, and the fact that chin implants can be removed if so desired.
What Results Can Chin Augmentation Achieve?
Chin implant surgery doesn’t just contour the lower face, it creates cohesion between facial features to enhance overall beauty. A stronger chin with proper projection creates the triangular lower face that accentuates the profile. Ultimately, patients who undergo chin implant surgery express feeling more satisfied and confident about their appearance.
The Chin Augmentation Procedure
The chin augmentation procedure may be performed under local anesthesia and sedation or general anesthesia. This detail is determined during your consultation visit. During the outpatient procedure, the incision may be in the mouth or under the chin with minimal scarring. Space is created on top of the chin bone and the selected implant is inserted over the bony structure. The entire process is typically completed within approximately one hour.
