What is A Chin Implant?

(Jaw) Chin implant surgery in Turkey is a surgical operation done to contour people’s chins and to reshape their jawline and side profile.

Most people have this surgical operation for aesthetic reasons. However, some need reconstruction for their face structure. During this procedure, the surgeon makes some incisions and places the chin implant into your chin or jaw bone through these incisions.

How Are (Jaw) Chin Implants Different From Chin Augmentation Fillers and Fat Grafting?

There are other treatments for chin augmentation besides (jaw) chin implant surgery. If you can not have chin implant surgery, you may prefer fat grafting or dermal fillers.

Chin Augmentation Fillers

Cosmetic surgeons inject medical substances like hyaluronic acid into your chin to augment its size. With this cosmetic treatment, you can also have the look that you dreamt of. In addition, they improve creases and wrinkles. However, they are not permanent like (jaw) chin implants. On the contrary, they fade away after 6 or 12 months, depending on the skin type and body structure.

Fat Grafting Into The Chin

Surgeons collect extra fat from fatty parts of the body by liposuction. They purify it before they inject it into your chin’s soft tissue. Extra fat generally is sucked from the tummy or buttocks. It is not a surgical operation. Thus, it is minimally invasive.
