With more and more pictures being taken for social media, people are taking notice of their chins. Chin projection is important in having a proportional and balanced face, particularly in relation to the nose. An under-projected chin can make a nose appear larger. Patients with weak chins may also be perceived by others as “less strong.”
Chin augmentation is performed by making a small incision through your mouth. No incisions are made on the skin. After placing the implant, a dressing is placed for 5 days. The recovery is quick and patients are able to see immediate results on their improved profile view and can never feel the implant.
Chin augmentation can be performed as an isolated procedure or combined with rhinoplasty, neck liposuction, or other facial rejuvenation procedures.
