Chin Augmentation is a cosmetic surgery procedure performed to enhance the definition and structure of the chin. The chin can be an issue for people who feel their chin is “receding” into their neck, who for people who feel their nose is too large or cheeks too heavy. The chin, like the nose, can have a dramatic impact on the way we perceive facial harmony and balance. Sometimes a Chin Augmentation is performed in combination with a Nose Surgery to achieve the perfect balance, while other times a nose that looks too large may be corrected, not by a nose surgery, but by a chin augmentation. So, it is important to choose a plastic surgeon who carefully examines the the whole facial structure of a person before recommending a procedure plan.
The Chin Augmentation procedure may be performed using a few different techniques. Sometimes an injectable filler alone is able to achieve the desired results–though it is important to understand that this non-surgical approach is only a temporary fix and may only work for a small section of people. The more long-lasting solution would be to use an implant in the front of the jawbone. The chin augmentation implants are made with a firm silicone and while they won’t change the front view, the profile of your jaw definition will be significantly improved.
