If you are unhappy with the size or shape of your chin, consider chin augmentation. This surgery is growing increasingly popular among both men and women. By changing the size of the chin, you can help balance out the proportions of your face. This is a great way to increase self-confidence and get the facial profile you have always wanted.
What is Chin Augmentation?
Generally speaking, chin augmentation involves surgery where an implant is used. A very small incision is made in order to insert the implant. The incision is typically so small that it is rarely noticeable once you have finished healing. Implants are made from silicone and come in many different sizes and shapes. At your consultation, we can decide which implant would best complement your natural beauty.
Who is a Good Candidate for Chin Augmentation?
This surgery can be beneficial for those with an asymmetrical chin. It is also a popular choice for people with a “weak” chin, where it looks small or narrow. In order to be considered a good candidate, it is important to have good overall health.
Both men and women can benefit from chin augmentation. It is important to be in good overall mental health as well. As with all surgeries, being a non-smoker reduces your risk of side effects and can shorten your recovery time. As such, if you are a smoker, we’ll want you to stop for a set amount of time before and after the surgery. It is important to go into this procedure with realistic expectations about your results.
What to Expect with Chin Augmentation
This surgery is done on an outpatient basis. Recovery is relatively short for a surgical cosmetic procedure. Many people choose to combine chin augmentation with another procedure to further improve the proportions of their face. Your desires and options are something that can be discussed at your consultation.
