Whether we notice it or not, full cheeks are often a part of how we judge a person’s face. Cheek implants can have a major impact on the appearance and self-confidence of a person whose cheeks have thinned or sunken due to age, illness or other causes. Likewise, the chin helps provide harmony to the facial features. Patients often seek a smaller nose when, in fact, a chin augmentation or chin implants can provide a balance to the facial features.
Implant sizes and shapes to augment the cheek and chin areas are tailored to each patient’s desired appearance. The implants are placed during an outpatient procedure under local or general anesthesia, which usually takes less than an hour to perform. Your doctor will make the necessary incisions in inconspicuous locations to allow for minimal scarring.
Chin augmentation is one of the most favored and widely used type of facial augmentation.
Augmentation of the chin can greatly improve the appeal of a weak chin and balance out any disproportionate features. Patients who opt for chin implants are often in need of an increased chin extension. Patients who need dramatic augmentation of the chin may need to take part in surgery that moves the chin bone position.
Chin augmentation is a procedure that is commonly paired with a rhinoplasty procedure. Patients undergo chin augmentation in order to increase the balance of their facial features to provide a better appearance. Augmentation of the chin is often performed by an maxillofacial, plastic, and/or oral surgeon.
