Chin Augmentation Facial Plastic Surgery
We are dedicated to providing each person with the materials and resources needed to become educated on everything pertaining to chin augmentation surgery. Chin Augmentation is a common procedure which brings balance to the facial structure by way of correcting a weak chin due to congenital deficiency, age-related bone absorption or facial trauma. This procedure can be as simple as injecting a temporary soft tissue augmentation filler to implanting a silicone or Porex chin implant, to having a genioplasty. We will cover all the ways available to enhance the chin.
A weak chin can also make a normal nose appear large and an already prominent nose seem even larger. It may also give the appearance of a 'fleshy' neck. On the other hand, a too prominent chin may give the appearance of having too small of a nose or otherwise throwing the face off balance. The end result should be a balanced relationship within the structure of the face. Some patients prefer to have rhinoplasty in conjunction with chin augmentation in order to provide the best facial balance.
While chin enhancement can be a relatively simple procedure, it still requires sound judgment, meticulous skill and a good aesthetic eye. For this reason, we have researched and hand-selected chin augmentation surgeons in your area ourselves. For your convenience, our surgeons are brought to you in an easy-to-navigate directory and are listed by city and state. We have included the risks of chin implants as well as a chin augmentation before and after photo gallery.
Chin augmentation can also be performed as part of an overall facial rejuvenation. Visit our sister website for a comprehensive review of face lift and other types of facial surgery.
