Your facial bone structure is an essential part of having a balanced face. Having a weak chin can make a normal nose appear larger. A chin implant can help balance your facial structures and give you a more attractive profile.
In a minor chin augmentation, an implant is placed under the skin to strengthen the appearance of the chin from the profile view. During the procedure, the surgeon selects the proper size and shape implant to enhance your appearance.
A major chin augmentation may require bone surgery called an osteotomy. In this case, the chin bone is cut and moved forward to its new position.
The best candidates for chin augmentation are patients with weak or receding chins, but with a normal dental bite.
It lasts approximately 1 hour.
