Chin Implant

  • Chin augmentation is surgery to reshape or enhance the size of the chin. It may be done either by inserting an implant or by moving or reshaping bones.
  • A chin implant is designed to bring a harmonious balance to facial features, usually by augmenting a weak chin. By placing a biocompatible implant in the lower jaw, patients can create a stronger chin, and even lengthen the entire face.
Chin Implant
  • While many patients use dermal fillers to increase chin size, their results last for only a few months and require frequent touch-ups. In comparison, a chin implant offers permanent results that can be customized to achieve the desired look.
  • A chin implant is commonly used in conjunction with rhinoplasty. Because the appearance of the chin may be affected by what will be the new size and shape of the nose, a chin implant may be used to help achieve a more pleasing facial proportion.
  • It may also be combined with lip augmentation for maximum aesthetic results.
