Chin Augmentation is a procedure performed to enhance a weak or undersized chin, improve overall facial harmony and balance, and create more definition in the jaw line. A weak chin can dramatic impact the way we perceive the proportions of the other features of the face, especially the nose. A weak or small chin may make a nose look larger than it is and may give the face a “drooping” appearance. Chin augmentation is a permanent solution that is performed through a tiny incision under the chin. The chin implant is placed and secured. Sometimes the chin augmentation is performed in combination with a rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, to create the best overall facial harmony.
When performed on its own the chin augmentation takes just half an hour to complete and is usually done only with local anesthesia.
