A chin implant, or chin augmentation, creates facial harmony by restoring the proper balance between other facial features as well as the neckline.
Chin implant candidates seek to improve their chin profile in relation to their other facial features. If a weak chin creates a poorly defined chin-neck profile or if the weak chin is out of proportion with other facial features, such as the nose, you may be a candidate for chin implant surgery.
The chin implant procedure begins with an incision in a crease under the chin. The chin implant is placed in a pocket created between the bone and the muscle. Once the implant is properly placed, the incision is closed.
Patients often have other procedures at the same time as chin implant surgery. Rhinoplasty surgery contours the nose so that it is in good proportion to the chin. Neck lift surgery tightens the skin and muscles of the neck which is a nice complement to chin implant surgery. Mini facelift or Facelift surgery improves the jowls and raises the cheeks, which makes the chin implant an even better result.
