What is Chin Augmentation?

Placing implants within the chin can help bring balance to one’s facial appearance. It can also strengthen a jawline. These artificial implants can help change the basic structure of your face, to give a fuller, more basic look. Chin implants can also restore a more youthful and refreshed appearance to areas that appear sunken or tired. Chin augmentation can be performed alone, or in conjunction with another cosmetic procedure such as facial liposuction in order to further enhance the appearance and to provide a more harmonious balance to one’s facial features.

During the procedure, the surgeon selects the proper size and shape of the implant used to enhance your appearance. The surgeon then inserts it into a pocket over the front of the jawbone. The small incision to create the pocket and insert the implant is placed inside the mouth (along the lower lip) or in the skin just under the chin area. There are various ways in which the procedure is performed, such as different incision and insertion locations, check with your cosmetic surgeon as to their preferred technique.
