Chin Augmentation

Chin Augmentation

A weak or undeveloped chin in a female can make the nose appear larger and the neck ill-defined. With just a few millimeters of augmentation to the chin, the entire profile of the female face can be improved. You May Want To Consider A Chin Augmentation Procedure If You are dissatisfied with your facial profile due to a small or poorly defined chin.

Chin augmentation surgery is performed as an outpatient under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with IV sedation. Through a small incision concealed in the crease under your chin, a pocket is created along the jaw line and a permanent customized implant is positioned to augment the bony structure of the chin and jaw. Scar tissue will form around the implant, holding it in place and keeping the implant from moving.

Minor chin augmentation can also be done using fat grafting by using persons own fat either from abdomen or thighs. This also creates a vertical face which is considered more attractive and makes a person’s face profile stronger.
