Your chin is just as important to your facial profile as your nose. Having a chin that is well defined presents a more attractive facial structure that enhances your natural appearance. Chin augmentation can improve the shape, contour, and prominence of your chin to create a more aesthetically attractive facial structure.
The Ideal Candidate
- Is a non-smoker
- Is physically healthy
- Has a positive outlook
- Has realistic goals and expectations
The ideal candidate will feel that his or her chin could be described in one or more of the following ways:
- Poorly defined
- Out of balance with the rest of the facial features, particularly the nose and cheekbones
- Weak in comparison to the nasal profile
- An odd shape
Chin augmentation enhances the chin using an implant that is precisely measured to fit your face. With a minor incision through the mouth or underneath the chin, the custom-designed implant will be inserted and carefully secured over the chin bone. The implant will permanently improve your jawline and strengthen your facial structure.
Recovery and Results
Recovery from chin augmentation is short. Patients may experience some slight bruising and/or swelling, which should be mostly resolved within one week. Most patients can return to work one week after the procedure, at which point it will be hardly noticeable that you had surgery. Any numbness is temporary and will resolve within a few months. The mouth and smile may feel restricted and tight at first, but as the facial tissues adjust to the implant over the following months, this will resolve and feel more natural. Chin augmentation noticeably enhances the structure of your face to improve your facial beauty and create a more defined and well-balanced profile.
