A smaller chin can create facial imbalance that makes the nose and forehead look larger. Ideally, the face should have a balance in size between the lower, mid and upper regions. Chin augmentation can increase the projection or width of the chin to create the desired facial harmony. Dr. Harry Salinas at HMS Plastic Surgery offers chin implants for augmentation surgery at our center in Miami, FL.
The chin is an important facial feature, creating the shape of the lower face. When a chin is small or receded, the face looks top heavy. It is common for the nose and brow to appear larger, even when they are proportionate in size. Cosmetic chin augmentation adds volume to the chin and jaw, projecting it out to enhance the shape of the jaw and lower face.
Chin implants are the ideal option for adding significant volume to the jawline. While facial filler injections can add some volume, they are temporary and cannot achieve the same projection as implants. Most chin implants are made from silicone and come in many shapes and sizes to create the desired shape and projection.
Chin Augmentation Surgery
During a chin implant augmentation surgery, a small incision is usually made under the chin. The implant is placed over the chin bone and secured in place, creating the desired shape for the jaw and chin. The incision scar is well-hidden and is almost invisible once the skin heals. The procedure usually takes less than an hour and downtime are minimal if this procedure is performed without other cosmetic surgery.
Chin implants can make a tremendous difference for those with weak or receded chins. They can balance the face, improve the neckline and enhance the jawline. The implants can help create a more masculine appearance for men; women can lengthen their face and create a more graceful neck or profile.
If you have a small, weak, narrow or receded chin, consider augmentation surgery with chin implants to improve your facial balance.
