What is Chin Augmentation?
Chin augmentation can increase the size and projection of a chin that does not project in proportion with the forehead and mid-face. A small or recessed chin can also be described as one that seems to disappear into the neck of an individual of normal weight, rather than appearing as a distinct facial feature.
Chin Augmentation, also known as Mentoplasty, is a surgical procedure to reshape the chin either by enhancement with an implant or reduction surgery on the bone. Many times a plastic surgeon may recommend chin augmentation to a patient who had nose surgery in order to achieve facial proportion, as the size of the chin may magnify or minimize the perceived size of the nose.
Chin augmentation helps provide a harmonious balance to your facial features so that you feel better about the way you look.
