About Chin Augmentation and Implants
Chin augmentation is a surgical procedure used to alter and enhance the underlying structure of a person’s face, and helps provide better balance and definition to the facial features. The medical terms genioplasty or mentoplasty are used to refer to the addition and reduction of material to the patient’s chin.
Chin augmentation can be attained by manipulating the patient’s jaw bone; augmentation using this technique often gives a more dramatic and prominent correction compared to the use of prosthetic implants. It restores harmony to your face, provides a lift to your neck, and balances the anatomical connection between your chin, nose and brow.
Chin augmentation is a very popular procedure as it is relatively easy compared to other surgical procedures and produces significant changes in the silhouette of your face. The surgery is typically performed by an otolaryngologist, maxillofacial and oral surgeon, or plastic surgeon.
