Posted April 16, 2018 in Chin Augmentation

Attaining balance and harmony is the priority of every facial cosmetic surgery. A balanced aesthetic allows for each of your features to shine just the right amount, without letting any specific element “stick out.” Unfortunately, having a poorly defined chin is one of those features that, when not in balance, can become prominent and more importantly, negatively impact your self-image.

Whether you were born with a small or receding chin, you have suffered a traumatic injury, or have experienced age’s transformative effect, there is no reason to hide or be bothered by this feature. Chin augmentation through chin implants (also known as mentoplasty) is a quick and easy solution to restoring facial symmetry and boosting your confidence.

Why Chin Implants?

Even though your face is made up of several different facial features, your appearance comes down to how these individual pieces interact with each other. Therefore, chin augmentation not only enhances the profile of your chin, but it also transforms and balances your entire face. No longer will there be undue attention placed on your nose or an undefined neckline. If you have an issue with facial balance, or another specific feature you would like to discuss, set up a consultation with our office for more information.

Combining Procedures to Create Full Rejuvenation

While chin augmentation creates stunning results on its own, it can be combined with other facial procedures to further rejuvenate and balance the face. Mentoplasty is commonly combined with:

  • Rhinoplasty to enhance the contour of the nose. Whether your concerns are an excessive nasal hump, a wide bridge, or flared nostrils, rhinoplasty complements chin augmentation by enhancing the harmony of your profile.
  • Facelift to treat the visible signs of aging in the lower face. Facelift surgery can rid you of the wrinkles, fine lines, jowls, and neck banding to enhance your transformation.
  • Cheek Implants to further balance and complement the mid-face.
