Chin augmentation is a cosmetic procedure which will make your chin more prominent. This procedure can create an aesthetically pleasing shape within your facial structure. You are a good candidate for this procedure if your chin is receding, weak, asymmetric or not well-defined. Synthetic implants are usually used during the chin augmentation procedure to improve your looks.
Benefits of Chin Augmentation
The main goal of chin augmentation is to bring balance to your face and enhance your physical appearance. Here are several additional benefits of chin augmentation:
- Your confidence and self-esteem will be boosted
- The traits of your face will become symmetric and more attractive
- Chin augmentation can give a correction to weak, underdeveloped chins
- Can make the nose appear smaller
- This procedure creates a more interesting and eye-catching neck profile
- Reduces the appearance of “double chin”
- Gives your face a more pleasing triangular appearance
About The Procedure
This medical procedure is usually performed with light sleep anesthesia. If it is combined with other cosmetic surgeries like facelift or rhinoplasty then general anesthesia might be used. The anesthesia will help you relax and feel no pain. Most patients feel asleep during the procedure.
The surgeon will administer local anesthetics to numb the area before the surgery. This procedure can take from 1 to 2 hours. An incision can be made in the mouth or under the chin when the chin implants are inserted. If the patient follows a strict hygiene regimen, the risks of infections are low.
