Having balanced proportions and facial symmetry is important to many people. Like it or not, many people make judgments based on how we look. Chin augmentation is a great way to change the size and shape of the lower part of the face. This procedure can give you permanent results that improve your self-esteem.
What Does Chin Augmentation Involve?
Chin augmentation is all about enhancing your natural beauty. In most cases, chin augmentation involves the placement of an implant. These implants come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, allowing us to customize your look in a way that helps you reach your goals. They are made from a biocompatible material such as silicone. During the procedure, the implant is skillfully inserted using specialized techniques. The exact details of the procedure can be discussed during your consultation.
What to Expect with Chin Augmentation
For almost everyone, this surgery can be done on an outpatient basis, meaning you will be able to go home the same day. In most cases, the procedure itself is pretty quick when compared to other surgeries. If you are having additional work done at the same time, such as cheek augmentation or nose reshaping, the procedure will take longer.
Who is an Ideal Candidate for Chin Augmentation?
This surgery can help many people who are unhappy with the size or shape of their chin. It is particularly helpful for people with a recessed or “weak” chin. Those who would like to address asymmetry in their chin can also benefit from the surgery. This option is also good for people who find they have a flabby due to their small chin bone.
Both men and women can be considered good candidates for chin augmentation. Having teeth that are aligned normally is considered helpful. Other factors include being in good general health, being an adult aged 18 or older, and being a non-smoker. Having realistic expectations regarding the procedure, recovery and results is also important. We will go over what to expect with your treatment during your initial consultation.
