Using chin augmentation to provide balance and harmony to the face and profile
- Posted on: Nov 15 2020
With a procedure known as chin augmentation, plastic surgeons have the ability to strengthen the appearance of the chin, improving proportion and overall balance. Patients who have a weak chin or a flatter profile may be self-conscious about the way in which they look to others. When patients of the Webster, TX area are worried about the appearance of their chin, they can ask about chin augmentation procedures with Dr. Kimberly Carpin.
How does chin augmentation work?
Chin augmentation is designed to bring the lower face into better proportion and harmony. This is typically done when a chin implant is placed. The chin implant adds to the projection of the chin, while defining the chin and jaw line. At the same time, the profile of a patient is improved in its balance and overall look. The implant chosen is one that best works with the patient’s natural face shape and size to ensure the most natural appearance when completed.
Who is a good candidate for chin augmentation?
Adult men and women who have a proper dental bite but also have a small or receding chin may be considered appropriate candidates for the chin augmentation procedure. In some instances, patients may also have other procedures performed at the same time, such as rhinoplasty, to ensure a more dramatic improvement in facial balance overall. During an initial consultation and evaluation, our team will assess a patient to decide if the chin augmentation procedure will achieve the results patients are interested in obtaining. We encourage patients to have realistic expectations regarding what can be achieved with this and other facial plastic surgeries.
