Chin Augmentation Overview
Chin augmentation may be a cosmetic solution to patients dissatisfied with having a "weak" chin. If you are interested in having chin augmentation surgery our surgeons at the Carmel Cosmetic & Plastic Surgeons located in Carmel IN just north of Indianapolis will help you make an informed decision about your surgery options.
Chin augmentation requires a careful and artistic balance of the face's silhouette by lengthening the chin in relation to the nose. A weak chin can make a normal nose appear too large, just as a prominent chin can throw off the whole balance of the face. Often, chin augmentation is performed in conjunction with rhinoplasty to achieve total facial symmetry. The final results can give men a stronger, more masculine jaw line, or provide women a more delicate balance to their facial features, enhancing their overall confidence in their appearance.
What is Chin Augmentation?
Using a variety of techniques, chin augmentation utilizes implants to restructure the chin. There are several options of implant material most commonly used are synthetic implants such as polytetrafluoroethylene or silicone. Our surgeons can discuss which techniques are right for you. Chin augmentation is very popular because it is a relatively simple procedure that produces dramatic results. After surgery, patients may experience numbness in their lower lip for several days. Antibiotics are usually prescribed.
