Through the ages, strong chins have been considered signs of beauty. Chin augmentation, is a surgical procedure that has helped thousands of people improve their appearance by changing the contours of their faces.
What does Chin Implant Surgery Involve?
Chin surgery is usually performed to augment a weak chin or to balance other facial features, such as a prominent nose. Cosmetic surgeons often use a chin implant, for chin enlargement. In addition to cosmetic chin surgery, facial implants are also commonly used to enhance the cheeks (for higher cheekbones). Chin implants can be combined with cheek implants or used in conjunction with liposuction surgery or other cosmetic facial procedures such as a facelift or rhinoplasty nose surgery.
Thanks to modern technology, there is a safe & permanent method to correct a receding chin and this is sought after by men and women worldwide. Chin augmentation is usually not carried out until the development of the bone is considered complete. Chin augmentation or mentoplasty are surgical procedures designed to provide a more vibrant and attractive look of distinction. Chin implants are often recommended to patients undergoing nose surgery to achieve better facial balance.
What can I expect from a chin implant?
As all patients are individual, varying results can be expected in each patient.
Chin Implant surgery will enhance your appearance and your self confidence. Realistic expectations are important to be happy with any surgery.
Are chin and cheek implants safe and will it feel natural?
Facial implants have proven to provide a safe, predictable, low-risk cosmetic surgical procedure. Millions of facial implants made from non-toxic materials such as expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) & silicone have been implanted, with no reported cases of allergic reaction. The implants, designed specifically for use in the chin come in wide shapes and sizes. The implants are custom-trimmed by your surgeon for a more natural fit.
Chin implants are made from special medical-grade materials that, when positioned and inserted, look and feel like normal bone and so you usually cannot tell the difference.
Who is the best candidate?
The best candidates for a chin implant are patients with a receding chin/ weak chin. If you have a chin that looks too small in comparison with other facial features, you would also benefit from this, for example; a chin implant can improve the neckline and make a large nose appear smaller, and so will help balance out the facial features. It can also improve a rounded face and neck.
