Facial balance is extremely important when considering any type of facial aesthetic surgery. Chin augmentation (mentoplasty) is a surgical procedure to enhance your look. By reshaping or increasing the size of the chin, the face will exhibit better projection and appearance. A chin implant is used to balance the profile by extending the chin in relationship with the nose.
Chin Implant Procedure Details
A synthetic chin implant is used to augment a weak or receding chin. Also, a chin implant can improve the appearance of jowls, by smoothing the transition from jowl to chin. Normally a small incision is made beneath the chin for this procedure, but can alternately be made inside the mouth. Mentoplasty (chin augmentation) may be performed alone or in conjunction with other facial aesthetic surgery such as a rhytidectomy (facelift) or reconstructive rhinoplasty (nasal reconstructive surgery).
The procedure is performed under IV sedation and local anesthesia in our fully accredited surgical suite, for your safety and comfort. Surgery takes about an hour with minimal recovery time and lasting results.
