Chin augmentation is a surgical technique that is used to achieve facial harmony in patients that have a weak chin. This is commonly associated with a large nose, excess fat or skin laxity under the chin region.
Achieving facial harmony is characterized by creating balance and symmetry in the overall appearance of the face. Augmentation of the chin with an implant can provide a more chiseled, sculpted appearance to the facial structure. Chin implantation is commonly combined with cheek implants that add or improve volume and provide more distinct facial contours, leaving you with a defined, youthful appearance.
A strong, prominent chin has an implication of power and dominance as it distinctively represents masculine beauty, while an undefined or receding chin may result in individuals viewing you as timid and demure.
This procedure can improve projection of the chin, create a better equilibrium and contribute to the overall aesthetic when complemented with other facial features.
