Chin augmentation, or chin surgery, is a set of surgical procedures that can change the shape of the chin. The chin can either by enhanced with implants or reduced by removal of bone. Chin surgery is for those who are looking to subtly enhance their facial balance or require reconstructive surgery.
With cosmetic chin augmentation, an implant can be used to enhance the contour or definition of the chin for greater prominence. During the procedure, implants are inserted along an incision made on the inside of the mouth between the gums and lower lips. Alternatively, reduction surgery may be performed to shrink the size of the chin. Chin augmentation is sometimes recommended as an alternative to nose surgery, because changing the chin’s size affects facial balance.
