Why Choose Chin Augmentation Plastic Surgery?
An aesthetically pleasing face requires proportional harmony between the upper, middle and lower thirds of the face. This harmonious balance is no more important than the relationship between the middle third, namely the nose and cheek with the chin. A “weak” chin may in fact be a result of a prominent nose, which throws out the balance between these two very important cosmetic sub-units. Depending on your particular case, to achieve facial proportion, as the size of the chin may magnify or minimize the perceived size of the nose. Genioplasty helps provide a balance to your facial features so that you feel better about the way you look.
Chin augmentation is performed to improve the balance of your facial outline and define your weak chin. There are two contemporary plastic surgery procedures available offered that yield a perfect fully defined attractive chin. A large number of patients do not consider cosmetic chin surgery to be painful surgery. You can feel tightness in the skin after surgery due to the body’s normal swelling response. Oral pain medications, which your plastic surgeon will prescribe you, can be used for a few days to manage discomfort.
Chin Augmentation Ban be Performed Via Two Methods:
- Using FDA approved medical chin implants for permanent results or,
- Cosmetic injectable fillers such Juvederm or Perlane can be used to enhance the contour of your chin for temporary results.
Chin Reduction Plastic Surgery (Chin Reshaping Surgery)
If your chin is too small it can affect all of your facial features. A small chin can make your nose look larger or your lips thinner, while a large chin can dwarf attractive features such as your eyes. Chin reduction surgery can reduce or increase the size of your chin, or re-position it to help balance your profile. Both men and women tend to undergo this procedure.
