Who is a good candidate for chin augmentation?
People with a small or receded chin, a poorly defined neck line, or an overly rounded face may be good candidates for chin augmentation. People who are looking to improve overall facial balance and proportion may also be benefit from this procedure. Dr. Tran will gladly meet with you to discuss whether you are a good candidate for chin augmentation surgery.
Can chin augmentation be combined with other procedures?
Chin augmentation is often combined with rhinoplasty (nose surgery) in order to improve the overall facial profile. Chin augmentation is also frequently combined with traditional liposuction. Some patients elect to combine chin augmentation with other cosmetic procedures such as a facelift. Dr. Tran will discuss with you what procedure or combination of procedures may best suit your specific needs.
Is This Procedure Right For Me?
The shape and position of the chin can have a powerful impact on overall facial aesthetics. When the chin is too small or recessed, it not only affects the jaw line and facial profile, it can also make the neck look fleshy, the face appear overly round, and a normal-sized nose look too large. Even subtle changes to the size and projection of the chin can bring about dramatic improvements in facial balance and harmony. Chin implant (chin augmentation) is an excellent option to enhance chin size, shape, and position, most commonly by inserting implants to bring the chin forward. In rare cases, a severely recessed chin may be improved with a surgical procedure to reposition the bone. Often, chin augmentation is combined with other facial cosmetic procedures for even better results, including rhinoplasty (nose surgery), neck lift, and liposuction to sculpt and shape the neck.
