Chin - Wrong Shape or Size -  Chin Correction - Chin Augmentation Aesthetic Surgery

With a chin implant, the face is transformed into a more aesthetically pleasing shape.

The goal of the chin augmentation cosmetic surgery is to balance the profile by enhancing the under developed chin and improving facial harmony. A weak chin will often make the face appear 'bird-like' and pointy and may make the neck appear too fat. Chin augmentation is accomplished by placing a synthetic implant over the bony chin to improve the balance between the chin and the rest of the face. As an alternative to an implant, fat or Outline ultra may also be used to augment the bone and soft tissue of the chin. Many times a plastic surgeon may recommend chin surgery to a patient having nose surgery in order to achieve facial proportion, as the size of the chin may magnify or minimise the perceived size of the nose.
