Chin Implant Plastic Surgery
In many patients, the chin can be small, narrow or under projecting, impacting the overall appearance of the face. A “weak” chin can make the nose appear larger or create an unbalanced look to the facial features. Augmenting the chin creates harmony and balance in the face for those with a smaller or receded chin. Dr. John Anastasatos at Los Angeles Plastic Surgery offers chin implant plastic surgery for men and women at our clinic in Beverly Hills.
When the balance between the chin and the face is not correct, then a chin augmentation or chin enhancement surgery can create beautiful results. Sometimes a chin implant may be done at the same time as nose surgery for better facial proportion. The chin implants are either silicone or porous. The porous implants have the advantage of sticking well to the bone and the tissues. The silicone implants do not adhere as well, and thus can become displaced over time. Dr. Anastasatos can discuss the differences and help determine the best choice for creating the desired effect.
Performing Chin Augmentation
There are two main options when performing chin augmentation surgery. In the first option, the incision can be inside the mouth under the bottom lip. This way leaves no visible scars. The other option is done via an incision under the chin. It is a very small incision that heals well. Depending on the size and placement of the implant, either method can be used effectively and discreetly.
The shape and projection of the chin impacts the overall attractiveness and harmony of the facial features.
