The chin is vital to the shape and balance of the face. When the chin is small in comparison to the rest of the facial features, it impacts the harmony. A small or receded chin can make the forehead and nose seem larger and weaken the definition of the jawline. To restore a more balanced face, implants can be used to reshape the chin. At London BBL Surgery and Body Contouring, we offer beautiful chin augmentation surgery to create facial balance.
Genetics play the biggest role in the chin’s size and shape. You cannot control the bone structure you were given, but there are ways to improve it. Chin implants are usually made from silicone and come in a variety of sizes and shapes. They are designed to fit over the chin bone to create the projection and shape desired.
Chin augmentation can have a significant impact on the facial appearance. Adding extra length and width to the chin defines the jaw and changes the facial shape. The nose and forehead can look more balanced in size. Many people will combine a chin augmentation with rhinoplasty if the nose is on the larger side.
Mentoplasty for Facial Balance
Chin augmentation, or mentoplasty, can help change your profile for a more attractive appearance. Our plastic surgeon, Dr. Daniel Del Vecchio, has decades of experience reshaping the face and body. He can recommend the right shape and size of chin implant to create the facial shape you desire to highlight your best features.
Mentoplasty is performed under anesthesia to reshape and enhance the chin. The incision is discreetly hidden under the chin or may be placed in the inside of the lower lip. Dr. Del Vecchio will adjust the bone and tissue to ensure the implant fits correctly and will look natural.
After chin augmentation, patients can see an immediate difference in their facial appearance. There is some recovery required with swelling and bruising from the surgery.
Chin augmentations are a subtle but effective way to improve a weak jawline or recessed chin. If you want to restore better facial balance, chin implant surgery may be right for you.
