For many of our patients, they are dissatisfied with the appearance of their chin. Whether it projects a little too much, or is not pronounced enough, chin implants (mentoplasty) can improve the shape and size of your chin.
For augmentation, either chin implants or actual reshaping of the bone can be performed by our plastic surgeons. When evaluating the face, all proportions of the facial features must be evaluated, taking into account the relative size and shape of the nose and the chin. A large nose may be made to appear even larger with an under projected chin. For this reason, rhinoplasty and chin surgery are sometimes performed together to achieve a well balanced and natural facial appearance.
