Chin Surgery / Genioplasty
Originally Chin Implant was used for reconstruction of birth defects and trauma-related incidents. Now, they are being applied aesthetically to enhance a person’s chin or to create symmetry within the facial structure from a weak chin. With a chin implant, the face is transformed into a more aesthetically pleasing shape.
A well-defined chin helps give balance to the face and creates a major part of one’s profile. When people look in the mirror, most focus on the size and shape of their noses, their ears, sagging jowls, or fine wrinkling of the skin. But even though few examine their chins with the same discerning eye, having a weak chin is certainly not an asset. Chin augmentation is the use of synthetics (Mentoplasty) or biologicals (Genioplasty if with bone advancement) to augment or make the chin more prominent.
It can give balance to an otherwise less defined face or further augment an already existent chin structure. Many times a cosmetic 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 minimize the perceived size of the nose.
