The shape of one’s facial bone structure, including your chin, is often an essential part of an individual’s self image. If you are self conscious about the shape of your chin, a surgical chin augmentation may be an effective way to make your facial features more proportionate so to boost your self-esteem.
Chin Augmentation Q & A
What is Chin Augmentation?
A chin augmentation, also known as mentoplasty or genioplasty, is a surgical procedure performed to reshape the chin. This is accomplished through either a surgical implant or by altering the bone to reshape the chin and jawline. The bone in the chin and jaw can either be reduced, or the jaw can physically be moved forward. Just as chins naturally vary in shape and sizes, chin surgeries also achieve a variety of shapes and are personally tailored to fit the patient’s needs and facial proportions.
What Does Chin Surgery Treat?
Chin surgery is performed to improve and balance the proportions of a patient’s chin in relation to their nose, jaw, forehead, cheek and other facial features.
