Chin augmentation involves surgically placing a biocompatible implant over the lower jaw structure, widening or lengthening the shape of the jaw if you are unhappy with the way it looks. The surgery can subtly alter the balance of your face – giving you a stronger profile and removing the prominence of a nose or a neck.
Both chin augmentation and chin implants can be an alternative to nose surgery as a way of re-balancing and shaping your face – or can be used in conjunction with rhinoplasty (nose job) to give you the face shape you’ve always wanted.
Chin augmentation and implants suit those with a ‘weak’ chin who want a stronger and wider jaw line created, or wish to lengthen their face.
