The Benefits of Chin ImplantsPublished on August 12, 2015 by Raymond Lee
The chin plays a vital role in the appearance of the face, though the eyes and nose tend to get the most attention. Those that are typically displeased with their chins feel theirs is either too small or ‘weak’ or too prominent.
A chin implant can be a great choice when looking to improve the contour of the face, and there are several benefits to choosing this treatment plan. These include:
- An increase in the chin’s projection
- An increase in the width of the chin
- An increase in the vertical height of the chin
- A decrease or elimination of chin dimpling
- Concealment of jowls
- An overall improvement of facial proportions
The patients most likely to benefit from chin augmentation surgery are those who have chins that are small, too squared or pointed and those with irregularly shaped or asymmetrical chins. Improving the shape and prominence of the chin can drastically change the overall appearance of the patient and balance out the features of the face.
An additional benefit of chin augmentation surgery is that the chin implants have a very natural look. The chin implants feel authentic and seamlessly blend with the rest of the face.
A chin implant can also be performed in conjunction with or instead of other facial plastic surgeries to achieve an optimal result. If a patient is concerned with a prominent nose, rhinoplasty may not be necessary as a chin implant can often reduce the prominence of the nose. If necessary, a chin implant can be used in combination with a rhinoplasty to achieve the desired overall appearance.
