Chin implant surgery, also referred to as a chin augmentation, is a way to alter and improve the shape of the chin to a more desired aesthetic. Chin implant surgery is for those who are looking to enhance the prominence of the chin and improve facial balance by way of a prosthetic implant.
With chin implant surgery, a prosthetic chin enhancement can be added to the jawline to enhance the profile or definition of the chin. During the procedure, implants are inserted along an incision often made on the inside of the mouth to hide any post-surgical marks. In some rarer cases, chin augmentation is recommended as an alternative to nose surgery to correct facial balance.
