Some people find that their chin is not proportional to the rest of your face. They may consider undergoing a Chin Augmentation surgery.

Chin Augmentation is a way of enhancing your chin through facial implants. This surgery add a more proportioned volume to the chin to provide balance with other facial features. A weak chin makes the neck look fleshy but a well-proportioned chin can also accentuate the size of a normal nose, make it look a little bit more prominent than it seems. Usually, a chin implant surgery provides harmony and balance among the facial features and the overall facial structure.

Here are cases that may require a Chin Augmentation surgery:

  • recessed chin
  • pointed or squared chin
  • very prominent nose
  • fleshy neck

This surgery will also improves the appearance of your jaw and balances the appearance of a large nose. This is why it is not uncommon for a plastic surgeon to recommend chin augmentation with a rhinoplasty. A person may not be an ideal candidate for a chin augmentation for the following reasons:

  • poor health
  • unreasonable or unjustifiable expectations about the outcome of Chin Augmentation
  • If he/she has taken Accutane for the past six months. It is the medication that can affect bone growth and can cause keloid scarring.
  • suffers from cardiac problems or hypertension
  • currently taking anticoagulants
