Although beauty comes in many shapes and sizes, people tend to find symmetry to be especially attractive. If you have always worried that you had a “weak” chin, there is hope. Chin augmentation is a straightforward procedure that can help give you great facial harmony, which can lead to greater self-confidence!
What is Chin Augmentation?
Chin augmentation typically involves placing an implant. These implants are almost always made of silicone. They come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, allowing us to help you find the perfect one for you. Due to the numerous options out there, it is important to sit down at a consultation to determine what is the best choice for you. Many people choose to combine chin augmentation with other surgeries, so you may wish to discuss this option as well.
Who is an Ideal Candidate for Chin Augmentation?
This procedure is perfect for people who feel they have a recessed or “weak” chin. It is also a good treatment option if you have some asymmetry in the bottom of your face. Essentially, it is a good option for anyone whose profile would be improved by adding volume to their chin. Those who feel like their chin is too large will need a different treatment option to meet their needs.
Both men and women can benefit from this procedure. Some things do make you a better candidate for this surgery. Having teeth that are aligned normally is important. Good candidates are people who:
- Are 18 or older
- Have realistic expectations
- Are a non-smoker
- Have a positive outlook about the procedure
- Are in good general health
What to Expect with Chin Augmentation
This procedure is done on an outpatient basis. You will want to bring someone with you to drive. In most cases, the actual surgery is pretty quick. Be sure to follow post-operative instructions carefully, including sleeping with your head elevated. Many people are back at work after just days when having this procedure done.
