The size and shape of the chin is very important in facial aesthetics and is usually unrecognized by patients. Chin augmentation is often at least part of the solution to patients seeking a more feminine or masculine look, better neck or jaw definition, or a smaller nose. A small or recessed chin can have a significant contribution to a large nose. Women have smaller, rounded chin while men have a more square and angled appearance.
Chin augmentation can be done by placing an implant (from inside the mouth or under the chin), osteotomy (breaking the bone, advancement and fixation,) and fat transfer for milder cases. Either techniques could be combined with other procedures such as rhinoplasty, face or neck lift. Please click on facelift, neck lift, and rhinoplasty for more information.
