Chin Augmentation

Author: Dr. Gordon Sasaki

The size and shape of the chin is very important in facial aesthetics but is usually overlooked by patients seeking facial plastic surgery in Pasadena.  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. The size of your chin can provide balance to the overall appearance of  the face. A small or recessed chin can have a significant contribution to a large nose. Women usually have a smaller, rounded chin while men have a more square and angled appearance. Dr. Sasaki can address the size and shape of your chin during a consultation at his plastic surgery practice in Pasadena.

Chin Augmentation Options

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. Any of these techniques can be combined with other procedures such as rhinoplasty, facelift or neck lift to achieve your desired results.
