Chin Augmentation Surgery and Facial Implants
Chin augmentation, alongside other facial augmentation procedures, can enhance the proportions of the face, giving balance to an inadequate jawline and lessen jowling. This procedure can give dramatic overnight changes to patients who obsess over a weak chin. Often, a chin augmentation can bypass the need for facial surgery or cheek lift procedures.
Chin Augmentation Procedures
Chin augmentation procedures strengthen and support the jawline and balance the face. This procedure is frequently done in conjunction with a facelift and can make a good facelift into a great one. It can be performed with other facial surgery, or it may be done as an isolated operation.
Chin augmentation surgery is generally painless, performed under local anesthesia with sedation or under deeper anesthesia. After numbing the area with local anesthetic, a chin implant is placed using an incision under the jaw where it is hidden as it heals. The wounds are closed with sutures and no dressing is required.
Other Facial Augmentation Procedures
Patients looking for fuller features such as lips or cheeks may also consider facial augmentation methods like cheek implants or lip implants. Cheek implants help restore balance, beauty and youth to the cheek. They are placed through the mouth under local anesthesia.
