Does your profile view (side view) bother you because you believe your chin is too small? If you feel as if you’d look better if your chin was more pronounced, a chin augmentation may be the procedure you’re looking for.
With a chin augmentation, a fitted implant is placed below the skin on the bone of the chin. This procedure is performed to improve the balance and symmetry of a small or underprojected chin. If you have a small chin, a chin augmentation could yield dramatic results, restoring facial harmony and creating the balanced profile you’re dreaming of.
The Goal of Chin Augmentation
Generally speaking, the patients who seek out chin augmentation procedures are those who have weak or underdeveloped chins. Through a chin augmentation procedure, such individuals are able to give their small or underdeveloped chins more prominence. What’s interesting is that the shape of a person’s chin is related to the size of their nose. A large nose can make a small chin more noticeable and vice versa.
Often, Dr. Yuly Gorodisky will perform a chin implant and rhinoplasty together, but a chin augmentation can also be done at the same time as a facelift or a neck lift to improve the aesthetics of the jawline.
Chin augmentations are not just for women. Men and women can achieve a well-defined and more balanced face with a custom-fit chin implant. Chin enhancement surgery, also called “chin augmentation” and “genioplasty” improves the contour of the neck, chin, and jawline. When chin enhancement surgery is performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Yuly Gorodisky, the procedure can offer a permanent solution for a recessed chin.
If you’re interested in correcting a weak chin, achieving facial harmony, and improving definition of your neck and jawline, a chin augmentation may be right for you. To learn more about this exciting procedure, we invite you to contact our office to schedule a consultation with Dr. Yuly Gorodisky.
