Chin implants (also knowns as chin augmentation) is a surgical procedure done to reshape or enhance the size of the chin. This is a plastic surgery procedure that is done either by inserting an implant or by moving and reshaping the facial bones in the lower portion of the face. Before surgery is done a patient will have a consultation appointment with Dr. Benjamin Stong to discuss the outcomes that are desired. X-rays and pictures will be taken to determine the exact part of the chin and face to operate on.
Most people equate beauty with balance. When the face is off balance, a person may feel unattractive or uncomfortable with his or her appearance. One of these areas is the chin. Chin implants are usually done to balance the face by making the chin longer or bigger in order to balance it out with the nose. Because everyone’s nose protrudes from the face, the chin should also protrude in order to balance out the facial features. A weak or receding chin can cause an imbalance, and as a person ages it can also appear to completely disappear into the neck. Chin implants are often done with a facelift surgery in order to help define the neck. Dr. Stong evaluates each patient on an individual basis to determine the exact methods needed to achieve the desired outcomes.
