This is a surgical procedure used to reshape the chin either by enhancement with an implant or reduction surgery on the bone.
Most times a plastic surgeon may recommend chin rejuvenation to a patient having nose surgery in order to achieve ideal facial proportion, as the size of the chin may magnify or minimize the size of the nose.
Chin rejuvenation helps provide a balance to your facial features so that you feel better about the way you look. Many men opt for chin augmentation to give them a stronger jaw line: often done in conjunction with sub mental liposuction and/or a lower mini-facelift (jaw line tightening).
Some chin implants are inserted through the inside lower lip to avoid facial scarring. Most often, the incision site is in the natural fold immediate under the chin. This usually leaves little to no perceptible scars.
Chin augmentation is often combined with liposuction to remove fat from under the chin and the neck. This is an outpatient procedure.
