Chin augmentation is a surgical procedure where chin implants are used to permanently enhance the appearance of your facial structure. Chin augmentation increases the strength of your chin. It gives you a more sculpted appearance and improves your profile.
Is Your Nose too Big or Your Chin too Small?
There are a lot of people who believe that their nose is too big for their face. So they go to their cosmetic surgeon looking for rhinoplasty in order to reduce the size of their nose. However, after examining their face, the doctor tells them that the problem is not the size of their nose. Their nose is the right size for their face. The problem is that their chin is too small.
This is where chin implants come into the picture. Your chin counterbalances your nose. It provides balance between the center and the bottom of your face. When your chin is too small, it makes your nose appear a lot bigger than what it really is. Chin implants from Dr. Steven Dayan can give you a nice profile so that your face looks balanced and attractive from all sides.
Who Makes a Good Candidate for Chin Augmentation?
As with most surgical procedures, a good candidate for chin augmentation surgery needs to be physically healthy as well as emotionally healthy. Individuals who walk into the procedure with a realistic expectation for it are those who feel the best with the way they look afterward.
There are medical concerns to be taken into consideration. For example, you cannot have allergies to the implanted material and should not have health conditions that would impede your body’s ability to heal. Outside of that, just about everyone is a good candidate for chin augmentation.
Can Chin Augmentation Be Coupled with Other Treatments?
Absolutely. Some people couple their chin augmentation procedure with cheek augmentation. Others see the benefit of mixing rhinoplasty and chin augmentation with the goal of producing their ideal profile. This treatment has often been combined with a forehead lift, an eyelid lift, or a facelift with the goal of improving the appearance of the whole face.
One of the great things about chin augmentation is that you will immediately begin to see some of the benefits of your chin implants. Over time, the results will continue to improve as your overall facial contours are revealed.
