Chin augmentation surgery at Cosmetic Surgery Center can be a wonderful anti-aging solution.
When the face ages, elasticity decreases and the soft tissue loses volume. For some, due to genetics or just because, the chin definition becomes noticeably softer. A “weak” – or under-projected – chin can make the nose and/or neck appear larger than they are and can make the overall facial features appear unbalanced. To solve this problem, a small implant can be used to re-create the definition that was once there.
The implant that we use is made from a soft silastic material that can be custom cut and shaped, without leakage, for each individual. The implant is placed in a pocket under the muscle so it is stable and can be removed, at a later date, if desired. The implant is well-tolerated and most patients say they forget that the implant is there.
Not all chins are “weak”. If the chin is too big, augmentation can be done by removing soft tissue or bone to reduce the chin.
Our chin augmentation patients are amazed at the change in their profile and the new relationship between their facial features. Many patients have also expressed that their newly defined chin makes them look like they have lost 10 pounds!
