Chin Augmentation is a very common procedure to bring balance to the facial structure by way of correcting a weak chin due to congenital deficiency, age-related bone resorption or facial trauma.
A strong chin has long been considered a sign of physical beauty. Today, persons with weak or receding chins can have the condition corrected with a simple and routine outpatient surgery that involves adding a synthetic prosthesis to the existing chin structure. Some may require a surgical procedure in which the chin bone is moved forward to give them the desired appearance. The procedure may be used in conjunction with other procedures such as a facelift or facial liposuction which completes the desires of the patient to enhance their physical appearance.
Chin implants may augment the jaw to correct problems with weak chins, sagging skin in the chin area, and improve the shape and balance of the face.
