Chin Augmentation (Mentoplasty) by Wave Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Laser Center
There are many techniques and materials used to augment the chin. The most common technique is an intra oral approach to avoid any visible scars and the most common material used is a silicone implant. When it comes to improving the aesthetic appearance of the face, the chin implant can be a very powerful tool.
Chin augmentation can affect the contour of the face and also bring balance to the face by making the chin more proportionate to the rest of the facial features. This procedure is often combined with rhinoplasty as an appropriately sized chin can balance out the strength of the nose. Chin augmentation may also be combined with other facial surgery to rejuvenate the face and obtain facial symmetry and harmony.
A successful Chin Augmentation surgery can enhance your appearance as well as your self-esteem.

While the initial outcome of plastic surgery with Chin implants is noticeable almost immediately, it will be obscured by visible swelling. It may take several months for swelling to fully dissipate.
Chin surgery, also known as mentoplasty, is a surgical procedure to reshape the chin either by enhancement with an implant or reduction surgery on the bone. Many times a plastic surgeon may recommend chin surgery to a patient having nose surgery in order to achieve facial proportion, as the size of the chin may magnify or minimize the perceived size of the nose. Chin surgery helps provide a harmonious balance to your facial features so that you feel better about the way you look.
