Chin Implants and Chin Augmentation

The chin is a vital component of your facial shape, creating a heart-shaped face or defined jawline when balanced with the rest of the facial features. If the chin is less-pronounced, the bottom of the face can appear unbalanced, detracting from the overall appearance. Dr. Rousso, at our facial plastic surgery clinic in New York City, offers chin implants and chin augmentations to create a symmetrical, balanced appearance to enhance the overall beauty of the face.

Chin augmentation is a facial cosmetic surgery that is performed for many different reasons to bring balance to the face. For some, genetics endowed them with a “weak” chin that lacks definition and impacts the shape of the face. Adding a chin implant can provide the frame to their mouth and neck they desire, balancing all their features. For others, chin implants can be used to create a more pronounced jaw line, especially in those desiring a more masculine appearance. Chin augmentation can also be performed with a neck lift, giving a more defined profile and youthful appearance to the lower face and neck.

What Are the Benefits Chin Implants?

For chin augmentations, biocompatible chin implants are often the preferred option. The implants can be formed to create the exact shape and size that will transform the face to the desired proportions. For men, this may be more exaggerated, while women tend to want a softer appearance to the chin. The implants can help the nose appear smaller, and it is common for patients to have a rhinoplasty and chin augmentation together. Chin implants also can be combined with neck lifts, neck liposuction or a face lift, helping accentuate a more youthful appearance to the neck and face.

If you have a receded chin and want to explore the options in augmentation, contact our office in NYC to schedule a chin implant consultation with Dr. Rousso.
