The chin, like the cheek, is very 3 Dimensional. Even though reduction is easily performed, many men request augmentation or enhancement. Using careful analysis and photography, the surgeon and patient together can determine the extent of augmentation desired as well as the dimension and vector of the change to be made.
An implant, which is placed through a hidden incision under the chin, is the most commonly performed type of augmentation. There is a large variety of implants that are available depending on the patient’s anatomy and desired result. The procedure can be performed under general or local anesthesia.
Facial fillers can also be used as a simple way to obtain changes in the chin. Using facial fillers in the chin is predictable and can give a great result, but like all facial fillers are temporary.
Jaw augmentation procedures are a great way to enhance the definition of the angle of the mandible along the jawline. A person with a weaker jawline gains great benefit from this as it not only strengthens the appearance of the jaw, but it creates a more refined jawline and neck. Jaw augmentation can be accomplished with implants through hidden incisions in the mouth or with Facial Fillers as with other areas in the face. Both have been used to achieve significant, natural and results that are liable.
