Chin Augmentation technically called genioplasty or mentoplasty is a cosmetic procedure that strengthens the appearance of a chin by increasing its projection.
The goal of chin augmentation is to enhance your facial appearance by creating a better balance between your chin and other facial parts.
Chin augmentation can be done through many different methods such as surgical and non-surgical.
Surgical Chin Augmentation
Cuts are made inside your lower lip or hidden below your chin. A small hollow is then formed and the implant is installed and adjusted in position. You will be given general anesthesia during the procedure to minimize any discomfort.
Non-Surgical Chin Augmentation
The injectable fillers used in non-surgical chin augmentation are injected in small amounts and in specific areas so that there is total control over the shape and contours created by the procedure. Results last for one year with Radiesse and are permanent with Artefill.
Because the material becomes part of your skin, even the permanent implant Artefill should change as your face changes over time and you always retain a natural look.
Another procedure that can be done in combination with Chin augmentation is a nose job.
