Introduction To Cosmetic Chin Augmentation Surgery

Introduction to chin implants - Learning about chin augmentation surgery

Chin implants can be used for either cosmetic or reconstructive enhancement of the jaw line. In this section, we will focus on the cosmetic uses for chin implants. However, a lot of the information is contained here also applies to the reconstructive uses of chin implants as well.

Chin implants are used to improve the appearance of your jaw line and to provide a more natural-looking break between your neck and your face. The goal of chin augmentation is to use the chin implants to give greater definition to your chin and provide balance with the rest of your face.

According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), chin augmentation with implant is the procedure of choice for most patients with normally functioning teeth and jaw development. A chin implant is made of synthetic material that feels much like natural chin tissue and comes in a variety of sizes and shapes. Another option involves moving the lower section of the bone forward and wiring it into place. The result is a stronger or wider chin, and even a face shape that is longer.

The chin implant section of FaceForum's website has been designed for people who wish to learn more about cosmetic chin augmentation. Our goal is to provide you with a foundation for understanding the chin augmentation procedure. We have done our best to collect information for you, but you must understand that this section will not answer all of your questions about chin implants.  It is not intended to replace the advice your receive in a one-on-one consultation with your plastic surgeon.
