Chin Augmentation

A chin augment is used to improve the balance of the facial skeleton and overall facial appearance.  It is used where there is significant chin recession to balance the chin with the nose and the rest of the face.

Chin augmentation is used either alone or often in combination with a rhinoplasty to improve facial balance. A small incision is placed usually in the skin crease below the chin to insert the augment which normally heals very well.

It is performed under a short general anaesthetic.
