Your chin is personal. It makes a strong impression when you look at photos and in the mirror. It is a part of who you are. For most people, it may be considered a feature that is hardly noticeable. However, the opposite is true if you feel that your chin is not in proportion with the rest of your face. If your chin is receding, it can look like there is barely anything there at all. Chin surgery can help you to make your chin stand out, balancing out the appearance of your face. Believe it or not, this procedure can change your whole outlook on life.
What Happens During Chin Surgery?
The first step is to talk with our board-certified plastic surgeon and express your desire to alter your chin. Chin surgery is a common form of cosmetic surgery. A chin implant is used to enhance your chin and change the contours of your jaw. In some cases, the chin doesn’t protrude like you would expect. Chin surgery allows our plastic surgeon to insert an implant into your chin. The goal is to provide your face with enhanced definition. A relatively small incision can be made in such a way that a scar is not noticeable. In the end, you will finally have a chin that you will be happy to see when you catch a glimpse of yourself.
Is Chin Surgery Right for You?
If you are in good health and don’t smoke, you are off to a good start. Our plastic surgeon will check into your health history in order to make sure you do not have an underlying condition that could pose a problem for you during chin surgery.
If you do not feel that your chin is the right proportion for your face or you are not happy with the shape of your chin, chin surgery could be the best option for you. This surgery allows our plastic surgeon to take what you already have and build upon that foundation with a chin implant. The implant is permanent, meaning you will not have to undergo a procedure again.
