Any disproportions or lack of balance in the facial features can drastically affect how anyone feels about their overall appearance, and negatively affect their self-confidence. One feature that can determine one’s confidence in their facial appearance is their chin, as having a proportionately-sized chin will allow for a pleasing jawline, profile, and entire lower face. Chin augmentations are a great way to rebalance the face, providing definition to the jawline and profile through a beautiful and strong chin.
Chin augmentation is a cosmetic surgical procedure that is done to reshape the chin, either done through the implementation of an enhancing implant or by reshaping the jaw bones. It is typically performed as a cosmetic facial procedure for those who are displeased with the amount that their chin protrudes from the jaw, often to provide augmentation to a chin that is under projected, or just doesn’t protrude enough for the patients’ liking. The addition of volume to the chin requires a fitted implant to be surgically placed and may also require some movement or reshaping of the jaw bone surrounding to provide a natural result. Chin augmentation surgeries provide permanent results as the implants are permanently set in place so patients do not need to worry about maintenance treatments as long as they are pleased with their final result.
Results from a chin augmentation surgery can drastically change the entire face through the added definition, providing a beautiful contour to the profile, jawline, and lower face. Those who receive chin augmentations are typically unsatisfied with the appearance of their profile and jawline, and just the addition of the chin implant can provide a strong, aesthetically appealing jawline. Majority of the cases of chin augmentations will really benefit from the procedure because they lack a natural balance in their different facial features and would be considered more attractive with a proportionate chin and jawline. Those who are unhappy with their jawline who undergo a chin augmentation surgery will find that the chin provides more shape and definition to the jawline, improving the overall appearance of the lower face.
The biggest differences between chin fillers and a chin augmentation surgery are in the results. All dermal fillers are temporary, often only offering the final results for around 12 months before the ingredients start to naturally dissolve in the body, whereas a chin augmentation surgery will offer permanent results that can offer improvements that will last a lifetime. Additionally, the results that are possible to achieve from a chin augmentation surgery can be far more dramatic than what is possible through dermal fillers alone. Only so much filler can be injected while still appearing and feeling as if it is the natural bone, whereas a chin augmentation can be done using an implant and reshaping the surrounding jawbone, which will look and feel like a naturally strong chin and can completely alter the appearance of the lower face with an appealing jawline. However, chin augmentation procedures involve surgery, so they will be more expensive for the one procedure (though the cost of fillers repeatedly administered over the years will add up), require recovery time, and come with the risks associated with surgical procedures and being put under. Proceeding with a chin augmentation procedure is a fairly large commitment, the implants can be removed but that would require another surgery, so many patients will start with receiving dermal fillers in the chin to see if they like the results before undergoing the permanent surgical procedure.
Those who may be considered to undergo a chin augmentation surgery includes patients who are unhappy with the appearance of their chin due to it lacking projection or being too short, causing their chin to appear disproportionate to the rest of the jawline and face. All candidates must be aware of the risks associated with a surgical procedure and will need to be informed and have realistic expectations regarding the procedure. In order to safely undergo a cosmetic surgical procedure, good candidates will also need to be considered as physically healthy, able to maintain a stable weight, and are nonsmokers.
