Chin implants or chin augmentation is a commonly requested procedure. The chin is an important reference point in relationship to the rest of the facial features such as the neck, nose, lips, and forehead. In fact, a chin implant can significantly strengthen facial features, enhance the profile of the face, and create better overall facial harmony.
There are a variety of chin implant materials to consider, and Dr. Hoffman can help guide you through understanding your selection. There are also two methods for performing this procedure. Patients can choose to have the implant inserted either through an incision beneath the chin or inside the mouth, below the lip. The latter option is a good option to consider because it avoids visible scarring.
