Facial balance and harmony through proper proportions are important aspects of the aesthetic appearance of the face. Chin implants are an important aspect to improving the facial profile in patients with a small and/or recessed chin.
What can be accomplished with a chin implant?
For an individual with a small or recessed chin that is not in correct proportion to the rest of the face (especially the nose), a chin implant contributes to restoring overall facial harmony and balance.
This procedure cannot correct a jaw deformity or tooth malocclusion (underbite or overbite) but is an excellent choice for an individual with a normal facial structure that just needs more chin projection to balance the remainder of the facial features (forehead and nose).
