Chin Implant Sizes
Chin augmentation using surgical implants can alter the underlying structure of the face, providing better balance to the facial features. Chin augmentation, technically known as mentoplasty, can be performed to correct abnormalities due to a small chin at birth, or as the result of injury or the effects of aging. Chin augmentation can enhance the profile and/or facial structure and create balance. Chin implants come in different styles and shapes. Which implant is used is dependent on the amount of augmentation needed and the location of where the augmentation is placed along the jawline.
An implant can extend the profile in projection, in width or in height. Your surgeon will need to analyze where the deficiency is and choose the properly shaped implant to enhance the face’s overall appearance. The chin, like the nose, is a prominent facial feature. Many patients seek to alter the chin to enhance their facial contour.
The chin implant procedure is highly individualized, and there are several sizes and shapes of implants available. Prior to chin augmentation surgery in Denver, Dr. Serota will evaluate your bone structure and anatomy to help select the proper chin implant and size to help you achieve your goals.
Chin implants may be used to enlarge a chin and create a stronger profile. Implant materials may also be used to lengthen a chin that appears too short. Through experience and proper planning, Dr. Serota can create a stronger or softer, more youthful and rejuvenated facial appearance, thus improving your image and self-esteem.
