What is Chin Augmentation?
Chin augmentation surgery uses chin implants to supplement the existing bone at the front of the jaw. The artificial implant sits under the skin and gives a permanent boost to the strength and definition of the chin. This augmentation method can give patients a pleasing, well-proportioned look that seems completely natural.
A cosmetic chin enlargement procedure is generally performed on an outpatient basis. The length of time the procedure takes depends on several factors but is usually from 45 minutes to an hour and a half. The incision done during the operation is made underneath the chin. Once the incisions are made, the chin implant is inserted and positioned in front of the jawbone and fixed. The incision is closed in layers to result in a fine scar.
