Chin augmentation, also known as mentoplasty, is a surgical procedure to enhance a weak chin with a silicone implant. The surgery is often performed in combination with nose reshaping in order to achieve facial proportion. The procedure can be done under local anesthesia in the office or combined with other procedures under general anesthesia. The incision to place the implant is made under the chin or inside the mouth at the base of the lower lip. Recovery is approximately one week. Chin augmentation can provide a more harmonious balance to your facial features.
