3 Benefits of Chin Augmentation

Many people pay little attention to how their chin affects their appearance, but if you have a recessed or small chin, this facial feature can affect your confidence and make your profile look out of balance. Genioplasty or chin augmentation can give you a strong, sculpted chin that defines your lower face and gives harmony to your features. 

What is Chin Augmentation or Genioplasty?

Chin augmentation is a procedure that enhances the appearance and projection of your chin. It can be performed in several ways depending on your goals, facial anatomy, and other factors

Augmentation Genioplasty

This type of genioplasty uses an implant fitted against your jawbone so your chin has more projection and looks more defined. The implant may be made of silicone or another body-safe material called ePTFE. It is intended to stay in place for a lifetime unless you want to remove it. 

Sliding Genioplasty

During this procedure, incisions are made to give Dr. Sonneveld access to the bones that shape your chin. He will adjust or reposition this bone, then use screws or plates to secure it in place while it heals. While this technique is more invasive, it can treat more severely recessed chins. 

3 Benefits of Chin Augmentation

Chin augmentation reshapes more than just your chin. It can change the appearance of your entire face. Benefits of this procedure include:

Shape a Stronger Profile

When viewed from the side, a receding chin can affect the shape of your entire lower face. Chin augmentation gives your chin the projection it needs to define your profile for an overall more sculpted appearance.

Balance Your Features

If you have a small chin, your nose or other features may look too large by comparison. If you think your nose is too big, you may find that this procedure gives you a chin that balances your nose and makes your features look proportionate. 

Look and Feel More Confident

While the shape of your chin does not reflect anything about your character, many people associate a strong chin and jawline with more confidence and assertiveness. Chin augmentation will also leave you feeling more confident about your appearance and no longer bothered by the shape or size of your chin.
