Although many people do not notice it, a weak chin can significantly affect facial appearance, causing the nose to look larger or the neck to look loose. Chin augmentation is often performed to provide a more balanced facial appearance and create a chin that is stronger, wider or longer, depending on each patient’s individual goals.
During the procedure, an implant is inserted into the chin through a small incision underneath. The implant is placed into a pocket and secured. This procedure usually takes about 30 minutes to perform, with patients usually able to return to work and other regular activities in a few days.
