Chin Augmentation for a More Defined Appearance
A well-contoured chin can greatly enhance your appearance. If you are interested in improving a sloping, small, or unevenly shaped chin, consider chin augmentation at our Halifax, Nova Scotia, cosmetic surgery practice. During chin augmentation, our surgeons will place a carefully selected implant under your skin. These implants come in a variety of shapes and sizes. We will choose an implant that will provide the most natural results and pleasing facial contours. We can also implement several surgical techniques to achieve the aesthetic effects you desire. To learn whether chin augmentation is right for you, contact The Landings Surgical Centre.
Who is a Candidate?
If you believe your chin is too small, or that it slopes unevenly, chin augmentation can help improve its appearance. The procedure is appropriate for both men and women.
Following surgery, your enhanced jawline can give your face greater definition and character, making you feel more self-confident and ready to embrace new challenges.
Candidates for chin augmentation should be in good overall health and have sufficient skin elasticity. It is also important to have reasonable expectations for treatment. Dr. Richard Bendor-Samuel or Dr. Louis Boileau will review these factors with you at your initial consultation.
The Procedure Details
You will be an integral part of the procedure planning process, to ensure a surgery that meets your aesthetic goals. The implants are available in many different shapes and sizes. Together, we will select an implant that will achieve the proper shape and projection. Through detailed treatment planning, we can provide subtle, natural results. The implant can be positioned in one of two ways:
- Extraoral: With this technique, an incision is created underneath your chin. Our surgeons are very experienced and precise. Therefore, scarring should be virtually invisible. This technique may also be the right option if you are going to receive a larger implant.
- Intraoral: With this technique, we will create an incision inside your mouth, leaving no visible scarring. However, the same degree of precision is not possible using this technique.
Many patients choose to undergo chin augmentation in conjunction with rhinoplasty. This combined treatment can help improve the overall proportions of your face. Dr. Bendor-Samuel or Dr. Boileau will explain the pros and cons of each method, helping you select the right option for you.
What are the Benefits?
Regardless of the technique selected, chin augmentation can have effective, attractive results. Your chin is a defining feature of your face. Following surgery, your enhanced jawline can give your face greater definition and character, making you feel more self-confident and ready to embrace new challenges.
Chin augmentation involves minimal risks. But as with all surgeries, complications are possible. These are less likely, however, when you choose an experienced plastic surgeon like the surgeons at The Landings Surgery Centre. Additionally, since chin augmentation requires a very small incision, there is less discomfort and recovery time than with other facial plastic surgeries.
