Chin implant also medically known as a mentoplasty is a procedure that is done to improve the profile of the chin. It may not be the most often requested surgical procedure but what most people fail to realize is that it is also just as important as the nose in creating an attractive profile. This led some individual to grow beards to conceal their weak or sagging chins or cleverly disguise it with scarves or turtlenecks.
A chin implant is done by either injecting dermal fillers or inserting implants to the area. This results to a more defined chin and jaw line. The result may not be as dramatic but the subtleness is enough to create that enhanced profile.
For those who find their face to be a little too rounded, a chin implant can help create better angles. As mentioned earlier it can result to a more distinct jaw line and facial contours. The procedure can fashion the chin in a shape that will be proportionate to the rest of the face.
Adding to this, it can be said that beauty is also defined by angles. When the chin is augmented or sculpted to make it more appropriate to the face, it can result to a more attractive profile with a triangular appearance. For those who may have had weak chins, this can make the lower half of the face longer and structured.
A chin implant procedure can also enhance the appearance of other nearby facial features. One that is also prominently located on the face is the nose. Both these physical features balance and/or enhance one or the other. When the two are fashioned properly they result to a balance that creates harmony or what is cosmetically called as a facial duet. A prominent nose with a weak chin can make the nose appear larger and disproportionate.
Another procedure that would also create best results when done together with chin augmentation is a neck lift or a chin liposuction. This area is particularly vulnerable to the effects of aging or obesity resulting to a les defined lower face, which we oftentimes refer to as a double chin.
Only a surgeon who has the discerning eye for detail can fashion the chin and its nearby structures (submentum and jawline) in a way that can make the patient appear slimmer. In addition to this, only a highly competent cosmetic surgeon would be able to structure the chin in a way that would complement the nose.
The good thing about a chin augmentation procedure is that it is relatively easy and it can be reversed since the implants can be removed and rearranged. Scarring is also not a problem because the small incision will be strategically placed on the area underneath the chin. The healing time is also much faster, and the price is not that expensive.
So if you want to have that facial balance, especially when you are also contemplating on having a rhinoplasty done, a chin implant would enhance the results further. But you just have to make sure that you start it off by finding a reputable surgeon if you want impressive results.
