The chin is one of the main focal points of your face. The mandible (lower jaw bone) aligns the upper and lower teeth and forms the foundation for your face and neck. As such, this area has a bigger impact on your overall appearance than most people realize.
When the chin is shaped and positioned correctly, it can contribute to a harmonious and universally attractive look, with a defined jawline and balanced profile. However, if the chin is too short, long, full, weak or slanted, it can have an undesirable effect, creating the appearance of an overly rounded face, unbalanced features and/or a large nose. In performing chin augmentation procedures, Dr. Rahban knows precisely which surgical and artistic steps to take to sculpt a chin and jaw area that is ideally defined and positioned for his patients.
What aesthetic issues commonly affect the chin?
Chins come in a variety of shapes, sizes and positions. If you’re unhappy with the appearance of yours, it is likely because you’re suffering from one or more of the following common aesthetic issues:
A double chin is also known as “submental fullness.” It develops when a layer of fat develops just below your chin, due to weight gain, loose skin, genetics and the natural aging process. It’s one of the most common aesthetic problems relating to the chin for both men and women.Learn More >>
A weak jaw is caused by a small, short chin that slopes towards the neck. Although the condition can affect both men and women, it has different effects for each gender. For men, a strong and defined jaw is a universal feature of masculinity, so weakness in this area can feminize the face. For women, a weak jaw can create a sloping profile and the appearance of an overly prominent nose.Learn More >>
Are you a candidate for chin augmentation?
A well-done chin augmentation can be an ideal procedure for both men and women who are concerned about the way their chin relates to their other features. If you’re bothered by a recessed chin, a weak jaw, general facial aging, a large nose, submental fullness and/or sagging neck skin, there is a strong chance that this procedure can help enhance your overall appearance.Learn More >>

Fat Transfer To Chin
A fat transfer involves removing a small amount of fat from one area of the body – such as the thighs, abdomen or back – and injecting to the areas surrounding the chin. It’s an all-natural, low-risk way to create a more prominent chin and jawline.Learn More >>
More commonly referred to as a “double chin,” submental fullness can develop due to age, genetics and/or weight gain. Unfortunately, the issue is very rarely responsive to diet and exercise alone and typically requires surgical intervention to completely resolve the issue.Learn More >>
Buccal fat pad reduction
Buccal fat pad reduction involves removing some of the fat that exists in the lower area of the cheeks. The purpose of this surgery is to minimize the appearance of “chipmunk cheeks” and create a more contoured face.Learn More >>
