Chin Augmentation Candidacy
For men and women who feel that their chins are not properly sized, shaped or positioned, chin augmentation can offer the ideal solution. In addition, many patients who initially seek out plastic surgery to resolve other, seemingly unrelated issues – such as a large nose, general facial aging or a weak jaw – often find that cosmetic chin surgery can enhance their procedures and ensure a profound transformation. This is because chin augmentation infuses the face with universally attractive proportions, balancing and improving all of your features in the process.
What Procedure Do I Need?
When it comes to augmenting your chin, no two approaches are exactly alike – because no two patients share the same facial anatomy. With that said, there are certain procedures that Dr. Rahban tends to recommend for specific aesthetic imperfections. Please keep in mind that in many cases, your treatment will consist of a custom blend of these surgeries to ensure an ideal outcome.Learn More >>
Are you a candidate for chin augmentation?
Ideal candidates for chin augmentation with Dr. Rahban typically report the following cosmetic concerns:Weak chin and jaw
A weak chin can have a massive impact on your face. It can create a rounded appearance, make your neck appear fleshy and throw off your facial proportions. By strengthening the area with a prominent, ideally sized implant, Dr. Rahban can create a more balanced and attractive overall look.General facial aging
When most patients consider the way they’re aging, they don’t immediately think of their chin. They’re more likely to notice sunken eyes, deep wrinkles and a general loss of volume. However, poor definition in this area is a telltale sign of aging that can add years to your appearance. A chin implant can create a more distinct jaw and neck area, which revitalizes the entire face.Smaller nose
While it’s true that a chin implant can’t change the core shape of your nose, it can make it appear much smaller. In many cases, the nose simply appears too large because the chin is too small. By increasing the prominence of the chin, the nose suddenly fits in more with the remaining facial features.
In some cases, patients request a completely different procedure, only to learn that cosmetic chin surgery is what’s required to achieve their ideal look. For example, depending on your unique needs, Dr. Rahban may perform the following procedures in conjunction with a chin augmentation:Facelift
Dr. Rahban often enhances his facelift procedures with cosmetic chin surgery. This allows him to optimize the tightening and toning effects of the facelift, while improving the neck contour.Rhinoplasty
A weak chin can increase the prominence of the nose. As such, many rhinoplasty patients discover that they are able to achieve their ideal, balanced profile by reducing the nose and enhancing the chin simultaneously.Facial Fat Transfer
Facial fat transfer takes fat from one area of the body and gives it to another. The fat is purified before reinjection. When reinjected, a fat transfer can provide volume restoration for a smoother, more balanced appearance. When combined with chin augmentation, facial fat transfer provides a comprehensive result.Fillers
Fillers are a terrific, non-surgical way to treat many telltale signs of aging. However, they are not permanent and need to be repeated regularly to maintain your results. Instead of using fillers to address marionette lines and pre-jowl sulcus (the areas on either side of your chin that tend to droop with age), Dr. Rahban may recommend a strategically placed chin implant, which is both permanent and extremely effective.
