Chin Augmentation

Chin Augmentation

Chin augmentation, also known as mentoplasty, is performed to improve your facial balance and a "weak" chin. It is a surgical procedure that reshapes the chin either by augmentation with an implant or reduction surgery on the bone. Your surgeon may recommend chin surgery if you are having a rhinoplasty in order to achieve facial proportion. Chin surgery helps provide a harmonious balance to your facial features so that you feel better about the way you look.
