Chin Augmentation Surgery
Chin augmentation, commonly referred as “chin enhancement” or “chin implant”, can restore or create improved facial balance and harmony. In particular, a “weak” chin on a man may feminize the face and may even unjustifiably carry negative psychological overtones about his character. For the female, a weak chin may make a prominent nose appear even more so. Combining chin enhancement with cosmetic nose surgery may provide the ideal solution to perfecting one’s profile while maintaining proper relationship between facial structures. For the individual with a relatively short neck, chin enhancement can provide the illusion of a longer neck and thereby improve one’s profile. Neck liposuction in these individuals may further enhance the intended cosmetic benefit. For the maturing face, chin enhancement can provide a framework around which the is supported and lifted. However, Dr. Lam does not routinely believe in combining chin enhancement with facial rejuvenative procedures, like facelifting, as chin augmentation can make a person who has grown acclimated to the way he or she appears at times look somewhat “different”.
Chin enhancement consultation begins with a careful analysis of your teeth, your nose, and your other facial features. If your bite is very off, Dr. Lam may recommend dental or orthodontic consultation first. Combining a procedure with lower face, cosmetic nose surgery and/or neck liposuction, facelifting may enhance your result; and Dr. Lam will study these parts of your face to determine whether you would benefit from these procedures. Of particular importance is digital imaging to help guide you in your decision. As you rarely see your own profile, it may oftentimes be difficult to conceptualize what benefit chin enhancement will provide you until you view your projected result using digital photographic analysis.
Dr. Lam relies on a specialized type of chin implant that extends across most of the lower jawline. This implant has many distinct advantages: 1) a seamlessly natural result without the edges of the implant being able to be seen or felt 2) enhancement of the entire jawline rather than just the middle of the chin 3) improvement in the jawline contour, especially in older individuals who have prominent jowls in addition to a weak chin.
