Chin augmentation can create better harmony between the chin and other facial features for a more balanced profile by increasing its projection.
There are two techniques for adding prominence and contour to your chin. One, performed through an incision inside the mouth, requires moving the chinbone. The other approach involves insertion of an implant. The incisions to insert the implant may be made inside the mouth or on the underside of the chin.
Similarly, in some cases the cheekbones may be built up (augmented) by placing an implant over them. This is usually performed through an incision inside the mouth, but it may be done through a lower eyelid or brow lift incision.
To permit proper healing following chin or cheek augmentation, you may be placed on a liquid diet for a day or two.
