Why get chin augmentation surgery?
For someone who is unhappy with their chin, or who experiences a lack of confidence as a result of a small chin, chin augmentation surgery can have many benefits, including:
- Allowing the face to look more balanced, with a chin size that fits with the rest of the face’s features
- Reduce the double chin appearance that can be caused by a small chin bone
- Correct a weak, or recessed, chin
- Improve confidence
What does chin augmentation surgery involve?
Chin augmentation surgery is performed under general anaesthesia, which means the patient is unconscious during the procedure. Patients can return home the same day.
During the surgery, the plastic surgeon first makes a small incision underneath the chin or inside the mouth. The surgeon fits the implant around the chin bone through this space, before closing the incision.
