Chin Surgery and Implants by Houston Cosmetic Surgeon
Aesthetically, the chin looks the most balanced when it projects as far as the lower lip. A retrusive chin often causes the corners of the mouth to turn downward and look “unhappy.” Facial surgery utilizing a silicone rubber implant is placed through a small incision inside the mouth (no external scars). Besides the mouth posture, chin implants can improve the jowls, and the hanging tissue in the neck. It can give a man a more masculine jaw line and a woman a more aristocratic neck and jaw line.
WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM CHIN IMPLANTS?
Chin augmentation is a cosmetic surgery procedure. It is important that you be in good health, both physically and mentally. If you have had any special problems with your teeth, your mouth or your jaw, inform your Houston cosmetic surgeon. (These problems do not necessarily prevent you from getting a chin implant, but your plastic surgeon must factor in their effects to determine the best course of treatment for you.)
Having the proper attitude and realistic expectations is also important. While a chin implant can provide you with a significantly improved look, you should not expect to achieve perfection.
Chin augmentation can give your face and neck a more balanced look and help to eliminate a “chinless” look. The chin implant procedure can be done as a standalone surgery, or combined with other Houston cosmetic surgery procedures.
