Chin Augmentation in Bedford Hills, NY at Bellava
A chin augmentation using surgical implants has become one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures carried out today.
A chin augmentation often involves surgical implants to correct a weak chin or provide better balance and enhance the overall appearance of the face.
Chin augmentation can create a more harmonious profile, refining facial definition and contour. In some cases, patients require a chin reduction rather than an implant, to correct an oversized or protruding chin.
Chin surgery (mentoplasty) may also be performed with other facial procedures such as rhinoplasty (nose reshaping).
A chin augmentation can:
- Enhance a receded or “weak” chin
- Create a stronger jawline
- Create a more balanced facial profile
