Chin Augmentation – Implants vs. Reduction – San Ramon
Chin augmentation, technically named mentoplasty, is a surgery procedure that reshapes the chin through implant enhancements or reduction of the bone. The goal of chin augmentation is to create aesthetic symmetry or reshape deformities from birth or trauma. Consulting with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Michelle Place is a good way to determine how mentoplasty can help you.
Chin augmentation that uses implants is an ideal technique for those who are concerned about having a diminished or “weak” chin. The implants are a permanent alternative to other options like injectable fillers. The implant is inserted surgically and may be used to create a wider, lengthier or more prominent chin. Implants are often made of solid silicone, but there are harder materials available.
