What a chin augmentation can do for your appearance

A strong and prominent chin is often thought to reflect a strong personality. Also the chin is one of the parts of the face that gives it character. Both the nose and jaw line reflect the chins proportions.

A weak or fleeing chin can make a nose appear larger than it actually is and leave the face with an unproportioned profile. A chin enhancement can therefore dramatically alter and improve your appearance.

Despite the vast change a chin enlargement can achieve it is not unusual for people who see the person after undergoing a chin enlargement to not actually notice it. Most often, people will merely notice that the person’s appearance has improved but not how.

Are you a suitable candidate for a chin enlargement?

As previously mentioned a chin enlargement can change the shape, reduce or enlarge the chin. The patients that are most suitable for a chin enlargement are therefore people with uneven, prominent, weak or in some cases underdeveloped chins.

The most common patient wish is to reinforce the chin which is done through a chin augmentation. Such a procedure has a direct effect since the chin becomes more distinguished providing the face with more definition. Another effect is that the nose is often perceived as smaller since the proportions in regard to the chin are altered.

People with a nose that is slightly large in proportion to the faces other proportions are therefore often very pleased with their chin augmentation. It is not uncommon that patients seeking a rhinoplasty are instead recommended a chin enhancement.

For chin enlargements as with all plastic surgery, patients in good physical and mental health with realistic expectations of their surgery results are seen as suitable candidates.

Since chin enhancement surgery is the chin procedure in greatest demand the following articles focus on this procedure. Enjoy!
