Chin augmentation is also called chin implant surgery. It is a facial plastic surgery whose purpose is to improve your chin’s definition by making it larger, or more prominent, or projected. Depending on your needs, you could opt for permanent chin implants or non-invasive injections.
Are you unhappy with how your chin looks? Here are seven ways an appointment with Norman J. Pastorek, MD, PC, FACS could improve your appearance:
Chin implants are made from different biocompatible materials. During the chin augmentation procedure, some of these materials are connected to existing bones in your chin and lower jaw. This means that the aesthetic results will be long lasting if not permanent. Since the implant is also fixed atop your natural chin, it also means that the effects will be natural-looking.
As already mentioned, chin implants are fixed atop your natural chin and may be linked with your lower jaw. The final outcome is an improved appearance of the jaw and the surrounding facial features. Depending on your preferences, your enhanced jaw could be used to enhance your femininity or masculinity. What’s more, chin augmentation could eliminate the need for jaw implants.
There are many forms of chin augmentation treatments available today. If you are not ready to commit to the budget and recovery time that comes with surgery, you can opt for a non-surgical option as an introductory procedure. Your specialist will inject dermal fillers into your chin to add volume, with minimal pain and downtime.
It is important to note, nonetheless, that the results of this non-surgical option are not permanent.
Refines Side Profile
Chin augmentation does more than improve the appearance of your chin. It could also refine your side-profile by harmonizing your chin with other facial features such as your nose. In essence, the balance created will ensure you look your best from all angles, including your profile and side views.
Most people shy away from plastic surgery because they fear that the results will drastically change their appearance. On the contrary, chin augmentation produces perfectly natural-looking effects. The implants come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and materials, which means you can work with your doctor to pick one that matches your anatomy.
Some patients do not wish to share the fact that they underwent elective surgery. If you decide to go with chin implants, you should rest easy in the fact that the incisions will be small and discreet. Your doctor will usually make them inside your lip or under the chin, which means you can easily conceal them if you so wish.
How you look gives you the confidence to be yourself and interact with other people. If you are uncomfortable with the appearance of your chin, you might lose some of your confidence. Chin augmentation helps you look like the best version of yourself, giving you the confidence you deserve.
The benefits of chin augmentation go beyond the physical. The enhanced appearance can significantly improve your self-confidence and emotional well-being. If you are considering the procedure, you should discuss your eligibility and the benefits and risks with a specialist. Contact Dr. Pastorek to schedule an appointment today.
