Chin Augmentation – Visage Cosmetic Clinic is a cosmetic surgery which is performed to enhance the chin area. It is a common procedure that can improve a woman’s profile and reduce the size of the nose. The surgery may be combined with rhinoplasty to create a more balanced facial appearance.

The surgery involves placing an implant under the chin bone to augment the area. Implants are available in different shapes and sizes and are custom fitted to the patient’s unique facial structure. The procedure begins with a consultation with Dr. Anthony Bittar, who will then determine where the implant will be placed. The procedure takes about a half-inch incision and the incision is closed with sutures. After surgery, the patient can resume normal activity within a few days.
There are several different types of chin implants, including solid and soft silicone ones. The implant material is selected depending on the shape of the lower face and the desired facial lengthening. Men generally need wider implants to create a broader jaw, while women may need smaller ones to create a feminine or oval shape. Since implants are custom-made, they require an excellent surgeon with expertise and experience.
The risks of chin augmentation are minimal. Generally, a small incision will be made beneath the chin, which will then be filled with a solid silicone implant. The implant will be secured into position so it will last a lifetime. After the procedure, patients will experience bruising and minor discomfort, but these are usually mild and easily treatable.
