The chin is an important component of the overall facial profile. A chin that lacks projection can give the illusion of having a larger nose or very full, sagging neck. A patient’s chin may be augmented by placing an implant through an external incision under the chin. This incision can also be utilized to complete liposuction of the neck or tightening of the neck muscles for optimum contour as necessary. Based on your skeletal and soft tissue anatomy, Dr. Doolabh will recommend an implant that will balance the width and projection of your chin. There is a minimal amount of discomfort and swelling, and most patients return to work the following week.
