Chin Augmentation Surgery in Houston

A well-defined chin is a major feature of one’s profile. Those with a receding or too-prominent chin may consider mentoplasty, chin surgery, to create a more balanced appearance. The procedure to augment the chin begins with an incision either in the natural crease line under the chin or inside the mouth. A synthetic implant is inserted and carefully sutured, leaving an imperceptible scar. In some cases, the bone is cut and the chin is moved forward. A metal plate with screws is inserted into the chin in order to achieve this effect. Chin reduction surgery involves similar incisions, after which the bone is sculpted into a more aesthetically pleasing shape and size. With either procedure, excess fatty tissue may also be removed to redefine the chin or neckline.
