Patients who want an aesthetic improvement and the appropriate proportion of facial features can benefit from the increase or decrease of the chin or chin, to make it proportional to the rest of the face.

There are people who have a retracted chin or chin, that is to say, small and not very visible, while others have an excessive and very protruding large chin. The chin is an important part of a person’s profile, as well as their facial balance.

It can be carried out using a solid silicone prosthesis or implant.

To insert the implant, a small incision is made in the skin below the chin. This surgery is done under local anesthesia and sedation and is outpatient. The chin can also be augmented by infiltrating the patient’s fat, using the lipoinjection technique.

Through reduction of a portion of the jaw bone, through sections of the bone (or osteotomies) also using the intraoral route. To reduce an overly prominent chin or correct asymmetries, it will be necessary to scrape or cut the bone (osteotomy) through an incision located inside the mouth.
