Chin augmentation surgery, also known as mentoplasty, is performed to achieve a harmonious balance of facial features. A prominent, well-defined chin is typically portrayed as an established and strong trait. Additionally, chin augmentation can help one achieve a more aesthetically pleasing profile. If you live in Boca Raton, Florida, Dr. Berman performs chin augmentation for patients who want a better-proportioned, symmetrical, and balanced facial structure.
Generally, Dr. Berman suggests chin implants to correct an inadequate chin contour. During the procedure, Dr. Berman creates a small, inconspicuous incision to place the implant over the mentum, or chin bone. Implants come in various shapes and sizes, and the mentoplasty is highly customizable based on your own anatomy and specific cosmetic goals. After the implant is positioned, stitches are used to close the small incision.
When a patient has too large of a chin, Dr. Berman will suggest a reduction surgery of the chin bone.
Dr. Berman has over 24 years of experience and understands every patient is different. He dedicates himself to listening to each patient’s concern and strives to provide exceptional personal care. If you are unhappy with the definition or prominence of your chin, contact Berman Plastic Surgery & Spa today to schedule your initial consultation, and feel better about the way you look!
How a Chin Augmentation Is Performed
Chin augmentation is a relatively quick procedure, typically lasting taking no more than 60 minutes. Dr. Berman’s results are extraordinary: patients are very satisfied. Some individuals often request their chin to be augmented with a rhinoplasty procedure to ensure good balance and facial harmony. Often when the neck or jawline is improved with neck liposuction, neck lifting or facelifting, a chin implant may be placed to “complete the play.” to get a more pleasant cosmetic result.
