Commonly known as chin augmentation or chin surgery (medically known as a mentoplasty), this popular surgery modifies the contour & shape of your chin to make it more attractive and fit better with the overall appearance of your face. Dr. Feledy has a history of performing excellent chin implant procedures in Washington DC.
Chin surgery or chin augmentation is a procedure where the shape of your chin is modified to give you improved symmetry with your other facial features. This process may be accomplished by using a chin implant in the case of enlargement or with surgical reduction of the bone to make your chin smaller. The procedure is often performed alongside other surgeries, such as rhinoplasty, in order to ensure the most ideal outcome and best results.
The Right Fit For You
People who find that their chins are not in proportion with the rest of their face can often benefit from chin surgery. Patients should be generally healthy and have reasonable expectations about what surgery can offer. An overly prominent chin can be corrected with a chin reduction surgery while a weak chin can be augmented using chin implants.
A More Pleasing Contour
A chin reduction begins with an incision, usually inside the mouth, where scarring cannot be seen. The bone at the tip of the chin is detached and reshaped in order to provide a more pleasing contour. The chin structure may also be reshaped using other methods. The incisions are then sutured.
"From a pretty young age I had become introverted on how my chin was small and sort of ran into my neck. I'd heard of getting a chin augmentation and I am so glad I did. It greatly improved the look of my face and neck and I feel so much more confident.”
