Chin Augmentation – Chin Implants

Beverly Hills & Los Angeles

Chin augmentation surgery, also known as mentoplasty / genioplasty, is a surgical procedure to reshape the chin either by enhancement with an implant or reduction surgery on the bone. Many times a plastic surgeon may recommend chin surgery to a patient having nose surgery in order to achieve facial proportion, as the size of the chin may magnify or minimize the perceived size of the nose. Furthermore, chin surgery can strengthen the jawline in youth and in combination with a facelift and neck lift. Chin surgery helps provide a harmonious balance to your facial features so that you feel better about the way you look.

Many people choose to undergo the chin augmentation procedure with noted Los Angeles & Beverly Hills chin augmentation surgeon Dr. Ghavami. A deficient or “weak” chin structure is the prevalent reason for this procedure, in which an implant is placed under the skin to enhance the appearance of the jaw line and profile. A short chin can be brought out via these implants, which add symmetry and harmony to face shape. This is known as genioplasty. Dr. Ghavami has written extensively for medical textbooks on this highly specialized topic. For this reason, Dr. Ghavmi’s practice is one of the few places in Los Angeles that also performs chin bone advancement techniques in addition to chin augmentation with silicone implants.

Implants for chin augmentation either come in the form of bone (or bone substitutes such as hydroxyapatite granules and gels) or in the form of synthetic material, such as silastic (silicone) material. The patient and Dr. Ghavami discuss the desired implant size and appearance and then decide on what would best suit the patient aesthetically and realistically.

Chin augmentation under the skilled hands of Dr. Ghavami is a great decision for anyone dissatisfied with their face shape and chin size. Many times this procedure is combined with nasal shaping or rhinoplasty in order to produce the proper most appealing facial harmony.
