A weak chin may alter your facial appearance. It can also make your perfectly sized nose appear too large, or make your neck look “fleshy.” Chin augmentation with implants — also called mentoplasty — may help. Chin implants can correct a weak chin, strengthen the appearance of a receding chin or improve the overall appearance of your face and profile by restoring balance.
The implant itself comes in various shapes and sizes. It can be used to fashion a chin that is stronger or wider, and can even make your face appear longer. The chin implant is placed over the existing bone structure of your lower jaw to increase its dimensions and produce your desired result.
You may have used soft tissue fillers such as Juvederm® or Restylane® to try to create a stronger chin line, and liked the result. If so, you may be an especially good candidate for a chin implant, which will provide a more permanent, lasting solution.
