Chin Augmentation

A well defined jawline is synonymous with a stunning and appealing face whether it be a man or a woman. It makes one’s face look structured and contoured which is the crux of an attractive appearance. However, sometimes people lack this feature and have a weak or a recessed chin. A weak or a deformed chin can affect the overall appearance of the face as it is not harmonious with other facial features. This can make them conscious of their appearance and lower their self esteem. 

Dr Santosh Bhatia of Vanity Cosmetic Clinic gives an effective solution to gain a perfectly structured and enhanced jawline with the help of a chin augmentation surgery.

Chin is a major part of the face as the facial shape is defined with a well formed chin. However, many times, the chin is weak or recessed due to various reasons. This affects the overall appearance of the face. A chin augmentation generally aims at correcting this issue by enhancing the weak chin to have a contoured and perfectly defined jaw structure.

Also often referred to as genioplasty, this process aims at either moving the jaw bone forward in order to structure the face in a better way or by placing silicone implants through small incisions. Commonly, implant based chin augmentation is followed.
