Harmony and balance in facial features makes the face more attractive and beautiful. In a profile view of a natural looking person, the chin is located slightly back from the horizontal position of the lower lips. In some people, the chin recedes further than normal. In this case, the face looks unnatural.
The relationship between facial features, especially between the chin and nose, is undeniable. A receding chin makes a person’s nose seem bigger than it really is. Likewise, a person with a big nose seems to have a receding chin. For this reason, usually chin augmentation is performed at the time of rhinoplasty.
The use of implants for augmenting the chin and bringing it forward is a good method. Implants come in a variety of materials, shapes, sizes, and dimensions. This gives the surgeon great leeway in choosing a suitable implant for patients requiring chin augmentation. Implantation can occur through the mouth or from underneath the chin. The choice of the surgical method depends on the extent of the malformation.
