Chin augmentation is the use of synthetics, biologicals or even chin/jaw bone advancement (called Genioplasty; ) to augment, or make the mentum (the lower portion of the face lying below the lower lip and including the prominence of the lower jaw — called also chin) bone structure of the face more prominent. It can give balance to an otherwise less defined face or further augment an already existent chin structure.
It also may be that the face needs Mandibular (jaw) augmentation or Malar (cheek) augmentation to balance out the features in addition to chin augmentation. It is also very common to have chin augmentation in conjunction with rhinoplasty. We can help determine your needs by examining your facial structure and photographs.
