Chin Augmentation – Facial Symmetry – Houston
There are many subtle features of the face that can affect its harmony and balance. The nose, chin and cheeks play a big part in our appearance as even the slightest deformity or change can throw off your appearance. With the chin, there are many people who desire a more-prominent chin to enhance their face’s balance in relation to the neck and cheeks. Chin augmentation is an effective procedure for making such enhancements.
Chin augmentation often employs the use of prostheses made of bio-compatible materials or sometimes grafted material from donors. For enhancing the projection of the chin, a process called the sliding genioplasty is done to add horseshoe-shaped enhancement to the bottom of the chin. The enhancement is attached with titanium screws or wires. Consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Andrew Lyos to determine if chin augmentation is right for you.
