What is a chin augmentation
The chin plays a prominent role in our facial symmetry. Many people feel there is nose too big when in fact their chin is too small creating an imbalance. A weak chin often results in an unattractive or unrefined appearance while a more sculpted, balanced chin is thought to be more attractive.
Chin augmentation with Dr Drielsma address these concerns and helps you achieve a naturally balanced face.
There are several options for chin augmentation.
Chin implants offer one of the quickest ways to improve the appearance of your chin. Dr Drielsma makes a tiny incision under the chin so that the scar is well hidden. The implant is then inserted through the incision and fixed to the bone so it won’t move. Chin implants are made from pliable silicone gel which looks and feels very natural. Chin implants are ideal for people seeking a gentle augmentation or less dramatic result.
Sliding genioplasty offers a more dramatic chin augmentation. Dr Drielsma makes an incision in the mouth and cuts the bone. The chin point is then moved forward and fixed with screws. This technique also allows lengthening in the height of the chin.
Chin augmentation can be performed on its own but is commonly performed in conjunction with rhinoplasty surgery or liposuction to the chin to further enhance your facial profile.
At your consultation, Dr Drielsma will discuss your concerns and goals and determine which approach is best for you to help you achieve your goals.
