Are you happy with your profile? Do you feel like your face is not balanced?
Dr. Kassir specializes in chin augmentation surgery in NJA receding chin may be improved by chin implants. This improves the profile by creating a better balance between the chin and other facial features. Chin and cheek implants are commonly performed in conjunction with other procedures such as nasal reshaping (rhinoplasty) and face/neck lifts.
Chin Augmentation Procedure Details
A mentoplasty, commonly referred to as a chin augmentation is usually desired by the patient or suggested by Dr. Kassir when there is a small or recessive chin that disrupts facial harmony. A chin augmentation surgery can be performed under local anesthesia or general anesthesia. During a consult, Dr. Kassir will recommend a custom chin implant size that works in harmony with the rest of the facial features. During the procedure, Dr. Kassir makes a small incision below the chin and inserts the implant. When done by an experienced plastic surgeon, the patient should not feel the implant. After this procedure, the patient may be allowed to go home and they can resume normal activities in public within a few days. We have found that most of our patients have a mentoplasty in combination with other facial procedures, such as rhinoplasty, to create maximum facial balance without having to go under anesthesia more than once. Dr. Kassir will use the most appropriate implant and technique to fit the contour and projection necessary to achieve your desired look.
