Chin Implants

About Chin Implants

Traditionally, a face with a chiseled look, relatively large chin and solid, angular profile has been regarded as the embodiment of masculinity. If you would prefer your chin to be a slightly different size or shape, chin implants are an effective solution, producing features that are better proportioned and more balanced. Chin implants can be combined with other facial procedures such as a face lift or nose reshaping surgery to achieve a better facial balance.
