Is Chin Surgery Right for You?
The chin is an interesting part of the face. Although, it certainly doesn’t get quite the same attention as the eyes, lips, or even the nose, it’s a key component to one’s overall facial structure. Harmonious balance of facial features has much to do with the size and shape of the chin. The good news is that if you are unhappy with the look of your chin, it can be corrected safely and effectively. And, the results can be truly amazing!
Chin surgery is a common procedure to reshape the chin. Depending on the circumstances, a chin can be either enhanced with an implant and/or dermal fillers or minimized with a reduction surgery of the bone. Also known, as mentoplasty (chin reduction) or genioplasty (chin augmentation), chin surgery can be performed as a single surgery or combined with other procedures, such as rhinoplasty or a neck lift, to help balance facial features.
Chin surgery is performed equally on men and women, and the best surgeons are those who are experts at determining the right size and shape of a chin for a face. For example, a chin that strongly projects may look fantastic with the masculine features of a male face. However, a woman with delicate bone structure and a thin nose would require an equally proportioned chin for it to look aesthetically pleasing and natural. A strong focus on the chin/nose relationship is essential!
Of course, we’ve all seen our fair share of celebrities with chin implants over the years. Marilyn Monroe was rumored to have had a chin augmentation at the start of her career. More recently, stars suspected of having had chin surgery including Arnold Schwarzenegger, Madonna, Victoria Beckham, and Paris Hilton to name just a few.
