Chin Augmentation 

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Restoration | El Paso Medical SpaMany people suffer from a weak or recessive chin. This makes their facial features appear disproportionate. The lower jaw looks set back as compared to the upper jaw. Retruded chin or recessive chin can make your jawline appear less defined. It can also make your neck appear fleshier.

These conditions can be corrected with a customized chin enhancement cosmetic surgery. Envy Aesthetic Center, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Marco Gonzalez, provides chin augmentation surgery to patients in El Paso, TX, and surrounding locations.

Surgical Options to Correct Retruded Chin

There are several plastic surgery options that can effectively reverse your receding chin. You can enjoy improved facial balance, especially in the lower portion of your face with these procedures. Chin augmentation plastic surgery or chin implants is one of the most popular treatment options. Kybella injections and liposuction can also help reduce fat in your chin area to create a stronger and more horizontal looking jawline.

However, chin implants remain the most common procedure for correcting lower mandible or recessive chin. Chin implant is usually inserted after making an incision inside the mouth. This minimizes external scarring.

In extreme cases, your surgeon may recommend sliding chin genioplasty to correct a weak jawline and chin. Sliding genioplasty is recommended for patients that have severe retrogenia. This surgery is only performed in rare situations since it highly invasive and involves longer recovery.

You should discuss your aesthetic goals and expectations with an experienced plastic surgeon. They will customize a procedure based on your anatomical needs and aesthetic expectations.

Chin Implant Surgery Is Customized

Your plastic surgeon will take multiple imaging and scans for the purpose of determining your present anatomical structure. They will compare these with your aesthetic needs to create a customized plastic surgery plan. The surgeon will either order pre-made prosthesis or custom-made chin implants based on this surgical plan.

Chin implants are made from biocompatible silicone or other synthetic material. Your surgeon will make sure the implant helps in achieving a shapelier and stronger looking jawline. There are several alternatives available to chin implant cosmetic surgery. Sometimes, these other procedures may be used in conjunction for more dramatic results.

For instance, your surgeon may recommend a chin liposuction and neck lift to produce desired results. In some cases, your surgeon may consider lengthening the jawline by using special surgical techniques.

Advantages of Chin Augmentation Surgery

Mouth exercises are not enough to correct a weak jawline or chin. This is because the chin has soft tissue and bone structures which are not always malleable. You cannot get your desired results through natural methods alone. Chin implant surgery can help you achieve the following:

  • Marked improvement in your facial appearance, from the front and side
  • Strong jawline
  • Improved smile appearance
  • Vertical balance to the face
  • Harmony between your lower and upper jaws
  • Improved facial balance

These are just a few advantages. You should discuss the type of unique benefits you can achieve from getting a chin implant inserted with your plastic surgeon. Dr. Marco Gonzalez receives patients from El Paso, TX, and nearby areas for chin augmentation surgery.
