This surgery serves to adjust the size of the chin to the rest of the face. It is often associated with rhinoplasty as they are the master regions of the facial profile.
It can be performed by placing a silicone or porous polyethylene implant through an incision in the lower gum.
An alternative for those who do not wish to undergo surgery is the injectable hyaluronic acid implant, performed in the office under local anesthesia. It has a more discreet effect and lasts between 12 and 18 months.
