Chin surgery, also known as mentoplasty, is a surgical procedure to reshape the chin by enhancement with an implant.
Enhancing your chin can lend your face a sharper, more defined appearance that is subtle yet appealing at the same time. There are a few ways to enhance your chin – with chin implants or chin fillers. One could try with injectible fillers first. The results will last from 6 months to a year depending on the type and amount of filler used. Use of solid implants is a more permanent way of augmenting the chin. The usual implant used is silicone.
