A woman in her late 40’s complained of her nose being “too large”. Her nose has excellent aesthetics however, and after analysis it became clear that her chin is too small (“hypogenia”). She is shown before and again 6 weeks after chin augmentation with a solid silicone implant placed through an incision under her chin. Although no surgery was performed on her nose, it appears proportionally smaller and in better balance with her face in the after photograph.
A woman is shown before and again 7 months after facelift combined with a chin implant. When a patient with a “weak chin” is requesting a facelift or a rhinoplasty, a chin implant is typically recommended at the same time to improve the subsequent facial balance and results.
A woman in her early 70’s who was unhappy with the aged appearance of her face is shown before and again, 1 year following a facelift with chin implant and dermabrasion to her upper lip. When the chin is “weak” and falls behind an imaginary line that is dropped down from the front of the upper and lower lips, a chin implant can improve the results, as seen here.
