Can a Chin Augmentation Help Balance My Facial Features?

By: Dr. Husam Elias


Do you feel that your chin is too small for your face? A receding or tiny chin can make your face appear weak and older than your years. Natural aging can also make the chin sag as the body’s collagen production slows. If you have experienced recent weight loss, your chin can develop a jowl-like appearance. However, chin augmentation might be the solution to your problem. A prominent and defined chin can provide you with a look of strength and beauty. It can create balance in your face and, in many cases, offset a prominent nose.

Dr. Husam Elias is an experienced cosmetic and oral/maxillofacial surgeon at Southern California Center for Surgical Arts near Los Angeles, CA. If you have a weak or sagging chin, you might be an ideal candidate for chin augmentation to balance your face. Dr. Elias will meet with you for a consultation to examine your face and listen to your goals. He will also answer any questions you might have about chin augmentation procedures and other ways to tighten your chin, such as FaceTite. FaceTite is a nonsurgical procedure that helps firm your jawline and chin while encouraging the body to produce collagen to help give you a more lifted, younger appearance.

All about a chin augmentation

Chin augmentation can include a chin implant that enlarges the chin and lifts it to create facial symmetry. Some people opt to also have cheek implants carried out at the same time as a chin implant for even more facial enhancement. Others opt to have rhinoplasty carried out if their nose is too large or they don't like the shape. Many will pair a chin augmentation with a facelift or dermal fillers for a younger appearance. If you do not want to undergo a surgical procedure to enhance your skin, you can opt to undergo nonsurgical FaceTite to firm a sagging chin and create volume through natural collagen production.

Are you a suitable candidate for chin augmentation?

If your chin appears smaller than the rest of your facial features, chin augmentation might be an excellent choice. It can make your nose appear smaller, showcase your neckline, and create facial balance. If your face is round, chin augmentation can contour. Individuals suffering from a fleshy neck can also benefit from enhancing the chin and jawline.

Do you have a normal bite, but your jaw is receding or weak? If so, then a chin augmentation can give you an improved profile and facial balance.

What is the right chin size?

Everyone is different, but a good rule of thumb for facial symmetry is that if an imaginary line is drawn from your lower lip downward, your chin should fit in proportion to the imaginary line. If the chin recedes too far back, you might benefit from chin augmentation.
