This procedure reshapes the chin with an implant placed through a small incision
inside the mouth (this surgery leaves no external scars!). A chin implant can be done on its own, or is sometimes recommended to rhinoplasty patients tohelp achievebalanced facial proportion. In both men and women, a chin implant (photos) can correct a weak chin, improve jowls, balance out a face and
improve mouth posture. In men, a chin implant can give a more masculine jaw line. In women, a more elegant neck
and jawis usually the goal. Different sizes of chin implants are used to achieve just the right adjustment on each patient.
