What can a chin augmentation accomplish?
When performed correctly by a leading New York plastic surgeon like Dr. Scarpidis, a chin augmentation can accomplish a number of important aesthetic benefits, including:
- Increasing the prominence and projection of a recessed chin.
- Minimizing the size of an overly prominent chin.
- Improving the proportions of your face.
- Restoring definition to the jawline.
- Correcting a pointed or square chin.
- Making a prominent nose look smaller, by bringing balance to the face.
- Sculpting a stronger and more masculine jawline for men.
- Reducing a large chin that overpowers a woman’s feminine features.
The chin augmentation procedure.
Dr. Scarpidis is known for using a number of surgical and non-surgical approaches to perform chin augmentations. As creating a beautiful and balanced face is a true art form, he approaches each of his patients with fresh eyes to determine which technique or blend of procedures will best accomplish their goals.
For example, if you suffer from a weak chin and want to significantly increase the size of your jawline, he’s likely to permanently enhance the area with implants. In this case, Dr. Scarpidis will begin your treatment by carefully analyzing your facial anatomy and other features to select the implant size and shape that will allow him to sculpt the precise look you desire. He will then administer general anesthesia to ensure your comfort and safety, before making a tiny and well-hidden incision in the chin. From there, he will place the implant over the bone and close the incisions to ensure the final outcome is as discreet as possible.
On the other hand, if you require smaller enhancements to your chin, Dr. Scarpidis may recommend dermal fillers to temporarily and very precisely increase the size and projection of your chin. This treatment option only requires a local anesthetic, and can be performed in the comfort of Dr. Scarpidis’ private New York office.
If you suffer from a chin that is too large, Dr. Scarpidis can perform a chin reduction to surgically reduce its size and prominence. To begin, he will spend a substantial amount of time analyzing your facial anatomy to determine the precise amount of bone to remove to ensure a balanced and attractive profile. From there, he will administer general anesthesia to ensure your safety, before making a tiny and well-hidden incision in the chin. He will then reshape and remove the excess bone to achieve an proportioned contour that brings a greater level of harmony to your face.
