Facial Implants in San Francisco

Chin Augmentation

An area that can cause significant imbalance to the overall appearance of the face is the chin. A small or short chin can cause the neck to look less defined and create an illusion of having a larger nose.

Chin augmentation is often accomplished using an implant. Dr. Kim places the chin implant through a small incision below the chin. A soft biocompatible chin implant is placed and secured in front of the lower jaw.

Video: Dr. Kim Discusses Facial Implants

San Francisco facial plastic surgeon, Dr. David Kim, discusses facial implants and chin augmentation at his renowned cosmetic surgery practice.

In contrast to chin augmentation, a prominent or long chin can make the upper face look sunken and the nose look small. Even small changes in the size of the chin can result in a very noticeable improvement in the overall balance of the face.

Patients seeking an overall facial makeover may need more dramatic results from plastic surgery procedures such as a face lift, forehead lift or rhinoplasty.
