The chin is a prominent feature on the face, for both men and women. Concerns about the size and shape of the chin are common, in terms of a chin which protrudes too much, isn’t prominent enough or which has dimples or creases which can affect the cosmetic appearance of the chin, particularly if a smooth look is favoured. Surgical and non-surgical treatment options can be used to augment the chin, correct problems and relax overactive muscles which are responsible for the so-called scrotal chin which is dimpled like a golf ball.
Dermal fillers are made of various kinds of natural, man-made or synthetic materials that have been developed for injection into the skin and lips; including hyaluronic acid.
Facial implants for areas such as the cheek or chin are used to correct defects, which have existed since birth, or by cosmetic surgeons for malarplasty (reshaping of the cheeks and jaw line)
Chin Surgery or Genioplasty refers to cosmetic surgery operations that aim to improve the appearance of a person`s chin.
