Many patients seek help from plastic surgeons for facial imbalance due to a “weak” chin profile or lack of fullness in the cheek region. Plastic surgeons can use facial implants to dramatically improve these areas and esthetically bring symmetry back to a previously asymmetric area. There are many implants available, manufactured from a variety of materials. These implants can also be placed in such a way where they strengthen a previously weak jawline.
The medical term for chin augmentation surgery is mentoplasty, or genioplasty. Although the procedure is generally focused on adding to the size of the chin, the shape can also be reduced by surgically removing bone. It’s also a relatively common procedure to have done in conjunction with a rhinoplasty surgery, as the two procedures can balance the aesthetic features of the face.
Facial aesthetic surgery serves to correct all or some of these facial imbalances. When you meet with Dr. Parson the two of you will look in a mirror and he will ask you “what are the things about your appearance that bother you and you and what things would like to change?” Dr. Parson feels that facial surgery should leave patients with a refreshed look without making them look “plastic”. “I don’t want patients to have anyone think they have had plastic surgery”, says Dr. Parson, “I just want family and friends to compliment them on their new appearance without realizing why they look so much better.”
