When you think of facial rejuvenation, you might first consider the aging qualities that are apparent on your skin. Fine lines and deeper wrinkles are some of the first concerns that patients want to address with cosmetic treatment.
Your facial aesthetic has a lot to do with specific features, such as your nose, cheeks and chin, along with the effects of natural aging. When your facial features look symmetrical, your appearance is considered standard or even beautiful, but when one or more features seems too large or small, then your face may look unbalanced.
Correcting the symmetry of your face can involve several procedures, including chin surgery. Although you may not think that your chin enhances the shape and profile of your face, it contributes notably to your overall appearance.
What Is Chin Surgery?
Chin surgery consists of three techniques that work to improve the aesthetics of the chin. You may receive an augmentation to elongate or widen the chin, which usually involves an implant, or you may require a chin reduction to help your chin look streamlined with the rest of your face. Chin surgery is also a possibility if you are experiencing health issues related to your teeth and jaws.

Due to heredity, the chin can either appear too large or small compared to the rest of the face. To improve your facial balance, Dr. Williams may recommend chin surgery as a treatment option.
