Surgery for The Face / Chin and Cheek Implants

Chin augmentation using chin implants

The chin is considered to be one of the main balancing points of the face. The main purpose of having a chin implant also known as a mentoplasty is to restore a sense of balance and symmetry. Sometimes chin implants are recommended along with nose reshaping in order to restore facial balance and harmony.
