Asia is Enhancing Looks and Outlooks

Asia performed over 4 million cosmetic surgery procedures in 2011. The continent leads the world in this growing industry, an industry that people are turning to for better self-esteem and youthful looks.

Chin Augmentation

Chin augmentation or mentoplasty is performed to provide balance to the facial profile or to correct a weak chin. Chin augmentation is usually performed with bio-compatible implants. The implant is placed over the lower jaw bone to augment the chin. Depending on the augmented region, it is possible to create a wider or stronger chin, or even lengthen the face.

The implant is affixed in place by fashioning a loose fitting pocket or by fixing it to bone or soft tissue. Some implants are placed by making a small incision under the chin. If the material is rigid, then a small incision is made inside the mouth. A chin augmentation is usually recommended with a nose job.
