Your Healthcare Holiday Dollars go Farther in Thailand

Medical costs in the West are skyrocketing and patients are flocking to Asia to save, particularly to Thailand where outlays for treatment are generally five to ten times less than what they’d be in the US and Europe.

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.
