What is Chin Augmentation?

Chin augmentation is meant to enhance the shape of the chin. This procedure can help with improving the projection of a receding chin or reduce an over prominent chin to make the v-line appear shapelier. In both cases, it is used to give a nice-looking proportion to the lower half of the face.

 

Some individuals also need improvements of certain chin abnormalities. It can be done by different methods, including genioplasty and chin implant which are both available in Dream Singapore.

Who Needs Chin Augmentation?

Chin augmentation is appropriate for individuals with a receding or protruding chin, under the following conditions:

 

Receding chin
  • Individuals with a lack of chin who look round-faced or has a shorter face
  • Anyone who wants to have a more noticeable jawline and chin
  • When a receding chin make the upper lips or mouth look exaggeratedly prominent
 
Protruding chin
  • Where the chin protrudes outwards 
  • Where the chin is proportionately too long as compared to the rest of the face
  • Anyone with a squarish-looking chin
  • Those with an uneven or asymmetry chin

Types of Chin Augmentation

At Dream Singapore, chin augmentation can be performed through 3 methods.

1. Chin Implant

For a receding chin

Chin implant uses soft silicon materials to improve projection and support. After surgery, chin implant looks natural, and since it is made with a soft silicone, it is not hard on the bones and recovery time is fast, with fewer adverse side effects.

2. Chin Implant

For a receding /protruding chin

Genioplasty is an alternative surgical procedure where we can push back a protruded chin or bring forward a receding chin by repositioning the bones. This procedure does not require any implants, and it is ideal for individuals who do not agree on using artificial materials and implants in the body.

3. Micrognathia Correction

For a receding chin

In micrognathia, individuals experience malocclusion where the lower jaw and the chin are both receded and smaller than normal, and it can result in poor jaw line definition and contour between the chin and neck. This facial contour can enhanced by transplanting bone that is previously taken out during surgery. As a result, the lower jaw increases in length and size, and improves its proportion to the rest of the face.
