The chin is an often overlooked area when analyzing facial features. In men, a strong chin can often contribute to a confident, masculine look. In women, a strong chin can add balance to a “top-heavy” face to harmonize features. A chin implant can create a more balanced profile by augmenting a weak, receding chin; reducing a deep fold under the lower lip; or widening a small chin.
One aspect of facial aging is the loss of bone of the jaw bone (mandible), which predictably leads to bony loss just lateral to the chin, giving more prominence to the jowls. Augmenting this pre-jowl groove can improve the contour of the jawline, straightening and elongating the jaw, with patients very pleased with the result.
While there is no one size or shape that fits every patient’s needs, a wide variety of implant shapes and materials are available to permit reshaping the chin to the optimal contours. Chin surgery can be combined with facelift and necklift procedures, or be done as an in-office procedure. For a consultation, please contact Nuance Facial Plastics via email or call us.

Get in Touch
The Nuance Facial Plastics Blog is here to give you the most honest, up to date information from us to you, in our “sponsored by nobody” style. Our discussions will include topics that interest our readers, with a focus on facial plastic surgery. We will use this space to answer frequently asked questions and also discuss current trends, new products, and emergent technologies. Information is widely available on the internet, but good information that is not marketing material in disguise is hard to find, and often times constitutes a majority of what patients read as their “research”. The Nuance Facial Plastics Blog differs, as we are an independent practice that has no exclusive deals with any vendors, companies, or other entities that would influence the quality and honesty of the information we provide you.
Our First Series
One of the most common discussions that we have with patients are about the differences between products that we offer, as there is some overlap. The single most common question we get asked is, “what is the difference between Botox and Dysport?”. Our first three-part series will explore the differences between the three neuromodulators currently available in the USA, Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin. Several topics, such as differences in the strength, longevity, or “spread” between the products will be discussed. Despite being broken into a three-part series, there is quite a lot of information, as the information from these posts are rooted in science, and the claims are supported by multiple articles published in high quality, peer-reviewed medical literature.
