NY area plastic surgeon offers chin augmentation

Patients seeking better proportions to their face and their facial profile may be bothered by a poorly defined jaw line and chin. When men and women in the NY area are seeking a way to better contour the bottom portion of their face, they may be introduced to a procedure known as chin augmentation.

Chin augmentation is a method of reconstructing the chin area for either a more prominent chin or a less prominent one. Patients who want a less prominent chin may benefit from a procedure in which the jawbone is filed down for more of a sloping look and less protrusion. However, patients who want to build up the chin area may benefit from the placement of chin implants.

Chin implants are like many other facial implants used in today’s plastic surgeries. The implant can be used to improve a weak or small chin or help provide better harmony to the elements of the face. Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD of NY uses implants to provide better balance to patients’ appearance.

Chin implants are best for patients who have a sloping chin that blends into their neck and can result in the appearance of no chin or too small of a chin. In many cases, these patients may also complain of having a “double chin” because of excess fat on the neck area. In some situations, Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD may suggest that patients have liposuction done on the neck area to improve the results of the chin implant and make it more distinct. This can greatly enhance patients’ facial profile as well as confidence.

People in and around the area of New York City are welcome to contact 201 947 3636 Dr. Edmund Kwan, M.D. to learn about chin augmentation and the many other rejuvenation procedures available to patients who are new or existing to his practice. Patients are able to book a consultation visit with Dr. Edmund Kwan during which x-rays may be taken and a physical examination is completed to check patients and determine which treatment options may be best for helping them in obtaining their most desirable facial contours.
