NJ Chin Augmentation | New Jersey Genioplasty
Two techniques are available for the purpose of improving the harmony of the lower 1/3 of the face (predominantly composed of the chin) with the nose and the rest of the face.
Chin implants can enlarge the chin to help provide a harmonious balance to the facial features, improving the facial profile and augmenting a weak chin. By placing a biocompatible implant such as Silicone or Porex (Medpor) in the lower jaw, patients can create a stronger and more defined chin and even lengthen the entire face. While many patients are offered dermal fillers as a non-surgical substitute to increase the size of their chin by practitioners who are not trained in surgery, these results only last for a few months and require frequent touch ups. In comparison, chin implants offer patients results that can be customized to achieve your unique desired look.
This procedure for New Jersey chin augmentation is commonly recommended in conjunction with rhinoplasty in order to achieve a more satisfying facial proportion, since the size of the chin may be affected by the new size and shape of the nose. It may also be combined with a lip augmentation for maximum aesthetic results. Many patients do not come to a plastic surgeon requesting a chin implant, but are usually pleased with the outcome of this procedure after the aesthetic need for one is brought to their attention.
An alternative to placement of a NJ chin implant is called chin advancement or osseous genioplasty. This technique involves advancement of the bone itself and securing the bone in its new and advanced position using a microplate and several titanium screws.
The difference between prosthetic genioplasty and osseous genioplasty will be discussed with you in detail by Dr. Rosenberg during your consultation to allow a full understanding of the comparative advantages of each of these options.
