A beautiful slender feminine chin or a husky wide masculine chin that is in proportion with the rest of your face is one of the possibilities that chin surgery has to offer with the help of a chin implant.
Your profile will be more balanced and your jaw/chin line will be more pronounced.
This will also improve the proportions between your nose and chin. The results are permanent. Nevertheless, the chin implant can be removed if necessary.
Everyone has a unique profile. The proportions between your nose and your chin can be seen in your profile. If your nose protrudes too far or if you have a receding chin, the facial balance is out of proportion. A chin surgery could solve your problem!
Often, all it takes is just a few millimetres to be out of proportion. Moving the chin forward with the help of an implant is a simple and very effective method to create the proper balance. Your nose will then appear to be more in proportion.
The preparations consist mainly of determining which kind of chin implant is most suitable for you. Since there are different kinds of implants, the chin can be made wider (more masculine) or narrower (more feminine) for chin surgery.

We advise you to stop smoking four weeks before the operation. This increases your chance that your wound will heal quickly and without any problems.
