Adult men and women who are unhappy with the definition of their jaw and chin area may wonder what plastic surgery solutions are available to help. Dr. Dimitrios Motakis of Toronto, ON assists patients with choosing the best facial surgery for their unique needs. For many, a chin augmentation can help them define their jaw line, reduce a double chin, and provide a more youthful appearance overall.
What occurs during a chin augmentation?
Chin augmentation is primarily achieved with the use of a chin implant. Implants are placed in the chin area and aligned properly for better balance and symmetry. The implant may be placed with either an external incision underneath the chin to reduce appearance, or with an internal incision in the mouth to eliminate scarring altogether. The placement of the implant is planned prior to the procedure so patients fully understand what to expect from treatment. Patients who have the implant placed from inside the mouth will need to take great care to ensure the area does not become infected. Following the post-operative care instructions provided by Dr. Dimitrios Motakis greatly reduces the risk of this and other complications from the surgery.

It can provide a youthful appearance and a more defined jawline that can reduce the appearance of sagging jowls and a double chin. Many patients find this to be an effective solution to several issues that may bother them.
