Chin enhancement in New York beautifies the lower face by providing more definition or by correcting asymmetries. When needed, chin enhancement is used in combination with a septorhinoplasty (nasal reshaping) procedure. Chin enhancement may be done with either one of two methods: 1) Chin implant, or 2) Osseous genioplasty. A chin implant is placed in a pocket under the chin pad and over the bone. An osseous genioplasty involves moving the entire chin, including the bone.
Chin Enhancement Objectives
- Achieve balance and more attractive lower facial features by increasing projection and tightening of the submental (neck) region.
- Modify the face height vertically, either by shortening or lengthening the lower face.
- Improve breathing and relieve obstructive sleep apnea by advancing the tongue and floor musculature.
How do I know if chin enhancement is right for me?
Which procedure do I need: a chin implant or an osseous geniplasty?
A chin implant is a simple procedure that can be done without anesthesia, but is only used for moving the chin pad forward. 90% of the time this procedure is preferred. An osseous genioplasty is a powerful surgical procedure which can address chin dysmorphology in 6 directions. Because of its versatility, it is one of the most common osteotomies (bone separation) of the face.
How much does chin enhancement cost?
The exact cost of chin enhancement depends on the technique chosen for your augmentation. Additionally, price is determined based on factors like the total procedure time and the type of anesthesia needed.
