When it comes to facial aesthetics, a plastic surgeon has plenty of options to consider for making people look their very best. The face is interesting in that a minor change to one facial feature can lead to major changes in the overall look of the face. In other words, subtle can become dramatic in facial plastic surgery.
One particularly effective surgery to consider is chin implant surgery. Right now we’d like to look at the ideal candidates for chin implants, which will help you understand just how dramatic the results can really be.
About Chin Implants
Chin implants are facial implants that are placed in order to enhance, improve, and overall alter the shape of the chin. They are among the most popular facial implants available, the others being for the lips and the cheekbones.
The Right Shape Is Fully Customized
The chin implants are custom fabricated to the needs of the patient, which means that no chin implants are simply placed as they are. Your surgeon will consider and discuss various shape options with you during the consultation process.
General Candidacy for Chin Implant Surgery
In terms of basic candidacy for chin surgery, it’s important that patients be in generally good health and that they do not suffer from any sorts of medical conditions that would make surgery of any kind a health risk. It’s also important that patients have realistic expectations about chin implant surgery and know both the benefits and risks that the surgery poses.
Ideal for People with Weak Chins
Often the most ideal candidates for chin implants are people who have chins that are weak. By that we simply mean people who have chins that are not very prominent. A weak chin can make a major difference in overall perception of your face.
Ideal for Issues with Overall Chin Shape
Other ideal candidates for chin implants are people who are dealing with other kinds of aesthetic issues with their chin shape and appearance. This includes issues with asymmetry, issues with chin contour, the desire for a dimple in the chin area, and so on. Since chin implants are customizable, the needs of the patient can be accommodated with relative ease.
A Chin Implant as an Alternative to Rhinoplasty
What surprises many people is that chin implants can actually be placed as an alternative to rhinoplasty (nose job) in some patients. When a person has a weak chin and a large nose, the nose tends to dominate the face. But as we mentioned above, a subtle change can prove dramatic. By getting a chin implant, facial symmetry and appearance is altered and prominence is drawn away from the nose with much better balance as a result.
