When we talk of ‘normal’ facial appearance, we imply that there is a ‘normal’ harmony to the features of the face- particularly the nose, the chin and the check-bones. If one of these features is out of proportion with the others, a face can look out of balance.
With chins which are recessive or weak in projection, this can exaggerate the perceived size of one’s nose or result in a neck that blends into the jaw with little jawline definition. A chin implant can help create definition and it is not uncommon to also combine implant surgery with liposuction to the neck. Some patients undergoing rhinoplasty surgery will also help achieve greater balance with enhanced chin projection.
