Westchester Chin Surgery by Dr. Kim

Chin Augmentation

A chin augmentation using surgical implants has become one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures carried out today. This procedure involves surgical implants to correct a weak chin or provide better balance and enhance the overall appearance of the face.

Chin augmentation can create a more harmonious profile, refining facial definition and contour. In some cases, patients require a chin reduction rather than an implant, to correct an oversized or protruding chin.

Chin surgery (mentoplasty) may also be performed with other facial procedures such as rhinoplasty (nose reshaping).

Popular Reasons Why Patients Choose Chin Augmentation

  • Enhance a receded or "weak" chin.
  • Create a stronger jawline.
  • Create a more balanced facial profile.

Chin augmentations as well as all other cosmetic surgery procedures are carried out in Bellava's Joint Commission-accredited on-site surgical suite, located in Bedford Hills, NY (near Bedford, Katonah, Armonk, Ridgifield CT, etc.).

A chin augmentation is a highly individualized procedure. Dr. Kim will gladly sit down with you to discuss if you are a good candidate for chin augmentation surgery.
