When analyzing the beauty of a face, most patients recognize the importance of a well-defined chin to overall facial harmony. A chin with good proportions not only balances the face, but also improves the profile. By simply enlarging the chin when it is too weak, it is possible to improve the patient’s overall facial appearance a great deal. In addition to performing the procedure by itself, Dr. Burke Robinson occasionally recommends chin augmentation for his rhinoplasty patients in order to improve facial proportions.
Chin augmentation Atlanta is a straightforward procedure that involves the placement of an implant through a tiny incision (about one-half inch) made just under the chin. Various sizes and shapes of chin implants are available that are designed to look and feel like natural tissue. Once the implant has been placed by Dr. Robinson, fine absorbable sutures are used to close the incision, allowing the chin to heal. After approximately five to seven days, most patients are able to resume normal activity.
Dr. Robinson has made the study of facial proportions and facial beauty his life’s work and can accurately assess whether or not chin augmentation will be beneficial to your overall look. With the assistance of digital imaging, Dr. Robinson works with his patients to demonstrate the potential change in which chin implants can result; patients are frequently surprised and delighted with the ability to see what they may look like with the implants. We encourage patients interested in chin augmentation to contact the Atlanta-area offices of Robinson Facial Plastic Surgery to schedule a preliminary consultation with the doctor.
