How does chin augmentation work?

Chin augmentation is a surgical procedure to reshape the chin to better balance the features of the face. Dr. Banthia can enhance the chin can by the inserting an implant or reduce it with surgery that reshapes the chin bone. Alternatively, he uses fillers and fat grafting techniques for those who are looking for alternative options.  The procedure is typically performed on an outpatient basis. Chin augmentation may be recommended in conjunction with rhinoplasty (nose surgery) as the balancing of the two features is fundamental to the face’s appearance.
