Chin implant Turkey and chin augmentation Turkey are extremely popular issues among patients. Well-defined facial features contribute to the beauty both in women and men.

A protruding chin improves the facial expression by helping to provide a self-confident, attractive appearance. Even though the nose is in the center of the face and perhaps it is the most noticeable structure, the nose is balanced only with a compatible chin.

For this reason, the role of chin aesthetics is important in the harmonization of all areas on the face. Because a nose that is too large causes the chin to appear smaller than it is, and a small chin makes a normal nose appear larger than it is.

How is chin augmentation surgery performed?

Chin aesthetics is a procedure designed to reshape or enlarge the chin for a well-defined chin expression that is proportional to the entire face. Chin augmentation surgeries are performed in two ways:
• Chin implant placement
• Chin filler (Injection of fat or filler material into the chin).

Chin implant (chin augmentation aesthetics) can be placed inside the mouth through an incision made inside the lower lip. It creates a pocket under the muscle in front of the jawbone and the implant can be placed inside that pocket.

The implant is fixed to the jawbone with a screw not to move and then stitches are used to close the incision. There is no incision scar when the implant is inserted through the mouth. Chin aesthetics takes about 1-2 hours.
