  • Dear Jack Green,

    Augmentation of a small under projected
    chin can be performed using soft tissue fillers such as Voluma or Restylane and
    can achieve an 8-12 month result and give patients a sense of what a more
    projected chin would look like.  The
    advantages of this procedure are that it is reversible and safe.  Fat transplantation to the chin can provide a
    long-term soft tissue enhancement and the advantages are that it is a natural
    component and unlikely to react with your body.

    The bone itself can be broken and
    shifted and moved forward in a permanent chin augmentation.  The advantages are it is autogenous, your own
    bony tissue and will not result in wear or charge of the underlying bone as can
    occur with the final option which is an artificial chin implant.  Artificial chin implants usually are made out
    of silastic or Mentor can be inserted through the mouth minimizing the scar and
    give a nice improvement of the projection of the chin.

    I’ve been performing cosmetic plastic
    surgery for over 20 years and offer a variety of chin augmentation solutions.

    Best of luck.
