A well-defined chin helps give balance to the face and plays a major part of one's profile that is often overlooked. Surgeons who specialize in rhinoplasty (surgery of the nose) are often the first to suggest enhancing the chin as part of nasal surgery to achieve facial balance and harmony. Actually, increasing projection of a receding chin can make a prominent nose look smaller without nasal surgery. Fortunately, this is a relatively straightforward procedure that can make a major difference. A pleasing, balanced profile can be achieved by inserting an implant to build up a receding chin. Conversely, a prominent chin can be reduced by shaving or reshaping of the bone. Sub-mental liposuction is often used in combination with chin surgery to further redefine the chin or neckline. If there is a contributing problem of dental malocclusions or birth defects in the jaw structure, oral surgery of the jaw may be required to improve the form and function of the lower face to enhance the appearance.
