Surgical Chin Augmentation

This patient in her early 20s has a small chin (microgenia) although her teeth do align properly.  The ideal position for the female chin is a few millimeters behind the bottom lip.  As you can see in her before photo the chin started at the corner of her mouth, which is too far back.  She underwent a procedure under local anesthetic where an implant was placed through a small incision below her chin.  As you can see in the after photo her chin is in much better harmony with the rest of her face and its position is at the ideal location for a female.  She was ecstatic with her result as she had been very self conscious about her chin.
