This surgical procedure consists of increasing the volume of the chin region, when there is a deficiency in the shape and volume of the chin. This deficiency is usually present from birth, and confers a sad aspect to the face. With certain frequency, this surgery is performed simultaneously with rhinoplasty (when the latter is indicated).

It is possible to augment and recreate the shape of the chin by placing a soft silicone gel implant through a cut or incision inside the mouth, in front of the frenulum of the lower lip.

The size of the soft silicone gel implant is proportional to the degree of chin deficiency. Chin augmentation surgery can be performed at any age, starting at 18 years of age.
