Facial balance is a vital element to achieving an attractive and visually pleasing facial profile. Balance means that the different parts of the face complement each other in such a way that good features are enhanced and flaws are minimized. The chin is one crucial feature that can make or break facial balance. A well-defined chin connotes aesthetic balance and stronger facial profile both for men and women. Meanwhile, a weak chin can make the neck appear loose or make the nose appear bigger. For others, it’s more than just a matter of physical appeal. Microgenia, a medical condition that refers to an unusually small or deformed chin, can adversely affect self-confidence and lead to stress and anxiety.
Alonzo Cosmetic Surgery offers a safe and effective solution to small and underprojected chins through Chin Augmentation in the Philippines.
Chin Augmentation or Mentoplasty is a surgical procedure that remedies underprojected chins and restores proportion to the facial profile. With the use of a durable implant (made of silicon material), this technique works on the underlying structure of the face to enlarge and improve the contour of any undersized, weak or receding chin, as well as correct big chin. Depending on the recommendation of doctors and willingness of patients, Chin Augmentation Surgery is sometimes done in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures.

Chin augmentation surgery usually takes around 1 to 1 ½ hours to finish but in cases where it is done in conjunction with other procedures, the surgery takes longer.
