Pensacola Male Chin Implants
Many men lack a strong, masculine chin. Chin augmentation surgery, also referred to as genioplasty, is a surgical procedure done to enlarge a chin that is too small or too short. In doing so, the facial features are brought into better proportion and the jawline is made stronger and more defined. The end result is a more attractive appearance. The chin may be augmented by using implants or advancing the bone itself.
Reasons for Considering Male Chin Augmentation and Implant Surgery in Pensacola

Male Chin Augmentation Procedure by your Pensacola Plastic Surgeon
The procedure is typically done under anesthesia. You will be able to go home the same day as surgery. A small incision is made below the chin in a crease that is already there or inside the mouth. When an implant is used to augment the chin, a space is developed to place a solid silicone device. Dr. Shaddix will carefully select the implant that will give you the result you desire. When your own bone is to be used, the bone is advanced to the desired position and secured. The incisions are closed with suture that dissolves and does not need to be removed.
