Dr. Abramson discusses why a Chin Augmentation sometimes goes hand in hand with Rhinoplasty in order to get the best results.
“So, when we do a consultation with a patient, facial proportions are exceedingly important, and we review these, particularly with the help of our computer imaging system. Many times what we will determine is that a patient’s chin is somewhat poorly projected and may also affect how the nose is perceived. So, sometimes we actually will recommend augmenting the projection of the chin while doing a Rhinoplasty, and this also, not only increases the improvement in what the perception of the nose surgery is, but also the patients seem to be much happier. We do the chin augmentation procedure through a small incision that’s actually under the chin where many people already have a small scar from childhood falls, and it’s minimally noticeable. I have not had to revise any of these incisions in 20 years of practice.”
The nose and the chin play a big role in the overall balance and proportion of the face. If you are considering Rhinoplasty, a chin augmentation may be necessary to give you the overall look you are trying to achieve from Rhinoplasty. As stated above, computer imaging, which gives you a mock up of what you will look like after the procedure, can help you determine whether to combine these procedures.
Dr. Abramson performs Rhinoplasty and Chin Augmentation procedures in his own surgical suite in Atlanta, GA, a convenient drive for those in Buckhead, Dunwoody, Sandy Springs, Marietta, Roswell, Alpharetta and beyond.
