Many people have heard of breast implants, but few people know the power of a chin implant. A weak chin undermines what might otherwise be a harmonious face. Some patients need liposuction of the neck combined with the implant to produce an elegantly defined profile, and I use tiny cannulae to remove fat (the insertion points are hidden behind the ears). Chin implants are versatile: a carefully chosen implant can make men look more masculine and women more feminine. When I perform rhinoplasties, often the patient has too much nose and too little chin; however, when these two elements are brought into proportion, the balance is restored and with it, attractiveness. I always insert my implants through an incision made on the inside of the mouth so that no scar is visible. As with any surgery, a natural-looking outcome is always desirable, and it is essential to choose the proper size and shape to ensure that the results are optimum.
