Chin Correction

BACK TO ALL POST-TREATMENTS

Rebalance the features in your face and enhance the contours of your jawline with our chin implant. Our expert surgeon will correct any imbalances in the face and jawline resulting from a chin that is weak or that has a recessed contour. The procedure is carried out through a small incision, placing a small implant in the chin on top of the bone to give the appearance of a naturally contoured jawline.

Your practitioner will discuss any medication you are currently taking and advise you on any adjustments if necessary prior to surgery Your skincare regime will be discussed and adjusted in the run up to your procedure.


Before Surgery
