Optimizing the Chin and Jawline Appearance: Does Surgery or Injection Make Sense?

Oliver Y. Chin, Jonathan M Sykes

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The chin is a crucial landmark and mandates careful consideration for facial appearance. Optimal chin appearance requires evaluation and treatment in three dimensions: anteroposterior, transverse, and vertical planes. The optimization of chin deficiencies requires understanding of bony anatomy as well as the relationship of the adjacent facial structures including the lip, teeth, and nose. The practitioner should be familiar with techniques in injection, placement of alloplastic implants, as well bony genioplasty.
