Chin, the defining part of human facial anatomy, also known as “mental protuberance”. It is the forward pointed part of the mental region just below the lower lip. The uniqueness and paramountcy of chin can be weighed with the customary use of the proverb “chin up”, which is a way of emboldening someone to walk past a situation.
The chin plays a significant function in the development of your facial structure and its beauty. With the nose, a person’s facial equilibrium can be determined, especially through its overall look and symmetry to the face in profile. It’s self-explanatory, as to why both rhinoplasty and genioplasty procedures gained grounds over a decennium. The chin defines the character of the face and, perhaps, the person; a long chin has been associated with vigour and puissance, whereas a short chin portrays impuissance.
WHAT CAUSES SHORT CHIN?
The jaw is an involute structure of bone and soft tissues. What we traditionally call the jaw is a structure termed the “mandible” or lower jaw. The mandible determines the genuine position of your chin while circumventing tissues can affect its appearance.
As per the mundane anatomy of a skeleton, the upper and lower jaws have a relatively set proportion to each other. When the chin is set back exorbitantly compared to the upper jaw, this is called retrogenia, or a receding chin. Retrogenia is normally something that is controlled by hereditary qualities.
Through the Chin Augmentation procedure, we can treat or improve the bone silhouette of the chin area. Satisfactory completion of this procedure involves the placement of a well-fitted “implants” well below the skin and directly on the bone of the chin area. This procedure augments an under-projected chin. Genioplasty is another procedure where the chin bone is surgically advanced and fixed in the desired position.
At Orange Tree, we have advanced software simulations for chin reshaping or chin augmentation. The simulation procedure can help you in making the right decision in regards to the actual Chin Augmentation procedure. By chin augmentation with implants or by genioplasty, we have successfully been able to restore the facial symmetry of our patients. Not only has it enhanced the facial appearance of individuals but withal boosted their self-confidence.
