5 Facts About Chin Augmentation

5 Facts About Chin Augmentation

The right chin anchors your face and sculpts your profile. Fortunately, if you weren’t born with this type of chin, you have a way to change it. With chin augmentation, your plastic surgeon can give you the chin your face needs to look its best. 

Dr. Norman J. Pastorek specializes in these procedures. Not only has he provided countless patients with chin augmentations, but he’s also had a chin implant of his own for more than three decades. All told, if you want to explore chin augmentation, there’s no better place than our offices on Manhattan’s Upper East Side in New York City and in Madison, Connecticut.

To help you get started, we outlined five things you should know about this chin procedure. 

1. It provides lasting results

When you choose a chin augmentation, you choose a way to permanently alter your appearance. When applied by an expert plastic surgeon, these chin implants last your lifetime — and our team has personally proved it. As we mentioned before, Dr. Pastorek has enjoyed the results of his chin augmentation for more than 30 years. 

2. It looks and feels natural 

When you choose chin augmentation with Dr. Pastorek, you get a partner committed to creating the ideal chin for your unique face shape. He uses different sized implants so you can get a feel for the best shape and size to meet your cosmetic goals.

Beyond ensuring that your new chin looks natural, Dr. Pastorek also uses implants that feel natural. That way, whenever anyone touches your chin, they’ll never know you’ve had a procedure. 

3. It’s safe

The FDA has approved the chin implants our team uses for lifelong use. You can rest easy knowing that you’re choosing an industry-tested, safe option for transforming your appearance. 

4. It can be done along with rhinoplasty

If you’re considering rhinoplasty (a nose job), you may want to talk to Dr. Pastorek about chin augmentation, too. By choosing these two procedures together, you get a way to transform your facial structure while ensuring that two of your most prominent features are well-balanced. Chin augmentation paired with rhinoplasty gives you a way to get an ideal face shape, including a properly proportioned profile. 

5. It can be paired with a facelift and neck lift

Not only can Dr. Pastorek combine chin augmentation with rhinoplasty, but he offers it with facelifts and neck lifts if you’re looking for a total treatment package. This way, you get anti-aging and cosmetic improvement at the same time.
