Frequently, a combination surgery of rhinoplasty and chin implant is performed to provide better harmony and balance to the face on profile. If the nose projects out too far off the face and the chin is recessed, this creates an imbalance in the face and unfavorable proportions. Shortening the nasal tip with rhinoplasty or nose job surgery and bringing the chin out with a chin implant or chin augmentation will improve the balance of the face.
Most of the chin implants used are made of solid silicone and preshaped to fit around the chin/jaw. The shapes and sizes of chin implants may vary depending on the amount of augmentation which is necessary and what is desired. Men may want more of a squared off chin where women may simply want the chin to come out a little with a recessed jaw but not make the chin/jaw more square or wide.
