Chin Augmentation Beverly Hills

Chin Augmentation & Implants in Beverly Hills: What You Need to Know

The chin is a defining feature of the face, and adequate projection affects the appearance of the chin as well as well as overall facial proportions. Enhancing chin projection through facial surgery can visually elongate the appearance of the neck, can make one’s nose appear smaller, and can even enhance the lower lip appearance by adding support.
