What is Chin Augmentation?

Chin surgery, also known as mentoplasty, is a surgical procedure to reshape the chin either by enhancement with an implant or reduction surgery on the bone. Many times a plastic surgeon may recommend chin surgery to a patient having nose surgery in order to achieve facial proportions, as the size of the chin may magnify or minimize the perceived size of the nose. Chin surgery helps provide a harmonious balance to your facial features so that you feel better about the way you look.

Dr. Hamid Karimi and his staff were wonderful. They took great care of me! I feel so much more confident in my appearance now and gives me more confidence in life
My results are subtle to others but life changing to myself. Dr. Hamid Karimi was very professional and I trusted him completely. I am extremely happy with my results thus far (2.5 months post-op). I will most definitely recommend him to friends and clients in the future
