The purpose of placing an implant is to increase size and reshape of the chin that will eventually improve the appearance of the neck and face with a better proportion (facial harmony).
"Chin augmentation implant, mentoplasty or genioplasty, is a type of plastic surgery performed to reshape or increase the size of the chin in order to balance face appearance. Implantation is performed to add volume to the chin, whereas bone reshaping is done to reduce the size of the chin. Different sources have reported that chin augmentations can cause bruising and soreness for up to 2 weeks, it can also cause swelling which may persist for 1-1.5 months as well as numbness, which can be a common complication around the chin and can last around 3 weeks. It is important to inform patients that, in some instances, it has been observed that a chin augmentation does not provide the complete satisfaction sought for by the patient, which causes them to go in for more procedures to achieve “perfection.” People having long teeth with a short mandibular height should avoid this surgery as it is difficult to establish proportionate features for them. In general, patients with heart problems, those of ill-health and taking anticoagulants should not undergo the procedure."
