Ask Dr. K: What Is A Chin Augmentation?

A Chin Augmentation is a very common procedure in my practice with the aim of bringing balance and harmony to the proportions of the patient’s face. This is achieved by way of correcting a weak chin due to congenital deficiency, age-related bone absorption or facial trauma.

The procedure can vary in terms of process and magnitude depending on the severity and the desired result. It can be as simple as injecting a temporary filler to the area to  implanting a silicon chin implant, to even having a genioplasty, more commonly known as chin repositioning.

Reasons patients either request a chin implant or are advised to do so is to enhance the overall balance of the face. For instance, a weak chin make one’s nose appear larger and can even make the neck appear to have more fat. Adversely, a chin that is too large will steal focus from other features and will dominate the person’s appearance. Ideally, there should be a balanced relationship between the features and the structure of the face.
Although chin augmentation can be a routine procedure it is crucial, as with any surgery, that you do your research. Is your doctor board certified? Has your doctor performed this before and can you see before and after images? You can never be too informed when it comes to your health and safety so be sure to ask the tough questions and really make sure this something you want.
I have many patients who have received a chin augmentation, either on it’s own or complimentary to a rhinoplasty. If you have any questions, would like more information or would like to see more images of my patients with chin augmentation, do not hesitate to contact me.

It’s All About The Chin: A Patient’s Transformation

chin-for-blog

It’s amazing how minor adjustments can make a world of difference to someone’s appearance. Many patients visit Lift MD Aesthetics® either wanting a rhinoplasty, or are generally dissatisfied with their appearance and can’t pinpoint the problem–and often fail to pay attention what their chin is doing to their overall appearance. Frequently, the chin is a instrumental factor in the balance and harmony of the face and a chin augmentation can make the difference.

Inga had a nose injury as a young girl, and after years of growing, her nose became crooked and she was having major difficulties breathing. Dr. Kassabian knew a rhinoplasty and septoplasty would correct her issues with her nose, but a chin implant to compliment the nose would ultimately be the feature that completes the look she wanted. Check out Inga on Doctor Lift to see her amazing transformation.

Dr. Kassabian Is An ExpertInjector™!



Dr. Garo Kassabian is happy to announce that he is now a member of the NewBeauty Magazine ExpertInjector™ program.

When faced with the decision of choosing an injector for cosmetic treatments such as hyaluronic acid fillers or botulinum toxins, many consumers are motivated by factors such as peer influence or even the price of treatment. As consumer advocates, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and NewBeauty magazine emphasize choosing an injector based on their credentials. That’s why NewBeauty created the ExpertInjector™ program. Sadly, of the more than 1.2 million physicians legally allowed to perform cosmetic injectable treatments in the United States, less than 7 percent of them meet the qualifications to be an ExpertInjector™. Physicians with the ExpertInjector™ designation are board-certified plastic surgeons, facial plastic surgeons, dermatologists and oculoplastic surgeons who have demonstrated extreme due diligence regarding patient safety, reliable results and consumer education.

ExpertInjectors™ do not possess abilities beyond other qualified aesthetic providers. They have, however, received appropriate training in their approved core residency (plastic surgery, facial plastic surgery, oculoplastic surgery or dermatology), and through additional post-graduate medical education—making them well-qualified to perform injectables that require a keen understanding of underlying anatomy and possible problems.

“The Aesthetic Society is proud to endorse this program, particularly with the disturbing trend of  “back room Botox” and other injectable procedures being performed by individuals with no medical training at all,” said Jeffrey Kenkel, MD, president of ASAPS. “The ExpertInjector™ program raises the bar for patient safety.”
