Our chin is the most basic structure that forms the lower part of our face. In addition to being a building with its own aesthetic elements, it is also in an aesthetic connection with other structures around it. For example, a small chin makes the jowl lubrication more evident and causes the neck to appear loose and drooping. Likewise, a chin without sharp corners causes rounded facial features and cheeks that look chubbier than they are.

Aesthetic problems of the chin can occur not only when it is small, but also when it is larger and sharper than it should be. While a larger and sharper chin looks better especially in men, we avoid this square image in women.

The aesthetic problem of the chin, which is more common in society, is the smallness of the chin. If this smallness is small, it can be removed with hyaluronic acid fillers or fat injections. We can correct more advanced smallness with polyethylene or silicone prostheses. The physician and the patient decide together which technique to use.

Recovery time in chin aesthetics varies according to the procedure performed. The recovery period in prosthesis and fat injection procedures is 5 days. During this time, special tapes are used.
