Improve your confidence.
Of all the features that affect our facial balance and overall appearance, the chin is perhaps the least discussed.
Dr. Janet K. Turkle performs chin augmentation surgery with chin implants in Indianapolis and Carmel and has beautiful results! She has found that many people are born with a chin that does not project as much as they would like and may take away from their overall facial balance. Chin implant surgery can improve this problem and often makes a dramatic difference in a person’s appearance. When the degree of improvement desired is more subtle or if a patient wishes to avoid surgery, filler injections may be used instead of an implant. These filler injections generally last up to a year and would need to be repeated. (Click here for more information on filler injections). When the changes desired are more dramatic or if a patient prefers a permanent “fix”, placing a chin implant is a more desirable option.
The implant can provide both projection and increased height of the chin leading to a stronger and more aesthetically pleasing profile. Chin surgery is often combined with cosmetic surgery of the nose to improve the entire facial profile
