Achieving a more masculine appearance with chin augmentation

Yes, chin augmentation tends to improve men's masculine appearance. This can be done using either chin implantation or sliding genioplasty. Chin implant placement is usually less expensive as it doesn't take as long nor does it require as much anesthesia. Actually advancing the bone can have distinct advantages in some people. Whis is mainly with regard to the multiple planes that the chin can be advanced (not just forward but also up, down, side to side).
