Dr. Steven Rueda is one of the most sought after chin augmentation surgeons in Palm Beach. His attention to detail and methodical technique create beautiful and natural results. Chin augmentation is a common facial plastic surgery procedure for women and men of all ages. A strong and well balanced chin creates an ideal facial profile. Most people also believe it adds a confident look on the face. It can also improve the contour between the face and the neck while generating a more youthful neck appearance. Chin augmentation can be accomplished by fillers, implants, and jaw bone reshaping. Although there are different options, most patients are better suited by one of the previous methods. Dr. Rueda is experienced in the three procedures and performs a careful evaluation to select the best option for your chin.
