Chin projection is important in the facial profile, and the lack of adequate projection can lead to a sagging neck and the appearance of a larger than normal nose. The projection can be augmented using either a silicone implant or by cutting and moving the chin bone anteriorly. A small incision inside the mouth or under the chin can be used to achieve either purpose. Through a similar approach, removing the prominent bone can reduce a large chin.
