What is chin augmentation?

Chin augmentation surgery typically involves placing a custom chin implant to create the best profile. Another approach that may be appropriate for some patients is called genioplasty – a procedure that alters the position of the jawbone. Your facial profile can be enhanced to create balance and harmony among your features, or to add structure to the jawline, often performed on men who want a more masculine facial look.

Your custom chin augmentation – what does it entail?

To plan your chin augmentation requires an eye for facial balance and harmony. Choosing a custom chin implant is a critical part of the process. These implants are crafted from a medical silicone that the body accepts. The implant can add volume just to the chin itself, or to both chin and along the jawline. The incisions are placed within the mouth, or hidden beneath the chin, after which the implant is put in place. The surgery takes about one hour to complete and requires only intravenous sedation and local anesthesia.

Am I a candidate for chin augmentation?

If you have any of the following aesthetic issues, you may be an ideal candidate for this custom surgery:

  • Receding chin
  • Uneven chin structure
  • Weak chin
  • Sloping line from chin to upper neck
  • Small chin structure
  • Lack of volume at the jawline

What is the recovery time?

When your chin augmentation is complete, you can return home to rest and recover. When the incision is within the mouth, you will have dietary restrictions while the incision heals, eating only soft foods, and avoiding any food that is very hot, spicey, or chewy. 

You will rinse your mouth with an antibacterial mouthwash on a specific schedule to speed healing and avoid any complications. When placed beneath your chin, a special ointment will be applied so the incision heals nicely and quickly. Any swelling or bruising fades quickly, with most patients able to return to work or other activities within three days to a week. 

Combination procedures: Chin augmentation and rhinoplasty

Many patients choose to undergo rhinoplasty and chin augmentation in a single surgical appointment, to create a more dramatic change in the facial balance, and a beautifully sculpted profile.
