What is chin augmentation surgery like to experience?

A chin augmentation procedure is performed with local anesthesia. The implant is placed through an incision within the mouth or just under the chin. Some sutures may be placed to ensure the implant stays in position while the area is healing. This surgery takes one to two hours to complete and may be performed with other facial enhancement treatments, such as a facelift, brow lift, rhinoplasty, neck lift, or neck liposuction.

Chin Augmentation Before & After

Recovery time after chin augmentation what to expect?

For the first few days after chin augmentation, some swelling and bruising are expected, along with numbness and tingling, side effects that may affect your speech for a day or two. Sleep on your back with your head elevated, and avoid any activity that could stress the surgical site, such as heavy lifting, bending over, or vigorous exercise. Most patients are well enough to return to work or other activities within about a week to ten days.

As the incision may be placed inside the mouth, with the benefit of no visible scarring, you may be on a soft food diet, such as yogurt, applesauce, soups, and similar foods, until the incision is fully healed. It takes some time for full healing to occur, with the final result achieved in the months ahead as the tissues settle. Your new chin structure will look and feel totally natural.

Will a chin implant make my nose look smaller?

Can a chin implant create a more masculine jawline?

Do chin implants come in many sizes and shapes?

What are the reasons for chin augmentation?

People with poor chin structure can dramatically improve their profile and facial balance with custom chin augmentation.

What surgeries can be combined with chin augmentation?

Chin augmentation surgery may be performed along with other procedures, whether surgical or non-surgical. For those with a receding chin and excess submental (under the chin) fat, chin liposuction may be performed in conjunction with the augmentation. Other patients may choose to undergo eyelid surgery, a facelift, a neck lift, or treatment with injectables such as BOTOX or dermal fillers.

Will a chin implant make my nose look smaller?

Many people who feel their nose is too large may require chin augmentation rather than rhinoplasty, although the surgeries can be performed together. Increasing the size, projection, or shape of the chin and jawline has a beneficial side effect, as this procedure balances the facial structure, making the nose look smaller.

Can a chin implant create a more masculine jawline?

Many male patients undergo chin augmentation surgery to obtain a more classically masculine, structured jawline.

Do chin implants come in many sizes and shapes?

Yes. These silicone implants come in a vast array of sizes and shapes, from those that enhance both the chin and jawline to those that only add volume to the front of the chin or alter the jawline to appear V-shaped, square, or oval.
