Chin Augmentation

Chin Augmentation is an operation to improve your facial profile if you have a “weak” or receding chin. If you were born with these facial features, we can be achieved through the use of facial implants.

Chin implants (Genioplasty)

A small or weak chin, like a disproportionate nose, can affect the overall harmony of a face. Whether done at the time of nasal surgery or facelift surgery, or as a separate procedure, a chin implant can produce a dramatic improvement in facial profile and balance. Chin augmentation with implants is among the most common and popular facial implant procedures.

Depending on the patient’s needs, often times facial implants are used in conjunction with another cosmetic procedure such as facelift, eyelid or nose surgery and/or non-surgical methods, such as dermal filler injections around the mouth, to give the most balanced effects. Unless the implant is removed, these results are permanent.

With chin surgery, an implant is inserted in front of the jawbone in order to augment the chin or jaw. A small incision is made inside the mouth to allow the implant to be positioned in a pocket just under the skin. An alternate location for this incision is below the chin (on the outside). Chin surgery is commonly performed along with rhinoplasty (nose surgery). With cheek augmentation, incisions are made either inside the mouth, through the lower cheek, or directly below the bottom eyelid on the high cheek. Cheek surgery is often performed in conjunction with a facelift procedure. Both chin and cheek implant procedures normally last from 30 minutes to one hour.

Chin implants are usually inserted through a small incision made under the chin. As with all incisions, there will be some bruising and swelling. For most patients, these only last for a few days after surgery, with a very small incision scar.

Facial implants are a safe, straightforward surgical alternative that can result in dramatic, natural-appearing improvements. Are you interested?
