About Chin Augmentation

Chin augmentation is one of the most satisfying procedures performed in facial plastic surgery. Dramatic improvements can be realized with only a small, subtle change, and patients are generally very gratified. The effect of chin augmentation on facial harmony is the reason chin augmentation is sometimes recommended with rhinoplasty, a facelift or facial liposuction.

Chin augmentation typically produces excellent results, including:

  • A stronger chin and balanced profile
  • Improved overall facial harmony
  • Enhanced neck and jaw line

Chin Augmentation Procedure

Chin implant surgery is a straightforward and proven procedure that our doctors perform on its own or in combination with other facial procedures. During chin augmentation, a carefully sized, medical-grade implant is placed behind the chin muscles through a small incision under the chin. This moves the muscle and overlying skin of the chin forward.

Chin implant surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia in an accredited outpatient surgery center, and takes anywhere from 30 minutes to 3 hours to complete.
