With a weak or receding chin and regular functioning teeth and jaw, chin augmentation is an aesthetically pleasing solution for restoration of facial proportionality and symmetry. Implants and fillers add to the forward projection and lateral width of the mandible, enhancing angularity and appearance.
A chin augmentation surgery is an aesthetic surgical procedure designed to add length and width to your chin(mental protuberance). It is meant to be a solution for those with mild or moderate underdevelopment of the mandible bone. By either placing a silicone gel implant or using dermatological fillers, the appearance of the lower jaw can be made to project further forwards and give you a more symmetrical, angular and stronger looking chin and jawline.
The procedure takes about 45-60 minutes to complete and is performed with either a local or general anesthetic.
A stronger, more defined chin and jawline add to your overall level of self-esteem and confidence. Your lower face will be more in proportion to the total size of your face and nose.
We perform surgical chin augmentation with a silicone gel implant and non-surgical enhancement with dermatological fillers.
Before having a chin augmentation surgery, we will organize a consultation with our plastic surgeon. The plastic surgeon will examine you to determine which method best suits your needs.
A chin implant can be inserted from under the chin or from inside the mouth. When placed from under the chin, a tiny, almost invisible scar may remain. Scarring inside the mouth is not visible.
Once a chin implant is placed, it does not need to be changed. Most people will have one chin implant, which will last a lifetime.
Non-Surgical chin augmentation is an alternative procedure that involves using dermatological fillers (i.e., Juvederm, Restylane, or Radiesse) to increase the length, width, and projection of your chin. The method is non-surgical because there are no incisions and no scars. Usually, fillers will fully reabsorb in the body after 1,5-2 years after which you can repeat the procedure or choose to have the traditional surgical implant.
The only discomfort you will feel during the procedure is the initial injection to anesthetize the chin area. Once the anesthetic takes effect, you will not feel any pain.
Recovery from chin augmentation surgery is relatively quick. You can travel home after just a few days of rest and a check-up. Tightness and some swelling may remain for several days to a few weeks, but you can return to work after a week.
Recovery from chin augmentation surgery is relatively quick and easy. You will have a compression tape on the operated area for a few days to keep the implant firmly in its place. Depending on the incision method used, you may need to remove a few stitches five days post-op. Swelling and tightness can remain from for several days to a few weeks, but you can return to your healthy life after a week. It’s essential to follow the surgeon’s instructions for the best healing and results. Final results are almost immediately visible.
A chin augmentation surgery is typically combined with a rhinoplasty to achieve better symmetry on the face. Other procedures, such as Botox, facial fillers, double chin liposuction, facelift, protruding ears, and eyelid surgery, can also be considered.
Like all types of surgery, there are certain risks involved. General risks associated with a chin implant are usually temporary but can include edema, bleeding, infection, seroma (fluid accumulation) and a temporary loss of sensitivity in the chin area. All the risks of having a chin implant will be provided to you by the surgeon at the time of the consultation.
