About Chin Augmentation

Chin enhancement surgery (or chin augmentation) is a highly sought after cosmetic treatment that improves the look of the jawline and chin for patients with a recessive chin or one they feel is overbearing. Often when a chin lacks shape and size, it can create a lack of profile definition. Cosmetic chin surgery can be performed to highlight your chin, and one of the most common procedures is inserting an implant to reconstruct a more prominent jawline and a more appealing profile. Naples, FL aesthetic plastic surgeon Dr. Andrea Basile offers many cosmetic improvements to consider for your chin enhancement. In addition to implants, which are produced in various sizes and shapes, noninvasive augmentations such as fillers or Kybella can help add a better contour. For prominent chins, genioplasty might be an option. This reconstructive surgery at Basile Plastic Surgery removes bone and cartilage to recontour your chin and jaw to a more balanced look.

Ideal Candidates

Chin enhancement (augmentation) is an aesthetic option for men as well as women. If you are self-conscious because of the appearance of your chin and do not like the undefined profile it offers, this cosmetic enhancement can improve the lower aspect of your face and neck. It's also fairly common for our patients to get a rhinoplasty when they have their chin augmentation procedure. This blend of enhancements offers great reassurance for the prominent structures of your face to be in line and balanced.

Surgical Technique

During this procedure, general anesthesia will be administered or sedation by IV in some cases. The incision is carefully made just under your chin. In this incision, a pocket is surgically made to keep the implant device in its proper place, which involves removing and shaving some of the bone and cartilage to create grooves to securely hold your implant in position. The chin implant is placed through the incision and positioned on top of the bone, directly below your lower lip. Sometimes, the incision can be created inside the crease in the lower lip where it connects to your gumline. Regardless, both help to conceal scars. Thin sutures are used to connect and close the incisions, and your chin will be wrapped with bandages.

What to Expect

Chin enhancement treatment creates immediate, obvious results, which can be pretty exciting for our patients. Even though redness, swelling, and discoloration will be present after your surgery, this only lasts a short while. For many, chin augmentation takes about 1 – 3 weeks of healing. Heavy exercise should not be performed while in this recovery window. This particular surgery has historically high success rates, and, by having it under the hands of a reputable surgeon like Dr. Basile, your outcome will be proportionate and refined.
