Chin augmentation, also known as chin enhancement surgery, is typically a great way to add projection and prominence to one’s chin. Many times, patients who undergo chin augmentation are looking to improve jawline contour or their upper neck in profile.
An Enhancement That Feels Natural
A top concern for many patients is that chin augmentation won’t feel natural, or will make them feel uncomfortable in their skin. This is not typically the case! Chin implants are small devices made from silicone, which is molded to fit around a patient’s chin bone. They vary in size and contour, depending on individual preference. These implants are designed to fit onto the patient’s chin seamlessly, resulting in natural-looking results and minor discomfort.
Augmentation Can Improve Facial Harmony
Chin augmentation can be used to bring more harmony to your facial structure. Surgeons will map out and bring your chin into proportion with other facial features for a more balanced appearance.
Pairs Well With Other Procedures
Chin enhancement can be performed as a stand-alone procedure or paired with other procedures for even better results. Many times, patients will choose to have chin augmentation in conjunction with rhinoplasty, a facelift, or even a neck lift for better proportioned facial features. These pairings often result in subtle, natural-looking results that compliment and balance your profile without exaggerating any particular features.
Fast Surgery Time
Chin augmentation is usually a procedure performed using general anesthesia. Your surgeon will make a small incision either underneath the chin or inside the mouth. This incision will create enough space for the chin implant to be inserted around your chin bone.
After this, the incision will be closed and the chin is bandaged. Typically, it takes less than an hour to perform a chin augmentation. This of course varies depending on whether you pair it with other procedures.
Very Low Risk
Chin enhancements are very low risk surgeries. Just like any other cosmetic procedure, there will be some swelling and bruising right after the surgery, but this should subside within a month to reveal your gorgeous-looking results.
