Chin Augmentation

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. When a chin lacks shape and size, it can often create an undefined profile. Both surgical and nonsurgical chin augmentation can be performed to highlight your chin. One of the most common procedures is inserting an implant to reconstruct a more prominent jawline and a more appealing profile. New Orleans, LA, plastic surgeon Dr. Jules Walters offers many cosmetic improvements for your chin enhancement. In addition to implants, which are manufactured in various sizes and shapes, noninvasive augmentations such as fillers can also help.

Ideal Candidates

Chin enhancement (augmentation) is an aesthetic option for men as well as women. If you are self-conscious because of the shape and appearance of your chin and do not like the undefined profile it offers, this cosmetic enhancement can improve the lower portion 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 proportionate and balanced.

Surgical Technique

During this procedure, local anesthesia, sedation by IV, or general anesthesia will be administered. The incision is carefully made just under your chin. In this incision, Dr. Walters makes a pocket surgically to keep the implant device in its proper place. 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 gratifying 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 to 3 weeks of healing. You should not perform heavy exercise during this recovery window. This particular surgery has historically high success rates, and by having it under the hands of a trained surgeon like Dr. Walters, your outcome will be proportionate and refined.
