What to Expect From a Chin Augmentation Procedure

A chin augmentation procedure can create a more balanced profile for individuals who desire a stronger jawline and more proportionate facial features. Often completed in conjunction with rhinoplasty, the placement of a chin implant can reshape the face and often results in a more youthful appearance. Before opting for this form of cosmetic surgery, individuals should learn more about what to expect from a chin augmentation procedure.

Candidates for Chin Implants

Most people who are generally in good health can safely undergo chin augmentation. Individuals should also have realistic expectations about the results of this procedure, which can balance and enhance a person’s features but will not completely transform the face.

Preparing for the Procedure

Chin augmentation starts with a cosmetic surgery consultation. Clients will discuss their aesthetic goals, their overall medical history, and share their history of cosmetic procedures with their surgeon. The surgeon will ask questions about the patient’s goals for the surgery and determine whether this procedure aligns with the individual’s medical needs and desired results. Those who smoke must quit several weeks before the surgery date.

During Chin Augmentation

This surgery is usually an outpatient procedure and lasts about 30 to 60 minutes. The surgeon will make a small incision under the lower lip or below the chin through which the implant can be inserted. Some implants use the patient’s own fat or tissue, while others use silicone or a similar material. Pain management is provided through local anesthesia.

The Recovery Process

Clients should arrange for a loved one to pick them up after the surgery and stay with them overnight. The surgeon will provide instructions about foods and beverages to avoid in the hours and days following the surgery. Most people can return to work within a few days of having achin augmentation procedure. Side effects are usually minimal and include bruising and swelling at the surgical site that should resolve within a few days.
