What Is Chin Augmentation Surgery?

Many men and women suffer from an overly large or small ("weak") chin. Chin augmentation, also known as chin enhancement surgery, is an aesthetic treatment aimed at relieving these conditions. Depending on the size and shape of your chin, Dr. Shabnam Ghazizadeh can either reduce its profile or add an implant to create a stronger jawline for more cosmetic appeal. Our Newport Beach, CA aesthetic office also offers noninvasive alternatives, such as KYBELLA® filler, to help reshape the chin. If you're interested in achieving a more balanced look, contact Dr. Ghazizadeh MD to ask about chin enhancement surgery.

How Does Chin Enhancement Surgery Work?

Chin augmentation is typically carried out at Dr. Ghazizadeh MD using general anesthesia or IV sedation. To begin the surgery, an incision will be made under your chin. Through this incision, a groove or pocket is created to secure the implant device in its proper place, which includes shaving some of the bone and cartilage to create grooves to hold your implant in position. The chin implant is inserted through the incision and positioned on top of the bone, just below your bottom lip. In some cases, the incision can be created inside the lower lip where it meets your gumline. Regardless, both help to hide scars. Tiny sutures are used to close the incisions, and the bottom portion of your face will be wrapped with bandages. The results of your cosmetic chin surgery will be obvious right away, and many patients are amazed at the transformation they see. Although redness, swelling, and bruising will be present following your surgery, this only lasts a short while. For the majority of patients, chin augmentation roughly takes a couple of weeks of healing. Strenuous activity should be avoided while in this time frame. This particular surgery has extremely high success rates, particularly in the hands of an experienced surgeon, like Dr. Ghazizadeh.
