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.

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.

There are a wide variety of “problem areas” for which Chin Augmentation surgery patients have been successfully treated. These areas can include (but are not limited to:

  • Weak or recessed chin
  • Lack of definition in the jawline
  • Double chin or excess fat under the chin
  • Uneven or asymmetrical chin
  • Chin retrusion (chin that sits too far back)
  • Chin protrusion (chin that juts too far forward)
  • Genioplasty (chin surgery) complications from previous surgeries
  • Aging-related sagging or drooping of the chin
  • Chin dimpling or creasing
  • Chin deformities due to trauma or injury
  • Congenital chin abnormalities
  • Overly prominent or prominent chin

We believe in empowering individuals to embrace their natural beauty through transformative cosmetic enhancements. Chin augmentation surgery, also known as genioplasty, offers a range of benefits to enhance facial aesthetics and boost self-confidence. Here are four key advantages of chin augmentation surgery:

Improved Facial Harmony

Chin augmentation surgery helps to bring balance and proportion to the face by enhancing the size and shape of the chin. By creating a more harmonious relationship between the chin, nose, and other facial features, patients can achieve a more symmetrical and aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Enhanced Jawline Definition

A well-defined jawline is a hallmark of youth and attractiveness. Chin augmentation can strengthen the jawline and create a more sculpted appearance, resulting in a more youthful and attractive facial profile.

Increased Self-Confidence

Transforming the appearance of the chin can have a significant impact on self-esteem and confidence. Many patients report feeling more confident and self-assured following chin augmentation surgery, allowing them to face the world with renewed confidence and poise.

Correcting Facial Imbalances

Chin augmentation surgery is an effective solution for addressing facial imbalances and asymmetries. Whether the chin is too small, recessed, or disproportionately large, genioplasty can help to correct these issues and restore facial harmony.

Enhance Your Look

With Dr. Ghazizadeh's expertise and personalized approach, patients can expect natural-looking results that enhance their unique facial features while preserving their individuality. If you're considering chin augmentation surgery, schedule a consultation to learn more about how this procedure can help you achieve your aesthetic goals and boost your confidence.

Determining whether chin augmentation surgery is the right choice for you involves considering various factors such as your aesthetic goals, facial anatomy, and overall health. If you're bothered by a weak or recessed chin, lack of jawline definition, or facial asymmetry, chin augmentation may be a suitable solution. Whether you're seeking to enhance your facial harmony, improve your profile, or boost your self-confidence, chin augmentation surgery can help you achieve a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing appearance.

During a consultation with Dr. Ghazizadeh, she will carefully evaluate your facial structure, discuss your concerns and goals, and recommend the most appropriate treatment plan for achieving your desired results. Our team will work closely with you to understand your aesthetic goals and create a personalized treatment plan tailored to achieve natural-looking results that complement your facial structure.

The chin augmentation surgery process begins with a comprehensive consultation with Dr. Shabnam, during which she will discuss your aesthetic goals, assess your chin anatomy, and determine the most suitable approach for your unique needs. Once it's confirmed that chin augmentation is the right option for you, a personalized surgical plan will be developed to achieve your desired outcome. On the day of the procedure, you will be comfortably sedated or under general anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the surgery. Dr. Shabnam will make carefully placed incisions, typically hidden within the natural contours of the chin or inside the mouth. Depending on the chosen technique, a chin implant may be inserted to enhance the size and projection of the chin, or fat grafting may be utilized to add volume. After the procedure, you can expect some swelling and bruising, which will gradually subside over the following weeks. Dr. Shabnam will provide detailed post-operative instructions to support your recovery journey and ensure optimal results.

Chin implants, also known as chin augmentation, involve the placement of synthetic implants to enhance the size and projection of the chin. This procedure is ideal for individuals seeking a more defined chin profile and improved facial balance.


Fat grafting, or fat transfer, involves harvesting fat from one area of the body and injecting it into the chin region to add volume and contour. This natural approach offers subtle enhancement and can be customized to achieve desired results.


Genioplasty, or chin surgery, involves reshaping the chin bone to improve its size, shape, and projection. This surgical technique is suitable for individuals with structural abnormalities or asymmetry in the chin area.

Am I a good candidate for chin augmentation surgery?

Good candidates for chin augmentation surgery are individuals who have a weak or recessed chin, asymmetry in the chin area, or wish to improve the overall balance of their facial features. A consultation with Dr. Ghazizadeh can determine if you are a suitable candidate based on your goals and medical history.

What are the different types of chin augmentation procedures available?

Chin augmentation procedures include chin implants, sliding genioplasty (repositioning the chin bone), and jawline contouring surgery. Each technique offers unique benefits and may be recommended based on your specific anatomical features and desired outcome.

What can I expect during the recovery period after chin augmentation surgery?

Recovery from chin augmentation surgery typically involves swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the chin and jaw area. Dr. Ghazizadeh will provide detailed post-operative instructions, including how to manage pain, care for the surgical site, and when to resume normal activities.

Are there any risks or complications associated with chin augmentation surgery?

Like any surgical procedure, chin augmentation surgery carries potential risks and complications, including infection, implant displacement, nerve injury, and asymmetry. However, these risks can be minimized by choosing an experienced and board-certified facial plastic surgeon like Dr. Ghazizadeh.

How long do the results of chin augmentation surgery last?

The results of chin augmentation surgery are typically long-lasting, providing permanent improvement to the shape and proportion of the chin. However, factors such as aging, weight fluctuations, and lifestyle habits can affect the longevity of the results. Regular follow-up appointments with Dr. Ghazizadeh can help monitor your results over time.

After chin augmentation surgery, it's essential to follow post-operative care instructions provided by Dr. Ghazizadeh to ensure a smooth recovery process. You may experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the chin area following the procedure, which is normal and typically subsides within a few days to a week. Dr. Ghazizadeh may recommend using cold compresses and prescribed pain medication to manage any discomfort.

It's important to avoid strenuous activities and follow a soft foods diet during the initial recovery period to promote healing. Most patients can return to work and regular activities within one to two weeks, although full recovery may take several weeks. Dr. Ghazizadeh will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and ensure optimal results.
