How Does Chin Augmentation Work?

Dr. Stile performs chin augmentation as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia. He will make a small incision either inside the mouth or under the chin and insert the chin implant. Dr. Stile’s experience with facial augmentation will allow him to choose the perfect chin implant to improve your facial features. Scars inside the mouth will not be visible, while a small scar under the chin will almost disappear. 

How Long is Recovery From Chin Augmentation?

After surgery, Dr. Stiles will place bandages over the area and give you instructions on how to take care of yourself for the following few days. After the removal of the bandages after three to four days, you should continue to rest and recover. Most people go back to work and moderate activities of daily living within a week. The skin may feel tight for a few days to weeks as the body adjusts to the implant, but this will go away.

What are the Benefits of Chin Augmentation?

Chin augmentation has benefits besides making the chin larger. The harmony between the chin and other facial features can affect the appearance of the entire face. Correcting a chin that does not fit with a person’s face can make a dramatic change. Benefits include:

  • Improve facial balance
  • Enhance the chin to balance the results of a rhinoplasty
  • Augment a small chin that makes the jaw look too small
  • Improve the neckline and appearance of excess skin
  • Firm and strengthen the appearance of the jawline

Other facial features that seem too large or prominent, such as the nose, may look more harmonious with an augmented chin. 

How Much is Chin Augmentation?

While every procedure has its own costs, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons estimates that a chin augmentation costs on average $3137. This fee does not include factors like anesthesia, medications, cost of materials, and your surgeon’s experience and skill. Dr. Stiles recommends a consultation to help determine a more accurate estimate for your procedure. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Chin Augmentation?

If you feel like your chin is too small or out of balance with the rest of your face, you may be a good candidate for chin augmentation. If you have a rhinoplasty, Dr. Stile may review with you whether you would also make a good candidate for chin augmentation to provide balance to your reshaped nose.
