A chin that is too small or too large can negatively affect the proportion of the face and throw off facial harmony altogether. This can cause a lot of insecurity, self-consciousness and can even contribute to very low self-esteem. However, with chin augmentation surgery (genioplasty), your chin can be altered to a shape that is both flattering and complementary to your existing profile.
This can be achieved with implants or chin reduction surgery. Whichever route you choose, board-certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Frank L. Stile can create a custom treatment plan that addresses your specific concerns. At Stile Aesthetics in Las Vegas, NV, we want to educate and prepare our patients as much as possible.
Therefore, we conduct a thorough examination and present before and after photos and implant types to patients who are interested in undergoing this procedure. Chin augmentation can also be combined with other facial surgeries such as a facelift or rhinoplasty.
A patient will receive general anesthesia during chin surgery, which is performed as an outpatient procedure at our accredited surgical facility – Premium Surgical Services Center. Dr. Stile will make a small incision on either inside of the mouth or under the chin. An implant, which is made of biocompatible, medical-grade materials, will be placed carefully through the incision into a precisely created space.
After the implant is placed, the incision will be closed. If the incision was made in the mouth, the patient will have no visible scarring. For incisions under the chin, the scar will be carefully hidden and will be minimally detectable. The entire surgery takes around 1 hour to complete.
Take the first step. Get your questions answered and find out which treatment option is best for your concerns by meeting with Dr. Frank Stile at Stile Aesthetics for an in-person consultation.

*Individual Results May Vary
The best candidates for genioplasty:
After the swelling subsides in a few weeks, patients will be able to see the results of their surgery. The implant will look and feel like normal bone. More importantly, the implant will have the consistency of a patient’s natural tissue to make it appear more natural.
Right after a genioplasty, a dressing will be applied to the chin where it should remain for 3-4 days. Patients can expect some pain, tenderness, and swelling. Also, patients can experience a tight, stretched sensation following surgery. These symptoms usually go away in about one week.
