Chin augmentation, or genioplasty, involves incorporating a chin implant to alter the shape of your chin and jawline. In the hands of a highly skilled cosmetic surgeon, chin augmentation has the power to deliver a range of benefits.
Some of the goals that bring people in for chin augmentation include:
In general, the goal of chin augmentation is often a stronger, more defined jawline.
Chin augmentation usually begins with general anesthesia, which ensures you won’t feel a thing from start to finish. Your surgeon begins by creating an incision beneath your chin or inside your mouth.
This enables your specialist to reach the area close to your chin bone. They guide the implant to the correct position and carefully shape it around your natural bone tissue. Once your surgeon feels they’ve achieved the best possible position, they remove the surgical tools and close the incision, taking care to minimize scarring.
There are many different types of chin implants to choose from. During your consultation, your surgeon explains which options best align with your treatment goals.
Chin augmentation is one of the longest-lasting cosmetic surgeries available. Because your chin does not change much over time, the implant remains in place as you age.
There is no need for any long-term follow-up care or maintenance. For most people, the only thing that can alter their chin augmentation results is some sort of traumatic injury to the chin, like an auto accident or a blow to the face.
Many people choose to have chin augmentation combined with other cosmetic procedures like rhinoplasty (nose job) or liposuction on the neck. Doing so means you only have to go through anesthesia and recovery once.
