What Is Chin Augmentation Surgery?

Chin augmentation is a surgical procedure performed to enhance the appearance of a weak or receding chin. It is an individually-tailored procedure that involves creating a pocket beneath the skin and placing a synthetic implant to create the desired facial contours. After careful evaluation, Dr. David Kahng will recommend the type of implant and surgical approach based on your unique facial anatomy.

Reasons to Have Chin Augmentation

More people than ever are turning to cosmetic surgery to correct flawed features and enhance facial appearance. Women and men are choosing to have chin augmentation to:

Correct a Weak or receding chin

Correct a weak or receding chin: Findings of a recent study have linked chin prominence with attractiveness to others. Many people want chin augmentation to achieve a more aesthetically pleasing facial balance.

Bring balance to the face

Bring balance to the face: Ideally, in profile, the chin and nose should be balanced with a similar vertical line. A weak chin can draw attention to the nose and make it appear more prominent. Chin augmentation may be performed in combination with nose reshaping to balance facial features and improve and enhance your overall facial profile.

Improve jawline contours in an aging face

Improve jawline contours in an aging face: When jowls begin to appear with aging, chin augmentation can create a more defined jawline. It may be performed in combination with a facelift or other cosmetic procedures.

Chin Augmentation Procedure

At Cara Plastic Surgery & Laser Center, chin augmentation in Orange County/Los Angeles is performed on an outpatient basis, usually under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation. Depending on the implant, our plastic surgeon will make a small incision on the inside of the lower lip or under the chin. Next, the surgeon will insert and place a silicone implant and close the incision with carefully-placed sutures.

What Is Recovery Like after Chin Augmentation?

As with any surgery, you can expect some bruising, swelling, and tenderness after chin augmentation surgery. This will subside as healing occurs. We will prescribe medications to control any post-surgical pain or discomfort.

Most patients are able to return to work and resume normal daily activities within a week after surgery. You will be instructed to avoid strenuous activity for 3 to 4 weeks.
