Who Is A Candidate For Chin Augmentation?

  • Individuals who have a small chin
  • Individuals who desire a stronger and more proportionate chin and jawline

Intended Results

  • To improve the contour of a small chin
  • To create stronger chin line
  • To bring out more proportion between the nose and chin
  • To improve the fatty collection under the chin

Procedure Description

A variety of differently shaped and sized silicone implants are placed over the chin using an incision either inside the mouth or under the chin. There are many different shapes or sizes of implants. Seattle plastic surgeon Dr. Egrari will determine what implant best suits your needs, and what areas of the chin and jaw are appropriate for augmentation.

The procedure is done as an outpatient under local anesthesia with sedation. If done in conjunction with rhinoplasty or a facelift, it is done under general anesthesia.

Many times, the fatty excess of the double chin area is also liposuctioned at the same time.

Recuperation And Healing Following Chin Augmentation

The procedure takes about 45 minutes. A post-operative garment is placed to make you feel more comfortable. Mild discomfort is controlled with oral pain medication. All sutures are under the skin or inside the mouth and will dissolve on their own. Most swelling and bruising are improved in seven days. Final definition is apparent in one month. Most patients are back to work after four to seven days.

Other Options Besides Chin Augmentation

The relationship between the nose and the chin is an important one in the definition and strength of the face. Because of this, often individuals who undergo rhinoplasty will be also be evaluated for possibility of having a chin implant.

Another group of patients that can benefit from chin implants are individuals who are having a facelift.

Updated May 2022
We have been fully operational since May of 2020. This includes skincare and our non-invasive center (ENIC).
We know that so much of this pandemic caused an inconvenience for you, but we are delighted to see a return to normalcy. 
We will continue to be vigilant in our approach to Covid 19. For over two decades, we have considered safety as our most important prerogative — and there has never been a more important time to put that to use.
Here are some things we’re doing to ensure you are protected and that we maintain this facility as a Non-Covid Care (NCC) zone:

Patient Flow and Clinical Office Space

We now have a well-tested protocol of texting patients for control of flow for consultations.
We are assigning everyone to hourly wipe-downs of high-use areas with approved sanitizing wipes.
We are asking that no one wait in the waiting area.
We are coming up with protocols for room wipe-downs after each patient visit.
Every staff member will always wear a mask while in the office.
Every staff member will sanitize or wash hands after every interaction.
Implementation of virtual pre-ops, nursing visits, and questions.

Similar precautions and questionnaires will be provided to establish Covid-19 Clear Status.
All staff will always wear a mask. All staff will always wear gloves.
Hand washing will be done for any patient interaction.
Specific wipe-down of our operating room, recovery, and pre-op areas will be performed.
We will minimize accompanying caretakers to only one. Those caretakers will be treated just like the patients.

Our anesthesiologists have been fully trained and are implementing all precautions for prevention of Covid-19 spread.
All circuits will be changed between each patient.
Full wipe-down of surfaces and floors will be performed.
We will implement a time-out protocol to confirm the Covid-19 Clear Status of every patient.

As you can see, we are taking this very seriously. We fully understand that this will cause some inconvenience in the short term, but realize that it is for the best.
Although Covid-19 has been a serious issue, we are seeing a resumption of normalcy. We continue to monitor this situation on a real-time basis, and we will not sit back until we know that we have done everything possible to avoid unnecessary exposure.
When you see us in action, you’ll realize that you have put your trust in the right practice.
