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.
