What Is Chin Augmentation Used For?

 Chin Augmentation

Model-Not an Actual Patient

Chin augmentation, or chin implant surgery, may be the best option for you if you want a stronger-looking chin. This type of surgery is designed to improve your forward-facing appearance and your lateral profile all at once. With a better understanding of chin augmentation, you will be better able to determine if this is the right choice for you.

What Concerns Can Chin Augmentation Address?

The chin plays a critical role in how proportional our faces are. If the chin is too small, it can make the nose appear much larger. If the chin is too short, it can make the upper portion of the face look top-heavy. Chin augmentation can help to provide a stronger look to the chin and provide more balance to the face. It can also help to erase the appearance of a double chin,

What Are the Benefits of Chin Augmentation?

This subtle transformation can have a significant impact. Individuals can benefit from having a more proportionate chin and face following surgery. A more dominant appearing chin can also help to boost a patient’s self-confidence.

Am I a Good Candidate for Chin Augmentation?

If you feel as if your chin is not tall enough, wide enough, or appears overly weak, chin augmentation may be the best option for you. This procedure can help to add shape to the chin area and improve the facial profile.

Recovering From Chin Augmentations

After surgery, patients may experience swelling and tightness. The tightness may last for around two weeks. Adding a cold press to the area can help lessen the swelling and speed up the recovery process.

It is important to keep the head elevated after surgery for one to two weeks to help control swelling and protect the incisions.
