About Chin Augmentation
Chin enhancement surgery (or genioplasty) is a cosmetic procedure that improves the look of the jawline and chin for patients with a recessive chin or one they feel is overbearing. Often when a chin lacks shape and size, it can create a weak profile. A weak chin can have an impact on other areas of the face and give the appearance of a disproportionately large nose or maxilla. Several aesthetic enhancements can be performed to highlight your chin, and one of the most common procedures is inserting an implant to reconstruct a more prominent jawline and a more appealing profile. Las Vegas, NV plastic surgeon Dr. Chris Costa offers many cosmetic improvements to consider for your chin enhancement. In addition to implants, which come in various sizes and shapes, noninvasive augmentations such as fillers can help add contour. For prominent chins, a reduction genioplasty might be an option. This reconstructive surgery at Platinum Plastic Surgery removes bone and cartilage to recontour your chin and jaw for a more balanced look.
Chin enhancement (augmentation) is an aesthetic option for men as well as women. If you are self-conscious because of the look of your chin and do not like the undefined profile it offers, this cosmetic enhancement can improve the lower region of your face and neck. It's also fairly common for our patients to get a rhinoplasty when they have their chin augmentation procedure. This blend of enhancements offers great reassurance for the prominent structures of your face to balance out.

During this procedure, general anesthesia will be administered or sedation by IV in some cases. The incision is carefully made just under your chin or inside the mouth at the gumline. In this incision, a pocket is surgically made to keep the implant device in its proper place. The chin implant is placed through the incision and positioned on top of the bone, at the border of the jawline. Regardless, both help to conceal scars. Thin sutures are used to connect and close the incisions, and your chin will be wrapped with bandages.
What to Expect
Chin enhancement treatment creates immediately noticeable results, which can be pretty exciting for our patients. Even though redness, swelling, and discoloration will be present after your surgery, this only lasts a short while. For many, chin augmentation takes about 1 – 3 weeks of healing. Heavy exercise should not be performed while in this recovery window. This particular surgery has historically high success rates, and by having it under the hands of a skilled surgeon like Dr. Costa, your outcome will be proportionate and refined.
