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 Augmentation Ideal Candidates
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.

"DrCosta is a MIRACLE DOCTOR!!! Honestly, I had lost hope after 2 previous breast surgeries years prior. I had interviewed many doctors from Vegas to Utah and DrCosta was optimistic from the go. I had a complex breast lift (see pics) and I was hopeful for just fair results. I was SHOCKED by how amazing the results were!!! It was exactly what we had discussed. My photo below is only one week post op. I had a breast lift, implants, bbl, and lipo. Do yourself a favor and stop interviewing other doctors! If you need ANY procedure, see DrCosta. Not to mention after surgery, he was available by text 24/7 and responded within a minute each time we had any questions. I couldn’t be happier!!!"- C. / RealSelf / Mar 24, 2020

Chin Augmentation Surgical Technique
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 with Chin Augmentation
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.
