Introduction to Chin Augmentation
At Platinum Plastic Surgery in Las Vegas, chin augmentation is a common facial plastic surgery performed by Dr. Christopher Costa. 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. Dr. 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 genioplasty reduction 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.

Before & afters
What is 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.
Who are the Best Candidates for Chin Augmentation?
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.

What to Expect on the Day of Chin Augmentation
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.
