Chin Augmentation

Changes to your chin can provide a dramatic improvement to your facial balance and can also enhance the appearance of your neck. At CaloAesthetics® Plastic Surgery Center, we perform chin augmentation for people from Lexington and Louisville, Kentucky, and Floyds Knobs, Indiana, using temporary injectable fillers or by surgically placing a chin implant.

Chin augmentation requires refined judgment, skill, and a good aesthetic eye. Dr. Calobrace and Dr. Quintero at CaloAesthetics® Plastic Surgery Center have extensive experience with chin augmentation. Request a consultation today or call (502) 899-9979 to schedule your visit.

Improvements from Chin Augmentation

Usually, a chin augmentation can dramatically improve your appearance and produce a more harmonious facial balance. Candidates for this procedure are in good health and have chins that do not project enough to balance their profiles. Improvements from chin augmentation include:

  • Balancing facial structure by correcting a weak or receded chin. A chin that appears weak may be due to congenital deficiency, age-related bone loss, or even facial trauma.
  • Making a prominent nose appear in better proportion with the rest of the face.
  • Defining the appearance of a neck that looks soft and overly fleshy.

Chin augmentation is often combined with other facial cosmetic surgery procedures such as rhinoplastyliposuction of the neck, or a facelift in our Kentucky practice. Combining procedures can enhance the results of both procedures.

About Chin Augmentation Surgery

Chin augmentation is usually performed as an outpatient procedure in our AAAASF-approved operating rooms using local anesthetic; in some cases, a general anesthetic is used. The surgery lasts about 1 hour in most cases. Dr. Calobrace and Dr. Quintero prefer silicone facial implants but will use other implant materials if necessary. The silicone used for chin augmentation has a very solid consistency and has a proven safety record over many years in use.

After you have been properly anesthetized, your surgeon will create a pocket for the implant and use sizers to determine the proper amount of projection and height for your enhanced chin. The incision is usually placed under the chin, where any scarring should be very unnoticeable once fully healed. Chin implants conform to the bone and appear very natural.

What to Expect During Recovery

Recovery after chin augmentation varies between patients. Some discomfort after the surgery is to be expected, but prescription medication can help you rest comfortably after surgery. A short-term antibiotic is also prescribed. It is recommended to avoid chewing hard foods for about a week.

After 1 Week

Sutures are removed in one week.

Return to Work

Most patients are ready to return to work and social activities once swelling around the chin subsides, which is typically within 4 to 5 days.

Other Things to Know

Chin augmentation requires patience and emotional stability in dealing with the healing period. Because swelling may be present for several months, the defined, chiseled look that patients desire may not become evident for 3 to 4 months.
