Chin Augmentation


Our profile view can often times be something that we become unhappy with. Many people feel that they have a “weak” looking chin, or that it protrudes too much, creating an unbalanced look to their face. Chin augmentation is a way to treat either the receded or extended chin. For patients who feel as if they have one of these types of chin, chin augmentation is the best way to help restore balance and structure to their face.

Chin Augmentation Surgery

It is important to understand that not always is this an easy fix. Sometimes there are more issues that are causing the weak profile, and it may not be just involving the chin. If this is the case, then more complicated procedures may be necessary. In order to understand if a chin implant will help you with the desired result you are looking for it is best to consult with Dr. Neaman or Dr. Christiansen so you can identify all that may or may not be necessary.


Chin Augmentation Incisions

If Dr. Neaman & Dr. Christiansen believe that a chin implant will help improve your look and get you the desired results you are looking for, then usually a soft silicone rubber type implant will be placed through an incision the lower lip or chin. This implant is then usually anchored to the jawbone with small wires and usually screws to ensure that it remains stable. Chin implants come in all shapes and sizes and will be discussed at time of your consultation.


Chin Augmentation Recovery

Dr. Neaman & Dr. Christiansen see that most of their chin implant patients resume normal activity in about five days. Swelling and numbness to the area may occur during the recovery period. In addition, your lower lip may feel somewhat stiff or taut for some time. Usually always these side effects fix themselves over time.
