The chin plays a big role in the balance and overall appearance of your face. A weak or receding chin can have a profound effect on your jawline and neck, where a less defined or shorter chin can make double chins more prominent as you age. Whether you are looking to strengthen your jawline and improve definition, you may greatly benefit from chin augmentation or chin implants.
Chin augmentation is a facial cosmetic procedure growing in popularity. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, chin implants increased 71% between 2010 and 2011. Dr. Moein of Moein Surgical Arts can help you balance your face with your ideal chin.
Chin Augmentation Options
Dr. Moein understands that every patient’s chin is unique. Typically, men seek out a larger, stronger chin while women often sought after a smaller, softer chin. But Dr. Moein will listen closely to the patient’s aesthetic goals to help them achieve a chin that is appropriate for the patient. Check out the different approaches and options available for chin augmentation.
Chin Augmentation With Implants
Chin implants are a great option for patients seeking a permanent solution to reshape and improve their chin’s appearance. Dr. Moein will insert and position the implants through a small incision near the mouth and will be closed with sutures. You can expect to experience normal bruising and swelling following the procedure. We recommend your diet to be limited to liquids the day after, then ease into softer foods for the next 3 days or so depending on how you are feeling. Most patients can expect to be able to resume their regular activities after a week.
Dr. Moein also specializes in other facial implants to enhance the cheeks, jaw, temple, and neck. Please cheek out the facial implants for more information.
Chin Augmentation With Fat Grafting
Fat grafting is an option that can be used to augment and reshape the chin. This approach is ideal for patients who are looking for long term results but without more invasive surgery. Excess fat is harvested through liposuction from areas of the body such as the hips and abdomen. The fat will then be grafted and inserted to help sculpt the size and shape of your chin to the patient’s desired look. Patients can expect bruising from the insertion point around the chin. Patients may also experience some discomfort and soreness from the areas of liposuction. Physical activity and exertion should be limited for at least 1 week to allow for the healing post liposuction.
Chin Augmentation With Injectable Fillers
Injectable fillers are the shortest term solution of these chin augmentation options, but also the quickest. Fillers are a temporary enhancement that can add volume and change the shape of your chin. Results for chin augmentation using injectable fillers can last around 4 to 6 months. This treatment option is best for patients not willing to commit to permanent changes or undergo surgery. Patients can resume their regular activities immediately following this treatment, but can minor bruising may last up to a week. Results should be visible within the week of the procedure once the bruising subsides.
