About Chin Augmentation
Having a weak or recessed chin can greatly detract from the overall appearance and aesthetics of your facial features. A strong jawline and defined chin can help balance out your face and the symmetry you're looking for. Our team of surgeons recommend a chin augmentation procedure to add volume to your jaw and create that strong look you've been wanting. At The Face & Body Center, we can help you choose the right implant for the best shape for long-lasting definition. We can also discuss injectable filler options if you're not quite ready for surgery. Call our Flowood, MS office today for a consultation.
The best candidates for chin augmentation surgery:
- Have a weak or short chin due to genetics or trauma
- Have a nose that appears too large
- Want a more proportionate look for facial balance
- Want a more distinctive profile
"Awesome Experince - After visiting just about every Surgeon in MS and LA, I saw Dr. Davidson, I knew right then he was my pick. In October 2016 I went in to the office and he drained my 450 each breast saline implants. No pain so simple, sent me home and said come back in 6 weeks. Mind you I still had the bags in. Thought this would be hard really never knew they were there. I had some pre-cancerous spots..."- A. / RealSelf / Jun 06, 2018

What to Expect
A patient will be under general anesthesia during chin surgery, which is performed as an outpatient procedure at an accredited surgical facility. Your plastic surgeon will make a small incision on either inside of the mouth or under the chin. An implant made of biocompatible, medical-grade materials will be placed carefully into the incision. After the implant is placed, the incision will be closed. If the incision was made in the mouth, you should have no visible scarring. For incisions under the chin, the scar will be carefully hidden to avoid detection. The entire surgery takes about an hour to complete.
Right after chin augmentation surgery, a dressing will be applied to the chin where it should remain for 3 – 4 days. You can expect some pain, tenderness, and swelling. Also, patients can experience a tight, stretched sensation following surgery. These symptoms usually go away in about one week. After the swelling subsides in a few weeks, you will be able to see the results of your surgery. The implant will look and feel like normal bone. More importantly, the implant will have the consistency of your own tissue to make it appear more natural.
Plan Your Procedure
define your profile
A short chin not only makes your profile look weak, but can also make your nose appear too large and disproportionate. While some patients think they need a nose job, they may only need chin augmentation surgery to achieve full facial harmony and symmetry.
