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.

Ideal Candidates

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

Absolutely Astonished - I went to Dr Brantley for my deviated septum and rhinoplasty. I did not know much at the time but after discussing everything on the consult i was confident i had made a good choice. I ended up getting a septic, rhino and chin implant. I was extremely nervous about the implant as i really did not know anyone who has had it done. A couple of weeks later the day of my surgery i was warmly welcomed at the surgery center. The pre-op staff was extremely friendly. I was treated with respect and i was extremely impressed but comforting staff. They did everything possible to make sure i was calm and comfortable. I do not remember much from the post-op staff but my family member said they was exceptional. I honestly and confidently say i have never experience a health care facility as welcoming and friendly as Dr Brantley staff. They worked with me on everything and answered any question I had. They quickly got my FMLA papers signed and sent back. After I got home and seen everything i was nervous about the results. If i did not tell you i had a chin implant done you would never know. The scar has healed great and i love the results and so glad I made the decision to get it. I am impressed with my rhino/septo. It is actually weird to be able to breath out of both side of my nose again and have a more symmetrical look. In the future were i need anything i will absolutely be going back. The staff made the experience a memorial one and they even called to check up on me a few days in the days after. Working in healthcare myself i can not speak more highly of this bunch!

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.

Anticipated Results

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.

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. If you want to find out if this surgery is right for you, contact our office today to schedule a consultation.

Will augmentation fix my double chin?

Chin augmentation is meant to give you a sharper, stronger look to your jawline. If you have a double chin, you may prefer a liposuction procedure to have the fat in your upper neck below the jawline (the submental area) addressed. Occasionally, this technique can give you a better jawline and look without a chin implant. Our team of plastic surgeons will discuss your options and recommended treatments during your consultation.

Can I combine other facial surgeries with chin augmentation?

Some people combine chin augmentation along with other facial surgeries, like eyelid surgery or nose reshaping surgery. Our team will help you decide the procedures match your needs and wants during your consultation. It can be difficult to decide by yourself what procedure or procedures will be best for you, which is why a consultation is so important. 

What's the difference between mentoplasty and genioplasty?

Chin augmentation surgery, also called mentoplasty, is a procedure that builds fullness to the chin. Genioplasty, on the other hand, is a procedure to reconstruct the chin bone. Based on the condition of your chin plus your aesthetic goals, you might need both surgeries or just one. A genioplasty, in addition to being a cosmetic procedure, may also be performed to improve medical concerns, like your dental bite. Our team of plastic surgeons will help you choose whether you should get chin augmentation (mentoplasty), genioplasty, or both.
