What is a Chin Augmentation Surgery?

The facial bone structure is one of the most important qualities for a harmonious facial appearance. Having a weak chin can make a regular-size nose look bigger. A Chin Implant, or Chin Augmentation Surgery, helps balance the facial structure in order to give a more attractive, aesthetic look.

Who is the Ideal Patient?

The best candidates for chin augmentation are patients over 18 years old with a weak or receding chin, but with a normal dental bite.

How is it performed?

In a minor Chin Augmentation, a implant is placed under the skin to strengthen the appearance of the chin. During this cosmetic surgery procedure, the surgeon selects the proper size and shape of the implant to enhance the patient’s appearance according to his or her facial bone structure.

A major Chin Augmentation may require a bone surgery procedure called Osteotomy. In this case, the chin bone is cut and moved forward to its new position.

The cosmetic surgeon will select the most adequate procedure according to the patient’s needs.

This procedure is an outpatient surgery (also known as ambulatory surgery), which means the patient can go home the same day of the procedure.

The surgery lasts around 1 hour and the patient must be under observation for approximately 4 hours.

Recovery Process

Recovery is around 1 week long, and you’ll start seeing final results around one month after the procedure, once your face has completely recovered, but you will begin to see results around the 7th day after the surgery. You must attend to a check-up consultation 7 days after the procedure.
