Chin Augmentation Explained

right view chin augmentation before and after Chin augmentation, or mentoplasty, alters the chin with an enhancement of a chin implant or reduction surgery performed on the chin bone. Specially trained members specialize in chin augmentation for men.  The facial features of the chin and jawline can be impacted to help balance all facial features. If the nose is prominent or significant, it will appear even more so when connected with a weak chin or un-pronounced jawline. Changing the appearance of the chin and jawline can further improve the look of the face and enhance the looks of aging.

Male Candidates For Augmentation are:

  • In good health
  • Have realistic expectations for correcting a weak chin or subtle jawline

About The Procedure:

The surgery is achieved through a small incision inside the lower lip between it and the gums or in the natural crease line below the chin. The overlying tissues are lifted off the chin bone, allowing an implant to be placed over the deficient skeleton bone.  Sutures are used to close the incisions, and the scar is usually imperceptible.  Specially trained members perform this procedure using both approaches.

Chin implants can be made from a unique medical-grade material that looks and feels like natural bone, and they come in various amount of shapes and sizes so that they can fit to the individual.

Surgical times are an average of thirty minutes, and local anesthesia is commonly used. A small incision is made just beneath the chin for chin augmentation surgery. The implant is then inserted, and the incision is closed.

For jawline augmentation, an incision is made inside the mouth near the area of the third molars, and an implant is inserted. Both jawline and chin augmentation can be performed within the same surgery for male patients.

Recovery Post Surgery

Swelling post-surgery is common; swelling peaks typically at 24-48 hours after surgery. Heightened swelling does subside, however, extended swelling may occur and final surgery results can be identified within several months. Many male patients return to work within five days after chin augmentation surgery. Avoid strenuous exercise for about ten days.

Restrictions on activities and diet will occur during the recovery period. Specially trained members should instruct all patients in dental and oral hygiene post-surgery.
