Chin / Jaw Augmentation

Chin Augmentation for men

jawlineChin augmentation, also known as mentoplasty, alters the chin with an enhancement with a chin implant or reduction surgery performed on the chin bone. Specially trained members specialize in chin augmentation for men.  The individual facial features of the chin and jawline can be impacted to help the balance of all facial features. If the nose is prominent or large, 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 as well as improve the looks of aging.

Male Candidates For Chin Augmentation are:

Good health
Realistic expectations for correcting a weak chin or subtle jawline

About Procedure:

Chin augmentation 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 making a space where an implant can be placed over the deficient bone of the skeleton.  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 special medical-grade material that looks and feels like natural bone, and they come in a various amount of shapes and sizes so that they can be fit to the individual.

Surgical times an average of thirty minutes and local anesthesia is commonly used. For chin augmentation surgery, a small incision is made just beneath the chin. 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 a jawline and chin augmentation can be performed within the same surgery for male patients.

Chin Augmentation Recovery

Swelling post jawline/chin augmentation 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 the areas of dental and oral hygiene post-surgery.
