Chin Augmentation Candidates
By scheduling a consultation with Dr. Chhatre, you can discuss your cosmetic concerns and learn more about whether you are a good candidate for chin augmentation. Candidates need to be in good general health and possess concerns that can realistically be met through the surgery.
Chin augmentation can be used to effectively alter one or more the following:
- Weak or sloping chin
- Chin that is not well defined
- Undesirable chin height or width
- The look of a short or small jaw
- Disproportionate chin when compared to other features, e.g., the nose
It may be helpful to bring in photographs of chins that you find pleasing and possess traits you would like to achieve, facilitating a conversation between our team and yourself that will help to outline your unique approach to personalized treatment.
The Procedure: What To Expect
Dr. Chhatre uses three sizes of silicone implants during chin augmentation and will use his judgment to decide which will best enhance your profile by taking a number of factors into consideration in addition to your physical traits, including your gender and personality. Depending on each patient’s unique case, chin implants can be placed under the chin or through the mouth in a small incision below the lip. Both types of procedures result in very small scars.
Our chin augmentation procedure aims to create a 90 degree angle between the neck and chin, and some patients may wish to combine the surgery with liposuction to further enhance their results. If liposuction or tightening of the muscles is performed at the same time, patients will be advised to wear a chin strap to ensure even contouring post surgery. During a follow up appointment seven days after their augmentation, patients will return to the office to have their sutures removed and allow the doctor to check on swelling and bruising, which can be lessened using arnica oil throughout healing.
