About Chin Implants 

Chin augmentation using implants is a popular cosmetic treatment that reshapes the chin for patients with a recessed chin or one they feel is too weak. Often when a chin is too small, it can create an undefined profile. Surgical chin augmentation can be performed to enhance your chin, and one of the most effective is using an implant to reconstruct a more prominent jawline and a more appealing profile. Our Colorado Springs, CO plastic surgeons offer various options to consider for your chin augmentation. Implants are manufactured in numerous sizes and shapes to help give you the exact aesthetic look you desire, and this treatment can also be combined with neck liposuction for a fully sleek, contoured appearance. We encourage you to contact the Institute of Plastic Surgery today to learn more about this procedure and what we recommend to help you look your best.

Ideal Candidates

Chin augmentation is a treatment for for men as well as women. If you are unhappy with the shape and appearance of your chin and do not like undefined profile it offers, chin augmentation can improve the lower portion of your face. It's also fairly common for our patients to combine rhinoplasty along with their chin augmentation procedure. This combined approach offers great reassurance for the features of your face to be proportionate and balanced.

Surgical Technique

During chin augmentation, general anesthesia will be administered, or, in some cases, IV sedation. The incision is placed under your chin. In this incision, a surgical pocket is formed to hold the implant device in its proper place, which involves shaving some of the bone to create grooves to securely keep your implant in position. The chin implant is inserted in the opening and positioned on top of the bone, below your lower lip. Sometimes, the incision can be created inside the lip where it connects to your gumline. Both incision points help to conceal scars. Tiny sutures are used to safely close the incisions, and your lower face will be wrapped with bandages.

What to Expect

Cosmetic chin treatment generally produces immediate gratifying results, which can be extremely exciting for our patients. Even though facial swelling and discoloration and bruising will be present right after your surgery, this is temporary. In most cases, chin augmentation takes about two weeks to heal. Strenuous activity should not be performed during this time period. This particular surgery has extremely high success rates, and by having it under the hands of a trained surgeon, your outcome will appear natural and proportionate.
