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.
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.
"35 years ago, I had breast implant surgery. Over the course of those years, my breasts had encapsulated causing my breasts to look totally abnormal and very hard to the touch. Fast forward, I needed them removed. Dr Jain was recommended and I couldn't be more pleased. He replaced my implants (both of which had ruptured, but I didn't know it) with the type of implant that much reduces the possibility of encapsulation and no chance of old-school rupture. The results are simply stunning. Soft, normal shaped and just the right size. The surgery was a bit complicated, but Dr. Jain's expertise was key in getting the results I wanted. Dr. Jain is gifted, and very attuned to the needs of the patient. He gave me a realistic description of what to expect and he delivered. His staff is wonderful--very attentive and supportive. Overall, I couldn't be more pleased. Highly recommend."- P.D. / Google / Nov 20, 2018
"I love my new neck! I recommend Dr. Jain. You will not be disappointed! - I love Dr. Jain and his staff! Dr. Jain tells you the truth about what he can do for you. I have had other doctors who promised what they would do and how I would look and it did not turn out that way. I am so happy with the procedure Dr. Jain did for me. He was very kind and honest with me. If you need a procedure done I recommend Dr. Jain. You will not be disappointed!"- W. / RealSelf / Dec 20, 2019
"Dr. Dash is Amazing!!!! - I had my implant exchange a few hours ago and I can’t say enough positive things about my experience with Dr. Dash. She is the most personable doctor I have ever met. The entire procedure went smoothly and I have very minimal discomfort. She listened to my concerns and I felt 1000% comfortable in her care."- S. / RealSelf / Sep 23, 2019
"Dr Jain is amazing. My daughter has a birth mark on her face. I did a lot of research and took my daughter in for the consult. He made my very anxious/nervous daughter & I feel at ease. He did an amazing job. We won't see the final results till after hopefully only 1 more procedure."- K.N. / Facebook / Jul 10, 2019

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.
