What Is Chin Augmentation?

Chin augmentation is a procedure that enhances the shape of your neck and jawline by giving more prominence to a recessed (under-projected) chin.

This is generally accomplished via fat grafting and is often done in combination with facelift or neck lift surgery. A chin implant can also be used, which is inserted below your skin and placed around your chin bone. These techniques change your facial shape by recontouring your chin. When you meet with Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz, you can discuss what changes you want and how to prepare for your surgery. Many patients also choose to have a facelift or neck lift done at the same time as their chin augmentation. This helps define your jawline and contour your overall facial appearance even further.

Why Should I Receive a Chin Augmentation?

If you think your face lacks symmetry due to a weak or recessed chin, chin augmentation can restore balance through the use of implants. This augmentation can improve your overall appearance by making your chin more proportionate with the rest of your face. Achieving this new look can help you regain confidence and restore your self-esteem.

What to Expect During a Chin Augmentation?

This surgery is considered an outpatient procedure. Although it normally lasts an hour, your surgery may be longer if you also have other procedures done at the same time. Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz performs all facial surgery under local and/or twilight sedation. Without the use of general anesthesia, bruising, swelling and recovery times are substantially minimized.

Learn more about the benefits of Twilight Sedation during your facial surgery with Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz. After your procedure has been completed, you’ll be sent to a recovery room as you come out of sedation. You will also be monitored to make sure there are no complications.

The Chin Augmentation Procedure

Though the procedure will vary somewhat from person to person. Depending on your goals, Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz will help in choosing the best option for you.

Fat Grafting

Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz primarily utilizes fat grafting techniques as an effective and reliable alternative to chin augmentation with chin implants. Fat grafting techniques can deliver lasting improvement to your profile using your excess fatty tissue from a donor site elsewhere on the body.

Injectable Treatment

Alternatively, a non-surgical chin augmentation can be performed by Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz with the use of injectable fillers such as Juvederm Voluma. The dermal filler is artistically placed under the skin and against the bone to provide projection and shape to the chin. This procedure provides a temporary result, lasting up to 2 years.

Chin Implant

Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz will make an incision either under your chin or inside your mouth while you are under sedation. The implant will then be inserted around your existing chin bone. Once the implant(s) has been placed, Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz will stitch the incision(s) closed with dissolvable sutures.

Chin Augmentation FAQ

People who experience a lack of jawline definition or have a recessed chin, or who feel uncomfortable with the proportions of their face, often seek a chin augmentation. This can not only restore facial harmony, but it can also improve the proportions of your neck, nose, and cheeks, as well as reduce the appearance of a double chin.

As with most surgeries of any nature, there will be soreness due to the presence of the implants around your chin. However, most patients say they have no discomfort after their procedure and take over-the-counter pain relievers only if needed.

If your incision was made under your chin, there will be a small scar. After six months, this will fade and become nearly invisible. If the incision is done inside your mouth, then there will be no visible scarring.

Because this procedure is often combined with other facial surgeries, costs vary for chin augmentation. As this is normally an elective cosmetic surgery, insurance providers do not usually cover the costs. However, there are financing and payment options available, which you can discuss during your consultation.

If you would like to receive chin augmentation in Miami, Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz requires that all patients meet for a consultation prior to scheduling surgery. This allows Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz to evaluate and establish eligibility for the procedures. Good candidates have normal function in their jaws, general good health, and a moderately weak chin.

There will likely be swelling for up to a week, and total recovery time can take up to three weeks.
