If you are looking to improve the overall harmony of your face and balance your profile, a chin augmentation may be an appropriate procedure for you. There are two methods for augmenting the chin, and both are performed by our award-winning plastic surgeons in Houston. It can be done with an implant or by fat transfer.
The Board Certified plastic surgeons at The Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery use chin implants to give a patient a stronger chin and better defined jawline. For patients that need a minor improvement to their facial profile, a fat injection is a very natural looking solution.
Chin augmentation is often performed in addition to other facial procedures, such as a rhinoplasty or neck lift. The nose and the chin are two very dominant facial features that can bring harmony to the face or be a source of unbalance which attracts attention. Patients that are concerned about a large nose often have a rhinoplasty and chin implant to make the nose a bit smaller and the chin a bit bigger. These two subtle changes can balance the features and bring harmony to the face as a whole.
Similarly, during a facelift a patient may have an implant placed on the chin to compliment neck liposuction or a necklift. The implant adds definition to the chin and separates it from the neck. This is an effective solution for patients concerned about a “double chin”
THE CHIN IMPLANT PROCEDURE
The chin implant procedure is performed in our private surgery center located in the Memorial City area of Houston, and anesthesia is administered by board-certified anesthesiologists. The surgeon will make a small incision under the chin, and insert the acrylic implant chosen by the patient and surgeon during a preoperative appointment. The length of surgery varies between 1-4 hours, depending on whether the chin augmentation is performed alone or in conjunction with another procedure.
