What Is Chin Augmentation?

Chin augmentation is a surgical procedure to enhance and reshape the chin’s contours. It typically involves the placement of an implant or changing the shape of the bone. Chin augmentation aims to adjust and balance facial proportions, improving the symmetry of a patient’s face and increasing their confidence. 

Chin augmentation can address many different concerns. Dr. Hamwi can change the shape of the bone, or, he can insert implants to correct under-projection in weaker-looking chins. Other issues chin augmentation can adjust are:

  • Asymmetrical or underdeveloped areas
  • Malformation due to health conditions
  • Facial disproportion
  • Ill-defined neck and jawline
  • A double chin

What Chin Augmentation Options Can I Choose From?

Chin augmentation provides permanent results to alter your facial silhouette. At Florida Plastic Surgery, you can be confident that board-certified aesthetic plastic surgeon Dr. Hamwi will educate you about the best options for your unique situation.

Chin Implants

Chin implants are small devices made from biocompatible materials molded to fit around the chin. They can enlarge, reshape, or push forward the chin’s appearance. Implants vary in size and contour to ensure you will have natural-looking results.

You can also opt for non-surgical, non-permanent chin enhancement using dermal fillers.

Rhinoplasty and Chin Implants

The nose’s and chin’s appearance are closely related. When altering the nose’s shape and size with rhinoplasty, chin implants can also help enhance facial contouring and balance.

Neck Liposuction and Chin Implants

Many patients choose to have neck liposuction to remove fullness beneath the chin at the same time as inserting a chin implant. Together, these procedures strengthen jawline definition, improving facial and neck appearance.

Genioplasty

In performing genioplasty, Dr. Hamwi removes a piece of the chin bone and places it in other areas to correct chin deficiencies. He recommends this procedure for people whose chins are too far back, too far forward, or are too long in relation to the rest of their face.

What Are the Benefits of Chin Augmentation?

Chin augmentation provides permanent results to help you feel more confident in your appearance. While aging may affect your facial features in other ways, it won’t alter your newly contoured chin shape.

Whether you have a weak, undersized, or oversized chin, chin augmentation can help modify your facial silhouette with more pleasing proportions. Chin augmentation can help enhance or balance your natural contours while boosting self-esteem!

Sarasota, FL Chin Augmentation FAQs

Your chin augmentation will vary based on your individual needs and procedural plan.

  1. You’ll arrive approximately an hour before your scheduled surgery to meet with Dr. Hamwi and your anesthesia provider.
  2. After you are resting comfortably under anesthesia, Dr. Hamwi will proceed with your chin augmentation as determined during your consultation.
  3. For chin implants, Dr. Hamwi makes a small incision either inside the mouth or beneath the chin.
  4. After making the incision, Dr. Hamwi will create space for the implant and fit it around your chin bone. Small screws will hold the implant in place.
  5. For chin augmentations involving bone removal, Dr. Hamwi will cut out a wedge of your bone to adjust the positioning of your chin. He may reattach the bone with screws or metal plates, if necessary, to ensure it remains in place.
  6. After your chin augmentation, your surgeon will close and bandage the incisions. You may also need to wear compression bandages to minimize swelling.

Well-qualified chin augmentation patients in Sarasota include physically healthy men and women who are looking for permanent solutions to enhance their facial profiles. The best candidates are:

  • Non-smokers
  • Looking for a balanced profile
  • Bothered by the appearance of their chin or jawline
  • Seeking safe, effective, and long-lasting results

Most patients experience relatively little downtime after their chin augmentation procedures and can resume most activities within seven days following surgery. You may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort, which you can manage by taking pain medication or icing the area.

Swelling should subside approximately a month following surgery, and you’ll start noticing results. Your final outcome should appear roughly three months post-surgery.

It is essential to follow Dr. Hamwi’s care instructions to ensure safe healing and optimal results. These may include:

  • Following a soft food or liquid diet after surgery
  • Rinsing your mouth after meals
  • Sleeping face up with your head elevated for one to two weeks
  • No strenuous activity for approximately four weeks

Due to individual needs and aesthetic goals, chin augmentation procedures are highly customizable. Your treatment cost will vary based on your procedural plan. During your consultation, Dr. Hamwi will provide an accurate estimate for your chin augmentation in Sarasota.

Depending on the method used during your chin augmentation procedure, you may receive a prescription for pain medication. Be sure to discuss your concerns with Dr. Hamwi before your procedure.
