About Chin Augmentation
Mentoplasty (also known as chin augmentation) is a common cosmetic treatment that recontours the chin and lower face for patients with a small or recessed chin. Often when a chin is recessed or sunken in, it can create a lack of profile definition. Cosmetic chin surgery can be performed to improve the appearance of your chin, and one of the most popular procedures is placing an implant to build a more prominent jawline and a more appealing profile. In Dallas, TX, double board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Masoud Saman offers several alternatives to consider for augmenting your chin. In addition to implants, which are produced in a number of sizes and shapes, noninvasive dermal fillers can help add contour. To learn more, schedule a chin augmentation consultation with Dr. Saman at DallasFaceDoc in Highland Park.
Chin and Cheek Enhancement Ideal Candidates
Chin augmentation with either an implant or dermal fillers is a great procedure for men and women who are bothered by a small or undefined chin. During your consultation, Dr. Saman will assess your chin, as well as your whole face so he can help you decide whether dermal fillers or an implant is your best option. It's also fairly common for patients to improve their chin size along with their nasal surgery for a balanced and aesthetic profile. This combination of a chin augmentation with rhinoplasty can provide dramatic improvements to your whole face once the central line is balanced.
Chin and Cheek Enhancement Surgical Technique
During chin augmentation surgery, general anesthesia or a form of sedation will be administered to keep you comfortable during the procedure. The incision is made beneath your chin and is very well hidden. The chin implant is placed through the incision and positioned on top of the bone where volume is needed. Sometimes the incision can be created inside the lower lip where it connects to your gumline. Incisions heal exceedingly well.
What to Expect with Chin and Cheek Enhancement
Chin augmentation with either an implant or dermal fillers produces some visible improvements right away. Once swelling and bruising subside, you will be able to better see your results. For the majority of patients undergoing implant placement, chin augmentation takes a couple of weeks of healing. Recovery is much with dermal fillers. Exercise and strenuous activities should be avoided until you get approval from Dr. Saman. Chin augmentation has very high success rates and by having it under the hands of a reputable surgeon, like Dr. Saman, your face will be balanced and better defined.

"I went to Dr Saman for surgical removal of my thyroid. While no one wants to go through surgery for cancer, Dr Saman and his staff made the experience as easy as possible and did a great job minimizing worries. There is always a ton of testing, coordination and review and his team did an amazing job. Highly recommended him for his surgical skill and his office for their prompt, efficient, quick assistance. After I heal from this surgery, I will gladly use him for his surgical skill in plastic surgery."- M.P. / Yelp / Jan 12, 2020
"I never write reviews, but I could not pass on an opportunity to express how amazing Dr. Saman and his team is. I've hated the shape of my nose since I was about 12 or 13. After doing lots of research on rhinoplasty, I felt that Dr. Saman was the perfect man for the job. I went to the consultation, and him and his team were so sweet and supportive. You can tell that they really care about your concerns and I immediately knew I was in good hands. The surgery is over now, and I am 100% satisfied with the results. I think Dr. Saman and his team were just as excited as me during the reveal. These people live to see their clients smile! I can't say enough good things. Amazing experience."- K.A. / Yelp / Jan 07, 2020
