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.

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.

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

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.
