Your chin helps define the shape of your face, but a small or “weak” chin can make your lower face lack structure. Chin augmentation can give you a stronger, proportionate chin that helps shape your lower face. If the size or shape of your chin makes you self-conscious, a chin augmentation offers long-term enhancement. 

What is Genioplasty or Chin Augmentation?

Chin augmentation gives your chin a firmer, more prominent shape to balance your other features and improve the appearance of your lower face. A genioplasty or chin augmentation surgery uses a solid silicone implant placed inside your chin. By placing this implant under the muscle of your chin, the procedure ensures that it looks and feels completely natural. These durable implants can last a lifetime and may never need to be replaced.

How Much is Chin Augmentation?

The cost of chin augmentation varies between locations. You can expect a skilled and experienced provider to charge more for the procedure. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that the average cost of chin augmentation is $3,137. You can expect additional fees such as anesthesia, support garments, and other expenses. 

Why Do People Have Chin Augmentation?

People have chin augmentation for several reasons. They often want to improve their facial balance and achieve a stronger, more defined chin. However, chin augmentation has other benefits as well. You may have chin augmentation to enhance the results of a neck lift to improve the definition of the neck and jaw area. You may also combine a genioplasty with a rhinoplasty (nose surgery) to achieve facial symmetry and give you a stronger, more attractive profile. 

Chin augmentation also combines well with non-surgical procedures that reduce a double chin. A weak chin can hide the definition between chin and neck, making a double chin look more obvious. By removing excess fat and strengthening the shape of the chin, the area looks more sculpted and defined.

What is Recovery Like From Chin Augmentation?

You may have some soreness for two or three days after surgery. During this time, your surgeon may recommend a diet of liquids and soft foods. You can resume most of your usual activities within ten days. Swelling can take several months to resolve entirely. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Chin Augmentation?

If you feel like you have a weak or small chin, you may benefit from chin augmentation. Solid silicone implants are very safe and can last indefinitely. Ideal candidates are in good health and do not smoke or are willing to quit for several weeks before and after surgery.

I had breast augmentation done in November, it’s been 3 months, and I am loving the results. Dr. Sozer did an amazing job and the staff was very friendly.
