Chin Enhancement is an excellent procedure for patients who have a weak jawline and need some profile balancing. Chin augmentation with a silicone implant can balance your profile, improve the jawline length, contour your jawline and diminish the appearance of a double chin. This procedure is performed under local anesthesia, and the incision will be placed under the chin and hidden away from plain sight.
BENEFITS OF A CHIN AUGMENTATION
TYPES OF CHIN ENHANCEMENTS

A silicone implant is often used for chin augmentation. Your surgeon will place a correctly sized and shaped implant through a small incision under your chin for a more balanced profile.
Another option to contour your chin is the use of Hyaluronic acid filler. Filler can be used to give your chin a little more definition without going through a procedure.
The third option for chin augmentation is fat grafting. Fat grafting is a surgical process in which fat is taken from one part of the body and injected into another part. During this procedure, liposuction will be performed to harvest fat from another location. The fat will then be injected into your chin creating a more proportionate chin appearance.
CHIN ENHANCEMENT RECOVERY
You will have sutures under the chin which will come out around days 7-10. You will likely have a little difficulty moving your lower lip normally due to the numbing solution and swelling. Generally, large dressings after surgery is not used but this is on a case-by-case basis.
With the use of a silicone implant, sutures are removed around week 1. Swelling is much improved but still moderate. Bruising is minimal. The improvement in the jawline, facial proportions, and profile are all visible.
The patient is picture-perfect. Additional jawline or neck interventions (filler along the jawline, neck lipo, etc) can be done at this point in time as most of the swelling from the chin augmentation with silicone implant has resolved.
