Chin Augmentation Specialist
Serving Stockbridge, GA & the Atlanta Metropolitan Area
A weak chin or one that is asymmetrical can make you feel self-conscious and unhappy with your appearance. Chin augmentation can address these concerns, as well as birth defects or effects of traumatic injuries that altered the shape of your chin. The Georgia Center for Ear, Nose, Throat and Facial Plastic Surgery can help you get a chin that flatters your face and general appearance.
Dr. Aaron Fletcher, Board Certified, Otolaryngologist—Head and Neck Surgeon will discuss your specific facial enhancement goals and which type of chin augmentation procedure will best achieve your goals based on the shape of your face.
Dr. Fletcher will inform you of your options, including silicone chin implants, sliding genioplasty, or the advanced facial filler, Juvéderm Voluma® XC for chin augmentation.
Who is a Candidate for Chin Augmentation?
Dr. Fletcher advises patients that they may be a good candidate for chin augmentation if there is a desire to add shape to your chin. A chin augmentation will improve your facial profile by adding definition.
Some patients may select complimentary procedures to achieve their overall facial reshaping and renewal goals. These procedures include:
- Fat grafting or facial liposculpture
- Cheek augmentation / augmentation
- Lip augmentation with fillers
During your consultation with Dr. Fletcher, he will discuss your concerns and recommend the best chin implant and/or other facial surgical or non-surgical procedures that can best address your goals.
How is Chin Augmentation Surgery Performed and What is the Recovery Time and Expected Results?
Your consultation starts with discussing your goals for the chin augmentation.
Silicone implants can make your chin more prominent. Sliding genioplasty, or chin advancement, is another option for making your chin larger. It involves no implants. Instead, a piece of bone is taken from your lower jaw and reattached further forward. The operation can take one to two hours, and you will have light sleep or general anesthesia.
The sutures are removed in less than a week. Swelling and pain can last for two weeks, and you may need to eat a soft foods diet. You should be able to return to work after a week, and get back to most other activities within two weeks.*
Your chin will look bigger directly following surgery due to the swelling. Once the swelling subsides, your chin should look just as you desired. A chin implant from silicone can last your whole life. There is a small chance that you would need revision surgery if you have implant shifting.*
