While many people barely notice the shape of their chin, people with a small or weak chin are often very aware of how it affects their appearance. Your chin plays a key role in balancing your facial features, especially your nose, for a harmonious profile. It also affects your self-esteem and how others perceive you. Chin augmentation can change your life in many ways, starting with an increase in your confidence. 

What is Chin Augmentation or Genioplasty?

Your lower jawbone determines most of your chin’s shape, although skin and soft tissue contribute to its appearance. Chin augmentation or genioplasty improves your chin’s shape and projection using a small silicone implant. Unlike a breast implant, which is a silicone shell filled with gel, the chin implant is solid but flexible, giving it a natural appearance and feel.

How is Chin Augmentation Performed?

Dr. Stein performs this procedure using local anesthesia and sedation, keeping you comfortable and relaxed throughout. He will insert the implant using a small incision hidden under the chin. The implant rests against the jawbone, preventing it from moving around and letting it look natural. Once in place, the implant is intended to remain there for a lifetime

Top 5 Benefits of Chin Augmentation

Many people who are bothered by the appearance of their chin do not realize how effective chin augmentation can be. This procedure has many benefits and relatively few risks. 

Better Projection

If your chin lacks projection, your lower face may look weak or receding. A chin implant adds a natural-looking projection that gives your profile more normal contours. 

Sculpted Neck and Jawline

A small chin can create the illusion of a double chin or give your neck an unflattering look. You may find that chin augmentation dramatically improves the contour of your jawline and slims your neck.

Facial Balance

If you feel like your nose looks too large for your face, your small chin may be creating that appearance. Your nose and chin naturally balance each other so that a chin implant can restore your proper proportions. 

Fast Recovery

You can expect some swelling after the procedure, but discomfort is usually minor. The biggest risk during recovery is accidentally moving your implant out of place. Most people are back to work in a week or less

Increased Confidence

Even if your chin does not affect how others perceive you, it can feel like it does. Chin augmentation boosts your confidence, and your strong chin can make you look more confident to others. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Chin Augmentation?

Chin augmentation is safe and effective, using the same medical implant technology used for other types of solid silicone implants throughout the body. Good candidates want to improve the appearance and projection of their chin and are in good health. Chin augmentation is not recommended for people with certain medical conditions.

Dr. Stein provided excellent outcomes. The resulted look natural and are consistent with what was explained before the surgery. I recommend Dr. Stein to everyone.
