Chin augmentation surgery is effective at altering the underlying structure of the face. The medical terms of the procedure is genioplasty and mentoplasty, which involves altering the size of the chin through various methods. Genioplasty uses grafted bone to enhance the shape of the chin and doesn't require an implant to be used to alter the profile. Chin augmentations that use implants are reversible and allow the implant to be removed, if necessary.

The procedure is effective at stretching the skin on the neck to create a slimmer appearance. Most implants that are used can last a lifetime and do not need to be altered or replaced.

The average cost of chin augmentation surgery is $4,575 in the U.S., UK, and Australia. Those who want to spend less money can choose to have the surgery performed in other countries and achieve the same results at a fraction of the cost.

How Does Chin Augmentation Surgery Work?

Local anesthesia or a numbing agent may be used during a chin augmentation. The physician will begin by making an incision in the mouth or under the chin. A pocket is then created in front of the chin bone where the implant is placed under the muscles. The plastic surgeon may choose to use real bone, fat tissue, a silicone implant, or newer biological inserts when reshaping the chin. If an implant is used, screws or sutures will attach the product to the bone to secure it and prevent it from shifting over time. Some bones may also need to be moved around to attain the desired results by cutting through the jaw bone with a chisel or saw. The jaw bone will then be moved and screwed or wired back into place by the medical professional.

Chin augmentation surgery take an average of one to three hours to perform. Patients may experience discomfort or soreness on the face following the surgery. Numbness may be present for one to three months. Swelling that develops will also subside after six weeks.

Many people are advised to consume a liquid diet or only eat soft foods to avoid discomfort and prevent the implant from shifting as the area heals. Patients can resume light activity the same day of the surgery. Rest is required in the week following the surgery for proper recovery and most patients can return to work after one week. The bandage will be removed a week after during a scheduled appointment at the medical offices. A brace will also need to be worn while sleeping for four to six weeks.
