Chin augmentation procedures have been around for years, and have been performed on countless patients as a way to revitalize one’s appearance and reduce the most prominent symptoms of aging on the face.
There are many reasons why a chin augmentation can make a positive change in your life. A chin augmentation procedure can correct a weak chin, balance your facial features and give you a more attractive appearance and a better overall profile.
It can also strengthen your jawline and counteract the effects of aging. For our patients in Beverly Hills chin augmentation can allow you to reshape your chin with either a chin implant or reduction surgery, whichever would suit you best.
Our Beverly Hills chin augmentation is a surgical procedure that improves the contours of the chin, jawline, and neck. An implant is placed around an existing chin bone to increase the size and shape of the chin and alter the underlying structure of the jaw resulting in more attractive facial proportions and a better balance between facial features. Specifically, Mentoplasty is the reduction of chin material and Genioplasty refers to the addition of material.
A chin augmentation at the Plastic Surgery Institute offers numerous benefits. There are several reasons why you might want to get a chin augmentation.
For our patients in Beverly Hills chin implant surgery can be performed with either general or local anesthesia with sedation. A small incision is made underneath the chin or inside the mouth to create space for the chin implant and make it fit around the chin bone.
The incision is closed with sutures. Chin implants are small devices made from a silicone type of biocompatible material that molds and fits around the chin bone. The jaw implants can vary in size and contour. After insertion, the implant will feel like a natural chin bone. Chin augmentation can be combined with rhinoplasty or neck liposuction.
Prior to their chin augmentation Beverly Hills patients should abstain from drinking and smoking because they increase the possibility of bruising and swelling. Any blood-thinning drugs (aspirin and NSAIDs), herbal supplements, and vitamin E should be stopped at least two weeks before surgery.
Plan on having someone drive you to and from the location of your surgery. Consider having a recovery kit prepared at home, including prescription drugs and antibiotics, and gauze bandages. Following your Beverly Hills chin implant surgery, you can expect to experience some swelling and pain in the chin area. Discomfort can be controlled with pain medication or cold compresses. And your chin may be bandaged.
After Chin Augmentation Beverly Hills patients can typically return to their normal activities within seven days. You may need to sleep face-up with your head elevated for at least a week and up to two weeks to decrease swelling. And you may have to consume a liquid-only diet for a day or two after your procedure. Avoid any strenuous activity for at least three weeks.
Non-surgical chin augmentation is a safe and non-invasive alternative to a traditional surgical procedure. Fillers are injected into specific areas of the chin to boost the length and width of the chin. Radiesse and Juvederm are two of the best examples of hyaluronic acid fillers that can enhance the appearance of your chin. These chin fillers can give you a chin projection with better definition.

Anyone in good overall physical health with a stable weight and a realistic expectation about this type of procedure is a good candidate for a Beverly Hills chin augmentation. You are a great candidate if you have an under projected, narrow or short chin looking for more length or defined structure more in proportion with the rest of your facial features.
Any major surgery involves some degree of risk. For chin augmentation, complications can include a bad reaction to anesthesia, bleeding, hematoma, infection, a shift in implant position, scarring, and swelling.
The incision for a chin implant is approximately 1.5 centimeters in length or smaller. When done appropriately, there should be no noticeable scar after the procedure.
The results of a chin augmentation procedure are permanent. The jaw implants are strong and durable medical devices. Unlike other facial procedures, your chin is not as affected by the aging process so the result of your chin implant will last for the rest of your life.
It can take several months for the swelling to subside and the results to be evident but the majority of the swelling should go away within a month.
The cost of a Beverly Hills chin augmentation surgery depends on many variables, including the experience of the surgeon. You want to make sure the surgeon is a board-certified Beverly Hills plastic surgeon who will listen to your concerns and explain how the procedure will benefit you.
The CareCredit program is an affordable healthcare financing program used by patients to deal with healthcare-related expenses. Many cosmetic surgery procedures are not covered by insurance and credit cards have high-interest rates so CareCredit is an alternative option, a line of credit that offers no interest if you pay the full payments.
There are several factors that affect the overall cost of a chin reduction, including anesthesia, the experience of the surgeon, and the location of the surgery. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of chin surgery was $2,364 in 2018 not including the other related expenses mentioned above.
Chin augmentation fillers like Radiesse and Juvederm can generate results that can last up to two years with touch-up treatments.
In 2018, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons said the average cost of cheek implants was $3,015, chin augmentation was $2,364 and lip augmentation (without injectable fillers) was $1,767. The average cost of a jaw implant can widely vary between $2,000 and $4,000 depending on the surgeon’s fee, anesthesia, operating room facilities, and other expenses.
According to the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, chin implants are “small, solid devices made from a biocompatible material, usually silicon, which has been molded to fit around a patient’s chin bone.” They can vary in size and contour and ultimately give you a natural-looking result.
