About Chin Augmentation
Known as chin augmentation, mentoplasty, is a highly sought after aesthetic treatment that improves the look of the chin and lower part of the face. Often when a chin is too small, it may look disproportionate to the rest of your facial features. At Tulsa Surgical Arts in OK, Dr. Angelo Cuzalina inserts an implant to create a more prominent jawline and a more appealing profile. In addition to implants, Dr. Cuzalina offers noninvasive treatment options, such as injectable dermal fillers or KYBELLA. For a more defined profile and proportionate chin, we encourage you to call our office and learn more about chin augmentation with implants or noninvasive treatments.

Is Chin Augmentation Right For You?
Chin augmentation can help both men and women attain a more defined profile. If you feel self-conscious because of the appearance of your chin or you dislike your profile, a chin implant can redefine the lower part of your face. Often, patients combine chin augmentation with other treatments, such as rhinoplasty or facial liposuction. These treatments can enhance your chin augmentation results. Because a less prominent chin may occur with aging, chin implants can also greatly improve the results of a facelift. By combining these types of treatments, patients can balance the beautiful features of their faces.
During your procedure, Dr. Cuzalina will administer general anesthesia or IV sedation. To start your surgery, he makes an incision underneath your chin. Next, a surgical pocket is created to keep the implant in its proper place. This process involves shaving some of the tissue, cartilage, and bone to create grooves, which securely holds your implant in place. Directly below your bottom lip, we insert the implant through the incision and position it on top of the bone. In some cases, the incision is made inside the lower lip near your gumline. Both incision types help to hide your scars. Dr. Cuzalina uses tiny stitches to connect and close the incisions, and your chin is wrapped with bandages.
What to Expect
Chin augmentation creates immediate results, which is very exciting for our patients. Even though you experience some swelling and bruising, these side effects will start to subside within the first two weeks. Additionally, in some cases, patients may need to wear a tape of elastic dressing for a period of time. Generally, chin augmentation requires about two weeks of recovery time. During this time, patients should avoid strenuous activities, like exercise. Chin augmentation has extremely high success rates, and with an experienced and skilled cosmetic surgeon, like Dr. Cuzalina, your results will look natural and proportionate.
