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.

What are the benefits of chin augmentation?

A recessed or weak chin can be a source of insecurity and can make you feel self-conscious about your profile. Chin augmentation can improve the appearance of a recessed chin, giving you a more balanced and aesthetic look. Dr. Cuzalina has helped many men and women achieve their desired appearance with this life-changing procedure.

Some benefits of chin augmentation include:

  • A more balanced and proportionate appearance
  • An improved jawline
  • A more defined and aesthetic profile
  • A more youthful look
  • Increased self-confidence and esteem

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.

Surgical Technique

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.

Chin Augmentation FAQ

Can chin augmentation improve my jawline?

One of the main targets of a chin augmentation with an implant is to define the chin — so it balances your profile and improves the aesthetic look of your jawline.

Does chin augmentation surgery hurt?

Dr. Cuzalina performs chin augmentation surgery with IV sedation or general anesthesia. During IV sedation, you will be given a sedative but remain awake with only minimal awareness and feel no pain. During general anesthesia, you are asleep for the entire procedure.

How long is recovery from chin augmentation surgery?

Typically, the recovery from chin implant surgery is about two weeks, during which time you typically will experience some swelling and bruising.

Does chin implant surgery leave a scar?

Dr. Cuzalina’s skill as a plastic surgeon allows him to make small incisions either under the chin to hide any possible scars or inside the lower lip near the gumline, which leaves no outside visible scar at all.
