What is chin augmentation?

Chin enhancement surgery can dramatically enhance the contours of the chin, neck, and jawline. This surgery typically includes the placement of an implant over the existing jawbone to augment size and shape or to create an ideal balance between the forehead and facial features. Patients who choose to undergo chin enhancement may not only improve their physical appearance through this procedure but also enjoy newfound self-confidence. 

What can chin augmentation address?

Combined with procedures such as a rhinoplasty or facelift, chin augmentation can result in a beautiful and natural-looking appearance, enhancing the harmony of your facial features. It is an invaluable procedure for creating a symmetrical aesthetic to rejuvenate your entire appearance.

What are the benefits of chin augmentation?

For those who feel their facial features are unbalanced or have a recessed or smaller chin, chin implant surgery can be a great way to gain greater confidence. It provides several benefits: 

  • It can improve facial harmony by creating better proportions among facial features.
  • It can correct a weak or receding chin.
  • It can create a sculpted, refined definition of the neck and jawline.
  • It can reduce the appearance of a double chin or sloping chin associated with a smaller or recessed chin structure.

Who is a candidate for chin augmentation?

This procedure is especially beneficial in cases where the chin appears too small or flat compared to other facial features such as the brow, nose, and cheekbones. Ideal candidates should meet the following requirements:

  • Are generally in good health 
  • Do not smoke
  • Have realistic expectations for their chin augmentation 
  • The face and skull are fully matured 
  • Have a healthy skin tone in the treatment area

Overall, it’s important to note that the goal of this procedure is to create a natural look. Under the care of Dr. Vila, with your chin augmentation in Portland, you can enjoy life with greater confidence in your look, with an outcome that appears natural.

What is the procedure for chin augmentation?

The procedure involves making an incision in the chin underneath the bone. Insertion of the implant, often manufactured from silicone, into the pocket creates a more prominent chin with increased strength and definition. Patients generally report minimal discomfort for a short time after surgery.

What is the recovery for chin augmentation?

After chin implant surgery, you will need to sleep on your back, with your head elevated, for at least one or two weeks after surgery to control post-op swelling and help the incision heal. To ensure optimal results, it is critical to adhere to the instructions from Dr. Vila regarding when strenuous activity can be resumed; this is typically two weeks post-surgery.
