What is it?

Chin augmentation to address a “weak chin” can be a great choice for enhancing facial balance and harmony. During this surgery, our plastic surgeon will either insert an implant or move the existing bone forward to build up a receding chin. We may also recommend submental liposuction to remove excess fatty tissue to redefine the neckline and chin.

What will Dr. Kaye and I discuss during my consultation?

During your pre-surgical consultation, Dr. Mitchell Kaye will carefully examine your chin and jaw area to identify problems. We will consider factors that may impact the outcome of surgery, such as skin type, age, and attitudes toward surgery. We will explain the steps of the surgical procedure, along with reasonable projections. In certain cases, our plastic surgeon may suggest chin surgery as a supplement to rhinoplasty (nose surgery) because a small chin can make the nose look larger. We will also discuss any other recommended or desired procedures.

How long is the procedure?

The chin augmentation typically takes an hour to an hour and a half in surgery. The procedure is performed under deep sedation and thorough local anesthesia at our IMQ accredited cosmetic surgery center located at the Advanced Cosmetic Surgery Center of Kentucky. The patient is then discharged home, and recovery is quick.

How long will recovery take?

You should plan to be home for about one week after the procedure for recovery. During this time, it is best to have no work or social obligations to allow you to rest. Sutures are removed after one week, and most patients resume their normal daily activities and work after 7-10 days.
