Surgery of the Chin

The chin has a drastically important role in shaping our face. A prominent chin can enhance the jawline and improve the proportion of the face. Sometimes, these are performed together with rhinoplasties to achieve an even more satisfying result.

Chin Augmentation Surgery

Augmentation of the chin is the most requested procedure in this area. This procedure is done to improve the prominence of the chin, to reshape the chin and, as a secondary benefit, improve skin laxity in the chin and around the mouth. Men often request this procedure look more masculine.

This can be achieved with various methods including injectable fillers, fat grafting and chin implants. Chin implants can be made of Silastic, Gore-tex or Medpor and come in various shapes and sizes to achieve different specific results.

Injectable fillers can be placed in the clinic under topical anaesthesia. The procedure takes 30-45 minutes. Fat grafting can be done under local anaesthesia or intravenous sedation and takes 1-1.5 hours. Chin implants can be inserted as a day surgery under sedation or general anesthesia. The procedure takes 2 hours. There is 7 days of downtime as there is an obvious bandage over the chin for 7 days.
