What Is Chin Augmentation?

Chin augmentation aims to restore facial harmony by giving the chin a more defined or prominent projection. Using a chin implant or injectable fillers, chin augmentation can offer some of the following cosmetic improvements:

  • Give an underdeveloped chin more definition or prominence
  • Lessen the appearance of a double chin resulting from a small or underprojected chin bone
  • Correct a weak, recessed, or asymmetrical chin
  • Enhance the neck, chin, and jawline contours

Chin Augmentation Benefits

  • Add definition to your jawline
  • Improve facial proportions, so the nose appears smaller
  • Long-lasting, natural-looking results
  • Boost your self-confidence

Am I a Candidate?

You may be a good candidate for our chin augmentation in Beverly Hills if you are in good physical health and would like to change the size, shape, or projection of your chin to create more definition, symmetry, and balance with the rest of your face. Dr. Sykes will thoroughly evaluate your facial structure and systematic health to determine your candidacy.

What Is the Procedure Like?

During your initial consultation, Dr. Sykes will determine the size, shape, and projection of the chin implant to best achieve your desired aesthetic. Every procedure is customized to meet the individual patient's needs so that you can count on a highly artistic approach using the safest, most advanced techniques.

Depending on your preference, Dr. Sykes performs chin augmentation under sedation or anesthesia. He will make an incision within the natural crease below the chin to ensure any scarring remains inconspicuous once healed. Dr. Sykes will insert your customized chin implant through the incision, then close the incision with sutures.

The Recovery Process

After your chin augmentation procedure, you can recover at home. Dr. Sykes will give you detailed aftercare instructions to ensure optimal healing. You may experience some bruising, swelling, and numbness in the chin and jaw area for the first few days. However, any swelling and discomfort can be alleviated by cold compresses and medication prescribed by Dr. Sykes. He may recommend a soft diet for the first few days of healing. To maximize your recovery, you must keep your head elevated while resting and avoid strenuous activities for the first few weeks. Most patients can resume work and other daily activities within two to three weeks.

Non-Surgical Chin Augmentation

For those who are not quite ready for a surgical chin augmentation, Dr. Sykes can use injectable dermal fillers to enhance the size and shape of your chin. Non-surgical chin augmentation allows you to experience a temporary, minimally invasive aesthetic enhancement while deciding whether a chin implant will be the right option. An injectable chin augmentation can last up to one or two years.

When Can I See the Results?

You will see a noticeable change to your jawline immediately after your chin augmentation procedure; however, residual swelling may take a few months to subside. After a few months, you will begin to see the final results of your chin augmentation. The chin implant will feel like your natural chin bone, and the results will complement your facial anatomy.
