What is Chin Augmentation?
Facial harmony can often be greatly improved by fixing a weak chin to create a stronger jawline and profile. Chin augmentation places a silicone chin implant that is carefully chosen by the cosmetic surgeons at Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates in Oklahoma City, OK, for the shape, size, and material that will best complement the patient's face. Jaw and chin enhancement is often combined with rhinoplasty (nose surgery) for subtle but impressive cosmetic improvements. During the patient's consultation, Dr. Erik Nuveen or Dr. Courtney Caplin will listen to the patient describe their concerns and goals before discussing options and creating a personalized treatment plan.

Who Is A Good Candidate For Chin Augmentation?
A chin implant, or augmentation, is a treatment for both men and women. If you are displeased by the look of your chin or do not like the current profile it offers, this treatment performed at Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates can redefine the lower section of your face and give you a new, striking look. Additionally, jaw and chin enhancement patients in Oklahoma City, OK are recommended to be physically healthy, at a stable weight, and have realistic expectations about their cosmetic jawline enhancement.
How Is Chin Augmentation Performed?
During chin augmentation, the implant is positioned over the bone below the lips. A pocket is created, which will hold the chin prosthesis in place. Sometimes the bone is shaved to create a groove for the implant. Incisions are commonly placed in two areas that can easily conceal scars – on the underside of the chin or inside the lip, just between where the lower lip meets the gum. The results after this procedure are almost always positive for patients. An experienced surgeon will create subtle yet dramatic enough results to make a significant improvement to a person’s self-esteem.
What Results Can I Expect from Chin Implants?
Chin implant surgery may use either local anesthesia or general anesthesia, depending on the surgical case. The procedure is performed in an accredited surgical facility. It may last up to two hours. A liquid diet is usually recommended during the first three days after the cosmetic jawline enhancement surgery to avoid any pressure around the chin as the sutures are sensitive until healed. The patient is allowed only light activities until the second week. There will be numbness in the area surrounding the implant. While this is normal, the sensation will gradually improve as the weeks pass. As with any implant surgery, it generally takes up to a full year for the chin prosthesis to settle into position and create an outcome that is soft, natural, and normal in feeling.
Chin Augmentation FAQ
How much does chin augmentation cost?
On average, the cost for chin augmentation surgery is $3,970 - $5,000. However, these fees are subject to change. No doctor/patient relationship is established until their exam. Consent in perpetuity until canceled in writing.
Will chin augmentation leave scars?
The incisions made during a jaw and chin enhancement procedure are placed inconspicuously within the inside of the lip or under the chin. Therefore, there is limited to no scarring that occurs with this procedure. The degree of chin augmentation scarring depends on the incision technique used. If the incisions were made inside your mouth, the scars will not be visible. If external incisions were made, they should be hidden under the chin.
How long does it take to perform chin augmentation?
Chin augmentation surgery from start to finish generally takes less than an hour.
Can chin implants be removed?
Yes. The implants are made of smooth silicone. They are not secured into the bone. Removal of the chin prosthesis can be done quite easily in the office under just local anesthesia.
