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.

"I was nervous for my consultation but they made me feel very comfortable. All of my questions were answered and I feel confident about my choice in implants! I’m excited for my surgery!"- L.H. / Google / May 20, 2023
"Dr. Courtney Caplin is truly amazing and has so much talent! CSA was the third cosmetic surgery facility I received a consult from as I had done extensive research on procedures and doctors in the OKC area and out of state. The entire process was so simple, I shared my insecurities with my consult nurse and what my goals were. She was very honest and gave me so much feedback, she was very attentive and truly listened to what I wanted. She made me feel so comfortable the entire time. I was given so much information and was sent home with information on their surgeons, I hands down chose Dr. Courtney, her credentials and stats are top notch and not to mention her belly buttons are the cutest!! I was scheduled within 8 weeks from my consult. CSA has many financing options and they were all very easy. Day of surgery I was very nervous, but the moment I went back everyone on my surgical team made me feel at ease. Recovery was so much easier than I expected, I had a full tummy tuck with a muscle repair and liposuction. The worst part was my back pain from being hunched over. During my recovery, my body rejected some of my sutures and naturally, I was freaking out, but CSA was incredible giving me proper wound care instructions and seeing my every week until I was over the hump of healing. Let me tell you, not all plastic surgeons are like that and I speak from experience from my breast reduction. I am about 15 weeks post op and I love my results already and wouldn’t change a thing. Their slogan of “Confidence is priceless”, couldn’t be more accurate. Thank you again Dr Courtney, you’ve given me so much!!!"- K.H. / Google / May 11, 2023

I never believed in any post recommending online trading until I gave it a try and the outcome was great for me. Making $10,500 out of $1000 was a whole lot of profit for me.

"I was surprised how quickly they could take me on as a patient. Financing the operation was a simple process. The surgery went well and the result looks nice, even better than I had imagined. I have a lower than average tolerance for pain and ended up needing more pain medication than is normally given for this procedure. Dr. Naveen was able to relieve my pain without having prescribe narcotics. I can return to work soon and I'm feeling so much more comfortable in my own skin and I don't have to focus on my loose, flabby areas anymore. It's hard to describe what a relief having this surgery is. Eventhough there is some pain involved, it was well worth it. Can't thank Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates enough for putting up with me. thank you! I'm very grateful!"- K.E. / Google / Apr 06, 2023
"From the moment I walked in and started my consultation, I felt so comfortable. Every single staff member I spoke to was kind and attentive. A breast augmentation consult has the potential to be a little awkward (so I experienced at a previous establishment), but not at CSA. I was able to comfortably discuss and show the surgeon and nurse what I wanted to achieve and ask all the questions. I schedule my surgery that day. Sarah, helped with the financing consult and was beyond supportive. Not only did she provide support before but evens two weeks post op she is answering all my questions. She is a truly wonderful person who was meant for that job and goes above and beyond. I chose Dr. kaplin to do my surgery and met with her right before because I had a change of mind and wanted to increase my implant size last minute. She was very open and helpful with this. I took in her advice and I was able to decide on what larger implant I wanted. She never made me feel like a pain and listened to what I wanted and gave me what I wanted. Looked through photos with me and discusses options. Post op, my results I am beyond happy with! It has been two weeks post op and I don’t have a single regret! There were so many Cheerful and great ladies, I can’t even name them all. Thank you so much CSA!"- C.R. / Google / Mar 14, 2023
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.
