Chin augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that enhances facial balance and definition by reshaping the chin. Suited for individuals seeking improved facial harmony or a more prominent chin profile, Dr. Kuldeep Singh offers this surgery to elevate chin size, shape, and proportion.

Augment Your Chin:
Implants or Genioplasty

Chin augmentation is a cosmetic procedure aimed at enhancing the appearance of the chin to achieve better facial balance and definition. This can be accomplished through chin implants or sliding genioplasty, depending on the patient’s unique needs and preferences.

Chin Augmentation Treats:

  • Weak or receding chin
  • Lack of chin definition
  • Asymmetrical chin
  • Disproportionate facial features

Chin Augmentation Methods

Chin Implants

Chin augmentation with implants involves the surgical placement of silicone implants to increase chin projection. The surgeon makes a small incision beneath the chin or inside the mouth to create a pocket where the implant is inserted. The size and shape of the implant are carefully chosen to match the patient’s facial proportions and aesthetic goals. This procedure can help individuals with weak or receding chins achieve a more defined and harmonious facial profile.

Sliding Genioplasty

Sliding genioplasty is another approach to chin augmentation, often recommended for individuals with more complex chin issues, such as a severely recessed or asymmetrical chin. In this procedure, the surgeon makes cuts in the jawbone, repositions the chin forward, and secures it in the desired position with plates and screws. Sliding genioplasty allows for more precise adjustments and can address functional concerns and cosmetic improvements.

Benefits of Chin Augmentation:

  • Enhanced facial balance and symmetry
  • Improved chin projection and definition
  • Tailored to individual aesthetic goals
  • Versatile techniques to address various chin issues
  • Long-lasting results
  • Minimal scarring, especially when incisions are made inside the mouth
  • Can be combined with other facial procedures for comprehensive enhancement

Chin Augmentation FAQs

How long is the recovery period after chin augmentation?

Recovery time can vary but generally takes around 1 to 2 weeks. Swelling and bruising are common during the initial days, but most patients can return to regular activities within a week or two. Strenuous workouts should be avoided for at least four to six weeks.

Are there any risks associated with chin augmentation?

As with any surgery, there are risks involved, such as infection, scarring, and anesthesia-related complications. It’s crucial to discuss these risks with your surgeon, but skilled surgeons like Dr. Singh take all possible measures to mitigate these risks.

Will there be visible scars after chin augmentation?

If you opt for an intraoral approach (incisions inside the mouth), scarring will be minimal and hidden from view. However, external incisions may result in small scars under the chin, which usually fade over time. Dr. Singh will carefully evaluate your facial structure and select the appropriate surgical technique.

Is chin augmentation a painful procedure?

Most patients report mild to moderate discomfort rather than severe pain after chin augmentation. Pain management medications prescribed by your surgeon can help alleviate any discomfort during the initial recovery period.
