About Chin Augmentation
Chin augmentation is a popular aesthetic treatment that reshapes the chin for individuals who have a recessed chin or one they believe is too large. Many times when a chin is too small, it can create a lack of profile definition. Cosmetic chin surgery can be performed to enhance your chin, but is it most effective when using silicone or polypropylene implants to remake a stronger jawline and a more defined profile. Dallas, TX plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Schwartz performs various options to consider for your chin augmentation. Aside from implants, which are produced in numerous sizes and shapes, nonsurgical treatments such as injectable fillers or Kybella can be used to reshape your chin. For oversized chins, genioplasty may be considered. This surgery at Robert Schwartz Plastic Surgery in Dallas, TX shaves and removes bone to reduce your chin and jaw to a smaller size.
Chin augmentation is a treatment for both women and men. If you are unhappy with the appearance of your chin and dislike the weak profile it creates, chin augmentation can redefine the overall look of your face. It is also common for some of our patients to combine rhinoplasty along with their chin augmentation treatment. This combined approach offers a great opportunity for the features of your face to be in line and balanced.
"I had the best experience working with Dr. Schwartz and his beautiful staff! I went in for my second breast augmentation to have my saline implants of 13 years removed and replaced with silicone. Upon meeting Dr. Schwartz, I knew immediately my search was over. He walked me through everything in detail, Listened to every question I had and truly wanted me to have the best experience and what I wanted within reason. From the moment I set foot in his surgery center the day of my surgery, I was greeted with smiles and I felt so comfortable, the nurses, Dr. Chang his anesthesiologist, PCD Laura, all of them, I knew I was in good hands! They look amazing now and I love them! Thank you Dr. Schwartz!"- Anonymous / RealSelf / Jul 03, 2019

"10 STARS at least. This doctor is absolutely amazing. Dallas is lucky to have a doctor of this caliber in the area. We spent months researching and speaking with several doctors in the area. My wife was extremely specific in exactly what she wanted. Dr. Schwartz and the staff spoke and met with her several times to ensure that she got the exact results that she expected. My wife was specifically detailed in her expectations and he has EXCEEDED them. The results are picture perfect and she feels FANTABULOUS.I put in a ton of research on this process. I read, reviewed, and watched it seems like a million articles or videos on day to day post op expectations. There are so many stories of girls having issues and pains during the first 7 days post op. I tell you from day one my wife had ZERO PAIN!.......I will say that again ZERO PAIN. We stuck to the medications down to the second and her recovery was pain free....THIS MAN/DOCTOR IS AN ABSOLUTE ROCKSTAR!!!!!!!!"- S.B. / Google / Feb 14, 2020
"I came to Dr Schwartz a very anxious and shy person and from my first consult to my 6 month post-op check in, I have never felt so comfortable and confident under any other medical professional. I’m short and shaped a little oddly, and expressed concern with having the volume I wanted without looking like a caricature. Dr Schwartz took my “dream boobies” photos and translated them to suit my body better than I could have anticipated. I look so much more balanced and proportional without a bra on, and I have never felt so confident in my own skin and motivated to take care of my body. I feel like my true self and I am still in absolute love with my new breasts. The entire staff is really friendly and easy to talk to, the drive to surgery was more stressful than the actual procedure because they took such excellent care of me. I fit in my clothes so much better, I walk with more confidence at work, and my boyfriend has noticed improvements in my posture and the frequency in which I smile in the mirror. Thank you so much for blessing my life with newfound confidence and pride in my body. I never thought I’d feel this good about my body but I’m so glad I researched, found an incredible board certified surgeon and took the plunge. I wouldn’t change a thing about my experience."- P.K. / Google / Feb 13, 2020

General anesthesia is used during chin augmentation, or IV sedation in some cases. An incision is first placed under your chin. Through this incision, a surgical pocket is formed to secure the implant in place, which includes shaving some of the bone to make grooves to keep your implant in position. The implant is inserted and positioned over the bone, below your bottom lip. Sometimes the incision can also be made inside the lip where it meets your gumline. Both incision points help to hide scars. Tiny stitches are used to safely close the incisions, and your lower face will be wrapped with medical garments.
What to Expect
Cosmetic chin surgery produces immediate visible outcomes, which is usually very exciting for our patients. Although facial swelling and bruising will occur right after your surgery, this is temporary. In most cases, chin augmentation roughly takes two weeks of recovery. Strenuous activity should be avoided during this time period. Chin augmentation has extremely high success rates and under the hands of a reputable surgeon like Dr. Schwartz, your outcome will look natural and proportionate.
