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
"Cristy is the best!!!! I’ve followed her from other offices as she is the only one who does my filler the way i want it. Id previously only done my lips and botox, but this past visit I also did Restylane under my eyes and Voluma in my cheeks! I LOVE IT SO MUCH. It’s made me a lot more confident in myself, and Cristy is such a perfectionist she makes sure it’s exactly what you want. I’ll never go anywhere else!!!"- L.M. / Google / Jan 03, 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.
