If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your chin, there are options out there to help you get the jawline you’ve always wanted. Chin augmentation is a surgical procedure that can help augment your chin, thus creating the shape you’ve always wanted and helping you feel more confident about your appearance.
But how exactly is a chin augmentation done?
Chin Augmentation 101
Here’s what you need to know about how a chin augmentation is performed:
- Chin augmentation is usually performed under local anesthesia, although general anesthesia can be used in some cases.
- A small incision is made directly underneath the chin.
- The silicone implant is placed through the incision into the chin; the implant is small and flexible, which helps provide a more realistic appearance that’s tailored to your individual facial structure.
You should expect to take a few days off of work as your chin heals; final results are usually visible within six weeks after the procedure.
What to Expect During Your Chin Augmentation Consultation
The chin augmentation consultation is important for determining if you’re a good candidate for this procedure. During the consultation, you’ll meet with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Rudy Coscia, who will discuss the goals of your chin augmentation procedure. At this point, he’ll help you choose the right silicone implant based on your facial structure, which ensures you get the results you’re looking for.
