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.
  • The incision is closed.

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.

I had an incredibly positive experience with Doctor Coscia. He was always right on time, and I always felt like he took ample time with me pre-surgery and post-op. He answered all of my questions professionally, and was always open to discussing the possible emotional effects of the surgery. He was wonderful, and I would recommend him to everyone!
