Chin Augmentation Options

Chin Augmentation 

Is your chin receding from your jawline? Is it weak and recessive leading to a disproportionate facial look and structure? Weak chin that is not proportionate to the upper jaw is medically known as retruded chin. This can be corrected with plastic surgery by an experienced plastic surgeon.

Be prepared to discuss the pros and cons of various chin enhancement surgery options with your surgeon during your consultation. Board certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Kristi Hustak provides chin augmentation surgery to patients in Houston, Texas, and surrounding communities.

Surgical Options to Consider

The effects of a receding chin can now be reversed with various plastic surgery options. You can make your lower face appear more balanced and improve your overall facial structure significantly.

The most successful cosmetic surgery procedure for correcting a retruded chin is chin implants or chin augmentation plastic surgery. Chin implant is inserted by the female cosmetic surgeon through an incision in the mouth and does not cause any outer scarring. This is among the most common procedure for correcting the appearance of lower mandible or recessive chin.

Sliding chin genioplasty is usually recommended for extreme cases with severe retrogenia. This is when the chin structure and jawline are not defined to a significant extent. This procedure is highly invasive and involves a lengthy recovery period.

Sometimes, liposuction is used to reduce double chin fat. This helps in making the chin appear more protruded. In certain cases, Kybella injections may also be used for creating a stronger and more horizontal looking jawline.

An experienced cosmetic surgeon will identify your aesthetic goals and customize the procedure. Your surgeon will make sure that the best course of action is taken to match your anatomical and aesthetic requirements.

Chin Implant Customizations

Creating a customized chin implant will require multiple scans or imaging done by your female plastic surgeon. The surgeon will also have a detailed discussion about your aesthetic goals. Your chin implant will then be custom ordered or procured as pre-made prosthesis. This biocompatible silicone implant will be inserted by your surgeon in front of the lower jawbone for a stronger and shapelier chin.

There are other plastic surgery options available apart from chin implant augmentation procedures to enhance your jawline and lower face structure. You can even lengthen your jaw using special plastic surgery techniques. Neck lift, chin liposuction and several other plastic surgery procedures can be used separately or together with chin implants to get the desired results.

Advantages of Chin Augmentation Plastic Surgery

There is a misconception that simple mouth exercises can correct your jawline or a weak chin. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Your chin has soft facial tissue and rigid bone structure, which does not allow for any type of considerable change.

A chin implant plastic surgery can help you by:

  • Improving facial appearance from the sides and front
  • Strengthening the jawline
  • Improving your smile
  • Adding vertical balance to the face
  • Harmonizing the upper and lower jaws for proportionate facial balance

Butt Augmentation Plastic Surgery

Butt Augmentation

Butt augmentation is a cosmetic surgery procedure gaining steady popularity worldwide over the last decade. It involves reshaping and enhancement of your gluteal area resulting in a shapelier buttock contour.

Firmly rounded buttocks are viewed as a symbol of both sensuality and feminism. The most common technique for buttock augmentation for either enlargement or reshaping is through fat grafting also known as the “Brazilian Butt”. The other popular buttock augmentation surgery technique is buttock implants.

Board certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Kristi Hustak provides butt augmentation surgery to patients in Houston, Texas, and surrounding locations.

Ideal Candidates for Buttock Augmentation

You should think of getting a butt augmentation procedure in the following situations:

  • If your body structure is bigger than your buttocks and you want a more even look
  • When your gluteal region looks boxy or too flat
  • If your buttocks are slack, flat, or sagging because of aging or weight loss
  • If you feel that your figure does not flaunt the clothes and swimwear properly
  • To improve your self-esteem and confidence

Advantages of Butt Augmentation

Top benefits of a butt enhancement procedure:

  • Shapelier and attractive figure
  • Better fit for clothes, especially swimwear
  • More curvaceous and youthful look

Methods of Buttock Augmentation

Buttock augmentation is a cosmetic surgery procedure that is primarily performed through autologous fat transfer or gluteal implant surgery.

Autologous Fat Transfer

This is popularly known as the “Brazilian Butt Lift”. The female cosmetic surgeon uses your fatty tissues to augment the shape and design of your buttocks giving it a better more rounded look.

This cosmetic surgery involves liposuction. Suction tubes or “cannulas” are used to remove fatty tissues from abdomen, thighs, and hips. The cosmetic surgeon then injects this fat via syringes attached to the cannulas. Three to five small incisions are made for the fat reinjection, but these are easily hidden.

The cannulas move back and forth constantly ensuring an even fat deposit at multiple levels to redesign the buttocks. Your surgeon will use sutures to close the incisions.

Gluteal Implant Surgery

This type of plastic surgery can be performed without reassigning fat. The procedure involves butt implants for providing shape. This is more suitable for flat or depressed buttock shapes. They work well for people with less fatty tissues. However, they are not as effective in enhancing sagging rear ends due to significant weight reduction.

In this plastic surgery procedure, the female plastic surgeon will insert a soft silicone implant in your buttocks with the help of a small incision masked by your buttock crease. A different incision site can also be used, and the relevant details will be provided by your plastic surgeon during the consultation.

The implant is situated below your gluteal muscle but above your pelvic bone. After the plastic surgery is complete sutures are used to close the incisions made. You will be required to wear a compression garment after the surgery. Female cosmetic surgeon Dr. Kristi Hustak receives patients from Houston, Texas, and nearby areas for butt augmentation surgery.

How Do Chin Implants Appear?

Chin implants are solid devices created from silicone or any other biocompatible material. Your female cosmetic surgeon will have the implant molded to fit perfectly around your chin bone. Chin implants differ in contour and size. Your surgeon will help you choose the best implant to provide natural looking results while achieving the desired level of enhancement.

Chin implants are solid in structure and feel similar to the natural chin bone. It is typically impossible to notice this surgery when performed by an experienced plastic surgeon.

What Does Chin Implant Surgery Involve?

The surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure under local or general anesthesia. Your surgeon will place a small and discreet incision inside your mouth or underneath the chin. A space will be created through this incision for the chin implant, which will be molded to your chin bone.

The surgery usually takes about an hour. However, it may take longer if you are having other additional procedures performed as well. Incisions are closed using sutures following the surgery and the sutures may be wrapped in bandages.

Chin Implant Surgery Recovery

This procedure involves quick recovery for most patients. You may be back at your desk within a week of the surgery. Any pain or discomfort is usually minimal and easily treatable by cold compresses or medication. You should avoid strenuous activities and exercises for about three to four weeks after your surgery.

Results of Chin Implant Surgery

Chin implants are solid, durable medical devices. They are designed to be permanent. Your enhanced chin contour will not be affected by natural aging process. However, extensive trauma to the face can damage an implant and you may require a replacement surgery.
