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
