What Are the Benefits of Chin Augmentation?

An issue I sometimes hear from patients is that they feel their chin looks “too small” and/or “weak.” For individuals experiencing this concern, I often recommend chin augmentation as a procedure that can add volume while also enhancing facial harmony. Key benefits of chin augmentation can include:

  • An increase in the chin’s projection
  • An increase in the width of the chin
  • An increase in the vertical height of the chin
  • A decrease or elimination of chin dimpling
  • Concealment of jowls
  • An overall improvement of facial proportions

The two chin augmentation options offered at my practice are dermal fillers and chin implants. Enhancing the chin with dermal fillers can often be a great option for patients who desire a mild to moderate degree of augmentation. No surgery is required using this method, and results often last about six to nine months. For individuals seeking a more permanent solution, chin implants may be a better choice. Though this technique involves surgery, the procedure is relatively small and results can have a significant, long-term impact on the person’s appearance.

Regardless of the technique employed, chin augmentation can be easily combined with other procedures – including facelift, neck lift, mini-neck lift, and neck liposuction – for an improved overall outcome.
