What Is a Chin Enhancement?

Double,Chin,Treatment.,Beautiful,Mature,Woman,Touching,Soft,Smooth,Skin Chin enhancement primarily enhances the appearance of the chin, but it can also improve the neck and jawline. This procedure usually consists of inserting a silicone implant around the chin bone or surgery, resulting in better balance with surrounding facial features like the nose and lips. A chin enhancement has an excellent track record for helping patients achieve their aesthetic goals.


The most noticeable benefit of chin enhancement is to add width and some length to the lower jawline, resulting in an attractive and well-balanced chin. This additional projection is typically used to improve a weak or recessed chin.


People who consider chin enhancement are typically unhappy with the projection or shape of their chin. This dissatisfaction is most often due to a narrow or under-projecting chin, which can lead to a loss of self-confidence. Good candidates for this procedure should also have a realistic expectation of the result they hope to achieve.


Plastic surgeons can augment the chin with either an implant or surgery. For an implant, the surgeon makes a small incision and places a synthetic implant through the incision. In the case of actual surgery, a variety of specific procedures exist, with a sliding genioplasty being one of the most aggressive options. This procedure involves cutting part of the chin bone and moving it to the desired location. An implant typically has a lower risk of complications and a faster recovery time than surgery.

What to Expect

Chin enhancement may use local anesthesia or general anesthesia, primarily depending on the patient’s comfort level. Either way, it’s an outpatient procedure that doesn’t require hospitalization. The surgeon may make incisions inside the mouth where the lower lip and gum meet or under the chin crease, depending on the procedure. Even in the case of surgery, the procedure takes less than an hour to complete and is often combined with other forms of plastic surgery.
