Chin Augmentation

Chin Augmentation Atlanta

Chin Implant Surgery

Chin augmentation in Atlanta can provide patients with a well-defined jawline structure that will improve facial harmony and refine the contours of the chin and neck. By inserting a small implant around the existing chin structure, our talented facial plastic surgeons at Astra Plastic Surgery can help you achieve a more defined jawline. If you are bothered by the appearance of a small or recessed chin, chin augmentation may be right for you. Chin implant surgery is a long-lasting solution to improve a “weak” chin.

What Is Chin Augmentation?

Chin augmentation is a surgical procedure that can improve the facial profile and provide more definition to the neck and jawline. An under projected chin, also referred to as a “weak” or receding chin, occurs when the chin does not extend forward enough in relation to other facial features. This feature is most noticeable when someone is turned to the side. The appearance of a recessed chin can cause other features, such as the lips and nose, to look overly large in comparison.

At Astra Plastic Surgery, we offer chin augmentation surgery to correct a “weak” chin and help patients achieve facial harmony. During chin augmentation surgery, a small implant is placed under the skin on the chin to mimic natural bone structure and further project the chin. The implant is designed to sit directly on the existing chin bone, allowing the results to look natural. Chin implants are made from a soft material, often silicone, and come in a range of sizes and shapes to ensure the implant is suitable for the patient’s existing facial anatomy.

What Are The Benefits Of Chin Augmentation?

Chin augmentation can reshape or resize the chin to enhance facial harmony and combat the appearance of an under projected chin. The results of chin augmentation surgery are natural-looking and long-lasting. Chin augmentation can correct a lack of proportion between facial features and allow patients to discover a newfound sense of confidence.

Am I An Ideal Candidate For Chin Augmentation?

The ideal candidate for chin augmentation in Atlanta is in good general health and a non-smoker. It is important that candidates maintain realistic expectations for the results of their chin enhancement surgery. During your consultation for chin augmentation, Dr. Killingsworth and his team of plastic surgery professionals will review your facial anatomy, aesthetic goals, and medical history to help determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure.

If you struggle with a recessed or underdeveloped chin, lack of neck and jawline definition, or disproportionate features, chin augmentation surgery may be right for you. At Astra Plastic Surgery, we customize chin implant surgery to meet the specific needs of each individual patient.

What Should I Expect During Chin Augmentation?

Chin implant surgery can be performed under local or general anesthesia, depending on the extent of the case as well as the patient’s personal preference. Your facial plastic surgeon will begin by making a small incision on the chin. Our surgeons strategically place this incision in the natural contours of the chin or inside the mouth, allowing the scar to be undetectable once fully healed.

After making the initial incision, the implant can be placed under the surface of the skin. Chin implants are made from durable, yet flexible materials that have a similar feel to that of human tissue. They are available in a variety of shapes and sizes, allowing us to find the perfect fit. During your consultation, Dr. Killingsworth and his team will assist in picking the implant that will best complement the existing facial structure. After the implant is placed, the incision can be closed.

What Should I Expect After Chin Augmentation?

After chin implant surgery, a surgical dressing will be applied to the incision site to ensure it remains clean and can heal properly. Patients should expect to experience mild pain, bruising, tightness, and swelling after their procedure. However, these symptoms are normal and should subside in the days following the surgery. In some cases, patients may be required to avoid chewing and stick to a liquid diet to promote healing.

Before sending you home, Dr. Killingsworth and his team will provide detailed aftercare instructions for you to follow as you recover. In order to minimize the recovery period and maximize the results, patients should follow these instructions with care. Patients who have questions while recovering from chin augmentation are encouraged to call our office and our staff would be happy to advise.




What Results Should I Expect From Chin Augmentation?

During your consultation for chin augmentation in Atlanta, Dr. Killingsworth and his team will go over your expected results in detail. These results will differ depending on the anatomy of each individual patient, their aesthetic goals, their body’s natural healing response, and more. It is important to remember that no two patients will experience the same results.

Although patients may be able to notice a change in chin projection, most results will not be immediately visible due to the surgical dressing and potential swelling. However, as the body continues to heal, patients will begin to notice their results. In general, most swelling should subside within 6 weeks, revealing the final results. In some cases, residual swelling may occur for up to 3 months after surgery.

How Much Does Chin Augmentation In Atlanta Cost?

Astra Plastic Surgery offers chin augmentation surgery for patients seeking improved facial harmony. The cost of your chin implant surgery depends on a variety of factors. Because chin augmentation is considered a cosmetic procedure, it is not covered by insurance. We will provide you with the complete cost during your consultation. We accept payment by cash, personal check, credit card, CareCredit®, and Alphaeon® Credit financing.
