Chin Augmentation at South Coast Plastic Surgery
Do you have a small chin or a chin that doesn’t quite match your overall face? Then you might be a good candidate for Chin Augmentation at South Coast Plastic Surgery in Ladera, CA!
What is Chin Augmentation?
Chin augmentation is a surgical procedure that helps create facial balance by correcting a weak jawline with chin implants, filler or fat injection. Chin implants are made of silicone, which can be customized to your exact jawline. The implants act to supplement and add shape to the jawline, helping to bring about a more balanced and contoured jawline. Chin augmentation is a popular treatment option for men and women who may feel they have a “weaker” jawline. Sometimes people don’t want an implant, and filler or your own fat can be used to augment the chin.
How Does It Work?
Chin augmentation surgery can be performed under local anesthesia, which helps significantly cut down on recovery time. The surgery begins with a small incision being placed underneath the chin (don’t worry, it’s placed in such a way as to hide post-surgical scarring). The silicone implant is placed through the incision and adjusted to complement the jawline. The procedure – which usually takes less than an hour – ends with the small incision being sutured.
Filler or fat injections can be done under local as well.
Am I a Good Candidate For a Chin Augmentation?
You’re a good candidate for chin augmentation if you feel that your jawline doesn’t match your overall facial appearance. Some candidates describe themselves as having a “weak” jawline, so they want to achieve a more contoured and noticeable jawline. All candidates need to be healthy nonsmoking individuals who have realistic expectations for this procedure.
