What is chin enhancement?

Surgical and non-surgical options available

The purpose of a chin enhancement is to improve the appearance of the chin as well as to define and contour the jawline. Surgical techniques to achieve a more visible and sculpted chin include bony chin surgery (Genioplasty) as well as the placement of a chin implant (Mentoplasty). A non-surgical option for chin enhancement uses dermal fillers to sculpt and contour the chin and jawline.

Am I a good candidate for a chin enhancement?

Ideal patients for a chin enhancement have no underlying dental issues but want a stronger, enhanced chin profile.

Whether you opt for chin fillers or chin enhancement surgery, it is essential you are in overall good health, and have realistic expectations for your results. At RENATA Facial Cosmetic Surgery in Brooklyn chin enhancement patients who have any underlying issues with their bite, speech, chewing ability, or significant facial asymmetry, will be evaluated for jaw deformity that may require more advanced evaluation and treatment. However, most patients qualify for a cosmetic chin enhancement procedure without further workup or referral to other specialists.

Chin Fillers

As an alternative to chin enhancing surgery, chin filler is a non-surgical option that offers more chin definition and facial balance with immediate results. For patients looking for a temporary or conservative option, this is an excellent treatment due to the flexibility of adding incremental amounts of filler to achieve just the right amount of enhancement.

Additional Reading

The chin filler is injected into the soft tissues under the skin and along the jawline. The treatment takes about 20 to 30 minutes, and results can be seen immediately. Chin fillers last between one to two years, and yearly touch-up treatments are required to maintain the desired look. This is an excellent way to “test-drive” the look of a chin enhancement before deciding on a more invasive surgery.

Chin Implant (Mentoplasty)

A chin implant is the most common surgical chin enhancement procedure and uses a uniquely selected size and shape of the material to augment and contour the chin. During surgery, an implant is inserted and secured along the bony chin.

Additional Reading

The surgical approach is most often through the skin in a natural crease beneath the chin. This helps to ensure an inconspicuous scar after healing. Using a chin implant, the jawline definition, chin size, and overall profile are significantly improved.

Bony Chin Surgery (Genioplasty)

The jawline refers to the anatomical mandible, or the lower jaw bone of the face. The mandible serves as the aesthetic basis of the chin and jawline. Each patient has a unique size and shape of the mandible, which is largely determined by family genetics. The mandible may be neutral, recessive (when the jaw is too retrusive), or prognathic (when the jaw is too protrusive).

Additional Reading

In addition to the mandible, the chin has its own relative position, be it neutral, recessive, or forward. Given the complexity of jawline anatomy, it is critical to consult with a facial surgeon highly experienced in skeletal facial analysis and soft tissue treatments. Genioplasty refers to surgical recontouring or repositioning of the bony chin. This can be performed through cuts in the bone or using a specialized drill to recontour the bony chin. When the bone is cut, a free portion can then be moved in three dimensions to reshape and resize the chin. This gives the surgeon flexibility to both enlarge or reduce the size of the chin, as well as to correct underlying asymmetry. Whenever bone is repositioned, the use of titanium plates and screws is required. Genioplasty surgery is performed from the inside of the lower lip, and there are no incisions along the skin.

Chin Enhancement Benefits

Dr. Khelemsky is your trusted resource for chin enhancement options.

Mentoplasty, or a chin implant, offers permanent results with a more balanced facial profile and a more sculpted transition from the chin to the neck. Jawline definition is also dramatically enhanced. The chin implant is selected to match each patient’s unique anatomy, ensuring a proper fit and appearance.

An additional benefit is that the incision is hidden beneath the chin and leads to minimal scarring. While not recommended, patients ask if the implant is reversible, and the answer is yes. The most popular type of chin implant is made from silicone material, which has an extensive track record of use and safety. Silicone implants can be removed in a quick, 30 minute office procedure.

Genioplasty (bony chin) surgery also offers permanent results that address complex anatomical situations, such as asymmetry or severe chin deformity. The chin can often be changed in multiple vectors, allowing it to be enlarged, reduced, or shortened. This procedure provides the most versatility in addressing chin concerns and is, for the most part, not reversible.

Chin dermal filler treatment is a relatively quick in-office treatment with little to no downtime. Dr. Khelemsky tailors the filler placement for optimal results. A single or series of treatments will achieve the desired outcome. The ideal solution is a gradual, rather than drastic, result. If for any reason you are not satisfied with the results, an additional benefit to chin filler is the ability to refine or even completely reverse it with an injectable medication called hyaluronidase.

Chin Enhancement Recovery

Your surgical chin enhancement is a one-hour outpatient procedure. However, this may vary depending on your specific treatment. The procedure can be performed in the office setting under local anesthesia or with sedation anesthesia. After surgery, a diet of soft foods is maintained for about one week to avoid pressure on the surgical area. A compressive tape bandage will be applied to the chin to help reduce swelling, which is removed after one week. Following chin enhancement Brooklyn patients need seven to ten days before returning to their daily routine due to minor swelling and bruising.

Chin Enhancement Results

After their chin enhancement Brooklyn patients will see immediate results, but will be fully realized once the swelling subsides. Chin dermal filler treatment is an in-office session that takes 20-30 minutes. Topical numbing cream may be applied, and patients return to daily activities immediately after treatment. You may need additional filler treatments to achieve the desired result. Dermal fillers used in the chin region have a longevity of about one to two years.

Frequently Asked Questions

Chin enhancement surgery is a safe and effective procedure, but some uncommon risks may include infection, swelling, bruising, implant shifting, or prolonged numbness to the lower lip and chin area. Dermal filler chin enhancement is also a well-tolerated and safe treatment. However, the most commonly encountered side effects include swelling, bruising, or temporary numbness along the chin. Allergic reaction to filler is highly unlikely, although this can be effectively treated.

The price of your procedure will vary depending on your treatment plan. During your consultation, Dr. Khelemsky and her team will discuss your options and cost to help you make an informed decision.
