Chin Augmentation

Some people are born with naturally contoured faces, but many are not. However, that doesn’t mean you have to live with a chin profile that you don’t love. Chin augmentation allows men and women to achieve their ideal facial profile and enjoy long-term results. At South Bay Aesthetics Plastic Surgery Center in Torrance, CA, we customize treatments and procedures to help patients improve their chin profile.

Chin Augmentation

When it comes to chin augmentation, we know that patients have different concerns and goals, which is why we offer surgical and non-surgical treatment options. These treatments and procedures are designed to add projection or length to the chin.

We offer surgical chin implants for those looking for a permanent solution to improve the appearance of their chin. We also offer treatment plans that use dermal fillers to temporarily improve the appearance of the chin and deliver long-lasting results. Finally, we can use liposuction and fat grafting to naturally augment the chin.

Chin Implant

Chin implant surgery is a customizable procedure in which the surgeon helps patients choose the size and shape of a chin implant to improve facial aesthetics. During the procedure, Dr. Verbin will insert the right-sized implant beneath the tissue on the lower border of the mandibular synthesis, also known as the bony chin.

He may also cut, advance, and plate the bone to help patients reach their cosmetic goals. Chin implants are composed of a solid silicone structure and are typically inserted during the procedure through a very small incision hidden beneath the chin in a crease. The surgeon can also insert the chin implant through the inside of the lower lip.

Chin Augmentation With Liposuction and Fat Grafting

We can also enhance the appearance of the chin and create an improved chin profile with liposuction and fat grafting. One of the benefits of this technique is that it can improve two areas of the body during one procedure. The surgeon will work with the patient to determine donor areas from which he will remove the fat cells. The donor site is typically a problem area with stubborn fat cells, like the abdomen, hips, or thighs.

Chin Enhancement With Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are designed to inject natural and long-lasting volume below the skin’s surface to help patients combat the signs of aging or enhance different facial features. We can use dermal fillers for chin augmentation to create new facial contours and help patients achieve their aesthetic ideals.

During the treatment, we will inject hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers into the chin. We will make a series of injections around the treatment area to improve the chin profile and create a more contoured and sculpted appearance.

Choosing the Right Approach to Chin Augmentation

You may benefit from one of our surgical or non-surgical approaches to chin augmentation. If you want to improve the appearance of your chin, we can design the right treatment plan for you. The treatment process begins with an initial consultation at our office. We will explain the available treatment options, evaluate your chin profile, and determine which approach is right for you.

We will ask you some questions about your medical history, answer any questions about the treatments and procedures, and move forward with the treatment process. Depending on which approach you choose to improve your chin profile, we may provide you with pre-treatment or pre-surgical instructions to ensure the best outcome.

Frequently Asked Questions

Chin Implant

This procedure is the perfect solution for patients who want a permanent solution to improve the appearance of their chin. It provides a way for patients to balance the face and nose and also complements rhinoplasty. It can also help improve the appearance of the jawline by tightening the skin on the jowl region and the neck.

Chin Augmentation With Liposuction and Fat Grafting

The surgeon then uses liposuction to carefully remove unwanted fat cells from the donor site. After the procedure, those fat cells will be carefully sorted, and only healthy, viable cells will be prepared for fat grafting to augment the chin. The goal of this procedure is to remove living fat cells from one area of the body and graft them into the chin.

We use specialized, blunt fat-grafting needles to graft the fat into the chin to help you achieve your ideal appearance. Dr. Verbin performs this process with extreme precision to ensure the best fat graft survival rate.

Chin Enhancement With Dermal Fillers

Once you undergo treatment with dermal fillers to improve the appearance of your chin, you can expect both immediate and long-lasting results. It typically takes about a week for the final results to become more evident as the filler integrates within the skin.

Once it does, you can expect your results to last anywhere from six months to a year or longer based on how quickly your body metabolizes the product. Once this occurs, you can schedule a follow-up treatment to maintain your contoured and sculpted chin long-term.

Using dermal fillers to augment the chin is a good option for patients who are not ready to commit to a surgical procedure but want to create a more sculpted and defined chin profile. It’s important that patients are not currently nursing or pregnant at the time of treatment and that they are not allergic to any of the ingredients in the dermal filler used during treatment.
