What is Chin Augmentation?

Dallas or Austin chin augmentation patients who desire a chin implant are those with a small, retracted chin who have usually been bothered by it their entire life. For the most part, it is unrelated to how well the teeth fit together and is called microgenia.

Other terms you may have heard are micrognathia and retrognathia. Micrognathia means that the jaw is small and an overbite is present, and retrognathia means that the jaw is normal is size but set back also creating and overbite. In both of the latter cases, oral surgery is a better option so that the teeth are brought back into normal position. In the case of microgenia, augmenting the chin is a viable option since no work needs to be done on the teeth. A small chin can be repaired using multiple techniques with the most common being placement of a silicone chin implant.

Incisions are made inside the mouth to place the chin implant at the bottom edge of the jaw. Because the pocket made is just big enough to fit the implant, plates and screws are generally not needed. Another option for chin augmentation in Austin or Dallas is by making cuts in the bone to slide it forward (sliding genioplasty). This technique is more invasive and often unnecessary since modern chin implants are well-tolerated, have fewer risks, and has a much quicker recovery. A wide variety of shapes and sizes are available, and they can even be custom designed if needed.

What is recovery like after a chin implant?

After your Austin or Dallas chin implant is placed, the incision in the mouth is closed with dissolving sutures. While healing, instructions are given to use a special mouthwash to keep bacteria from collecting in the crevices of the mouth.

Brushing the teeth is allowed at any point as soon as it is comfortable. A compressive dressing is also placed around the chin and jaw for added support. This is kept on at all times during the first week and then only while at home the following week. It is normal to have some numbness on the chin, and it usually improves within two to six weeks. Rarely, a pocket of fluid or blood can accumulate alongside the chin implant. If this happens it can cause excess pain and swelling for a longer period of time. The fluid should be drained in the office immediately if this occurs.

Chin Augmentation FAQs

Chin augmentation is a commonly performed cosmetic procedure that has gained popularity in recent years. Many individuals seek chin augmentation to enhance their facial profile and achieve a more balanced appearance.

The level of discomfort experienced during chin augmentation can vary from person to person. Generally, local anesthesia is administered during a chin implant to minimize pain. Patients may experience some discomfort and swelling after the surgery, but it can be managed with pain medication prescribed by the surgeon or with over-the-counter medication.

Chin augmentation is considered a safe procedure when performed by a qualified and experienced surgeon. As with any surgical procedure, there are potential risks and complications, such as infection, bleeding, or adverse reactions to anesthesia. It is important to discuss the risks and benefits with a qualified plastic surgeon before undergoing chin augmentation.

Chin augmentation can provide long-lasting results, and in many cases, the results are considered permanent. The use of chin implants or bone-reshaping techniques can create a lasting change in the structure and appearance of the chin. However, individual factors, such as aging and natural changes in facial structure, may affect the long-term outcome. Follow-up sessions are not typically required unless complications arise, or the patient desires additional enhancements.

Yes, there are non-surgical options available for chin augmentation. These options often involve the use of injectable fillers, such as hyaluronic acid-based fillers, to enhance the chin's shape and projection. Non-surgical chin augmentation is a temporary solution, as the effects of the fillers usually last for several months to a year. Consultation with a qualified medical professional can help determine the most suitable option based on individual needs and goals.

The cost of chin augmentation can vary depending on various factors, including the surgeon's expertise, geographic location, the specific technique used, and any additional procedures performed in conjunction with chin augmentation. On average, the cost of chin augmentation can range from a few thousand dollars to several thousand dollars. It is important to consult with a plastic surgeon to receive an accurate cost estimate based on your individual circumstances.
