  4. CHIN AUGMENTATION

Chin Augmentation

Chin enhancement corrects the proportions of the face by adjusting the size, projection, shape and length of the chin. A small or weak chin can accentuate the size of the nose and make the neck appear fleshy. Projecting the recessed chin improves the sharpness of the jawline and aligns the edge of the chin with the nasal bridge. When the nose and chin complement each other in this way, a more balanced facial appearance is achieved.

If you feel as though your chin is not aesthetically proportioned in relation to the rest of your face, chin enhancement can create a more harmonious facial structure. At Eastern Plastic Surgery, we offer dermal filler enhancements as well as chin implants to improve the appearance of the chin. The method used will depend on your preference, expectations and features, and Dr Frank Lin can help you to determine which would work best for you.

CHIN AUGMENTATION METHODS

This operation is performed under general anaesthetic and the operation time is typically 3-4 hours.

  • Surgical method
  • At Eastern Plastic Surgery, we offer silicone implants and Gore-Tex implants for chin augmentation surgery. Silicone implants are used commonly around the world, and have a rubber-like consistency making them smooth and solid. When inserted into the implant pocket, these implants do not become attached to the surrounding chin tissue and so the procedure can be easily reversed. Gore-Tex implants are porous and allow tissue growth between the pores, securing the implant in place and conforming it to the body. These implants are more difficult to remove.

    As well as the type of implant, the size and shape of chin implants can be customised to each individual.

  • Non-surgical method
  • At Eastern Plastic Surgery we also utilise a range of macromolecular dermal fillers for the chin. For more information, please visit our non-surgical procedures (hyperlink).


Your safety is our main priority and every effort is made to your surgical safety. These include routine use of antibiotics, surgical stockings and calf compressors to reduce risks of blood clots, etc.

EXPECTED RECOVERY TIME FOR CHIN AUGMENTATION

Chin implant surgery has a relatively short recovery time. After the surgery, patients may experience slight bruising around the chin for a few days and some discomfort. Patients are expected to return to their regular activities after around 1-2 weeks following surgery. It is important to discuss individual circumstances and recovery timeframes with your surgeon.

ANY SURGICAL OR INVASIVE PROCEDURE CARRIES RISKS. BEFORE PROCEEDING, YOU SHOULD SEEK A SECOND OPINION FROM AN APPROPRIATELY QUALIFIED HEALTH PRACTITIONER.

FAQs

Who is suitable for chin-augmentation?

Candidates for this type of surgery can be:
o those who feel reduced self-confidence due to the appearance of their chin
o And, who meet certain conditions set by the medical profession, in order to achieve better results and patient safety.
What is the difference between dermal fillers for chin and chin implant surgery?

Chin implant surgery is a safe and frequently performed operation around the world. However, like all cosmetic surgery, complications can still occur even though they are rare. Complications may include infection, scarring of soft tissue and the body’s reaction to the implant itself.

Dermal fillers are in general a very safe treatment, especially with modern cannula techniques making it even safer than traditional sharp needle techniques.
Is chin augmentation surgery permanent?

Chin implant surgery is designed as a permanent procedure. It is important, however, that all patients are followed up in the long term as with all implant surgery. If the patient is not happy with the placement or for any other reason, surgeons can remove or move the chin implant.
Is chin implant surgery safe?

Like all cosmetic surgery, complications can still occur even though they are rare. It is therefore important that it is only performed by a fully qualified specialist plastic surgeon such as Dr Lin, who is trained to recognize and manage these problems if they do occur. Complications may include infection, scarring of soft tissue and the body’s reaction to the implant itself. Although rare, these issues are carefully discussed during a pre-surgery consultation with Dr Lin.
Can chin implants leak or move?

Chin implants are comprised of firm, solid substances (silicone or Gore-Tex), so they do not leak. There is extremely little chance that the implant will move from its position. A capsule will typically form around and immobilise a silicone implant, helping to maintain its position. A Gore-Tex implant will conform to its position through tissue growth between its pores.
Is chin implant surgery painful?

It is common for patients to experience some discomfort after any surgical procedure – this is dependent on the individual, and can be managed with pain medication.
Does chin augmentation improve the jawline?

Chin augmentation is a procedure that effectively improves the appearance of both the chin and the jaw. In fact, many patients choose to undergo the procedure because they are dissatisfied with the appearance of their side jaw profile. In some cases, the chin augmentation procedure is performed at the same time as corrective jaw surgery. This helps to improve facial symmetry and enhances the overall appearance of the facial features.
