Chin Augmentation (Mentoplasty, with Implants and Injectable Fillers) – Las Vegas, NV

about chin augmentation

A chin that is too small or too large can negatively affect the proportion of the face and throw off facial harmony altogether. This can cause a lot of insecurity and can even lead to very low self-esteem. However, with chin augmentation surgery, your chin can be altered to a shape that is both flattering and complimentary to your existing profile. This can be achieved with implants or chin reduction surgery. Whichever route you choose, board-certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Frank L. Stile can create a custom treatment plan that addresses your specific concerns. At Stile Aesthetics in Las Vegas, NV, we want to educate and prepare our patients as much as possible. Therefore, we conduct a thorough examination and present before and after photos to patients who are interested in undergoing this procedure. Chin augmentation can also be combined with other facial surgeries such as a facelift or rhinoplasty.

ideal candidates

The best candidates for chin augmentation surgery:

  • Have a weak or short chin due to genetics or trauma
  • Have a nose that appears too large
  • Want a more proportionate look for facial balance
  • Want a more distinctive profile

what to expect

A patient will be under general anesthesia during chin surgery, which is performed as an outpatient procedure at an accredited surgical facility. The plastic surgeon will make a small incision on either inside of the mouth or under the chin. An implant, which is made of biocompatible, medical-grade materials, will be placed carefully into the incision. After the implant is placed, the incision will be closed. If the incision was made in the mouth, the patient will have no visible scarring. For incisions under the chin, the scar will be carefully hidden to avoid detection. The entire surgery takes around 1 hour to complete.

anticipated results

Right after chin augmentation surgery, a dressing will be applied to the chin where it should remain for 3 – 4 days. Patients can expect some pain, tenderness, and swelling. Also, patients can experience a tight, stretched sensation following surgery. These symptoms usually go away in about one week. After the swelling subsides in a few weeks, patients will be able to see the results of their surgery. The implant will look and feel like normal bone. More importantly, the implant will have the consistency of a patient’s natural tissue to make it appear more natural.
