Patients with a weak or small chin often choose to have a chin augmentation to enhance facial symmetry and balance. Layton Aesthetic Plastic Surgery offers this simple procedure to residents of Houston, San Antonio, Sugar Land, and the neighboring cities of Texas.
What is a Chin Augmentation?
Chin augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that is becoming increasingly popular. A chin augmentation increases the height and projection of the chin to make it more proportionate to other facial features, enhancing overall facial balance. At Layton Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, we perform chin augmentations using silicone rubber implants. These implants come in a variety of shapes in sizes so that we can provide the ideal results for each patient’s needs.
How Much Does a Chin Augmentation Cost?
The cost of a chin augmentation can range from $5,100 to $5,200 depending on the extent of treatment necessary to produce your desired results. During your consultation, Dr. Layton will be able to provide you with a treatment plan that matches your specific needs. At this point, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of your treatment. We also offer financing services to help make this and other treatments more affordable.
What is the Chin Augmentation Procedure Like?
Chin augmentation is performed under general anesthesia and usually takes an hour to complete. During the procedure, an incision is made either underneath the chin or on the inside of the mouth. This results in scarring that is virtually invisible. Through the incision, the implant will be placed on top of and secured to the lower jaw bone. Once secured, the chin implant will look and feel like your natural chin.
What is Recovery Like Following a Chin Augmentation?
After the chin augmentation surgery, we will apply a bandage to the chin that will be worn for a few days. Pain is usually minimal, but patients can expect some tenderness and swelling over the first several days. It is also common for the chin to feel tight as the skin adjusts to the size of the implant, but this feeling typically fades in about a week.
