What is Chin Augmentation?

The chin’s shape, size, and projection can significantly impact the appearance of the face as a whole and draw attention away from the other more pleasing features. A small, weak, or recessed chin can cause the nose to look oversized and the neck to appear fleshy. Chin augmentation is a cosmetic procedure to correct these imbalances and restore a harmonious and flattering profile. The most common solution is to insert an implant that reshapes the lower face. However, in rare cases, Dr. Locketz may elect to reposition the bone. Chin augmentation can be well-combined with rhinoplasty, chin and neck liposuction, or a neck lift.

What Type Of Implants Are Used?

Chin implants are typically made from soft, pliable, biocompatible compounds, including silicone and polyethylene. They come in a wide range of sizes and shapes so that each patient can obtain a customized, comfortable outcome that is aligned with their aesthetic sensibilities. Dr. Locketz will discuss your augmentation options with you in depth during your private consultation at our beautiful Denver offices.

What Can Chin Augmentation Accomplish?

  • Brings a recessed chin forward
  • Enhances the strength of the jawline
  • Creates more facial balance and harmony
  • Improves lower face definition
  • Enhances self-confidence
  • Acts as a counterweight to the nose

How Is Chin Augmentation Performed?

Chin augmentation is primarily performed by inserting a chin implant to enhance the shape and size of the existing jawbone. Dr. Locketz will create small incisions within the mouth or beneath the chin. In both cases, scarring is next to invisible after healing. Once the incision has been made, a small capsule is formed to house the implant. Once the implant is properly placed, incisions are closed with fine sutures. Dr. Locketz has multiple facial shaping techniques and options at his disposal. He may incorporate dermal fillers and injectables into your treatment plan, or he may perform sliding genioplasty to edge your jawbone forward.

What Can I Expect After Surgery?

Recovery can vary from patient to patient, as each treatment plan is unique. Each patient will receive personalized aftercare instructions that go over their individual healing process. Mild swelling is common for up to one week after surgery. You will be encouraged to stick with a soft/liquid diet at first to ensure your jaw heals properly. Dr. Locketz will provide prescription medications for a comfortable, stress-free recovery. 

Dr. Locketz's care does not end once you leave the office. Rather, he will schedule follow-up visits and call to check on your progress, answering any questions or concerns that may arise in detail. Chin augmentation has a high rate of patient success and satisfaction, and we are excited to help you get started on your cosmetic journey to enhanced self-confidence.
