Our jawline sends a message. There is no denying that a certain jaw structure and chin shape can lend you a balanced and attractive face. At Linville Plastic Surgery, we provide an aesthetically harmonious chin augmentation procedure in Houston and the surrounding areas.
Dr. Linville understands the importance of loving your facial aesthetic. That is why he uses his eye for beauty and skill as a surgeon to deliver chin augmentation results that enhance your confidence in your appearance.
What Is a Chin Augmentation?
A weak or recessed chin is not something you have to live with. A simple chin augmentation with either a long-acting filler or with small chin implants can restore harmony to your face, often without any visible scar. The result will be subtle and natural, but your confidence will be restored with this facial rejuvenation procedure.
Chin augmentation improves the contours of your jawline, neck, and chin. Most often, it involves placing an implant or fillers around your existing chin bone to augment its size and shape to match your goals.
Is a Chin Augmentation Right For Me?
If you are dissatisfied with the shape or form of your chin, then chin augmentation could benefit you. Some of the main reasons patients seek chin augmentation include:
- Desire to achieve facial harmony with a proportionate chin
- Enhance or correct a weak or recessed chin
- Strengthen definition of your jawline
- Reduce a “double” chin from a small chin bone
One of the benefits of chin augmentation is that it can adapt to meet your needs. Some patients may only require a few injectable fillers to achieve their desired shape. While other patients might choose to have a small implant.
During your consultation with Dr. Linville, he will go over all your options. After listening to your goals, he will develop a treatment plan that meets your aesthetic expectations.
For patients who want to avoid surgery and any downtime, injectable fillers can enhance your chin shape. This style of chin augmentation is safe, convenient, and provides stunning results. Treatment sessions are incredibly quick, and there is no downtime afterward. Instead, you can return to your daily life almost immediately, ready to show off your new look to the world.
Dermal fillers are not a permanent solution, and touchup sessions will be needed after several months to a year. However, many patients see these as opportunities to further personalize their look with small adjustments.
Surgical Chin Augmentation
Using only a small incision, Dr. Linvill can install an implant that enhances your law structure. Most patients will be out of the office in about an hour and can return home the same day.
Dr. Linville strategically and carefully makes the incision so that there is little to no visible scarring after. Some patients prefer general anesthesia. However, this procedure can also be done with only local anesthesia and sedation. Dr. Linville will work with you to determine which option is best for you. Our goal is for you to have a comfortable and relaxing experience every step of the way.
Recovery After Chin Augmentation
For injections, there is only minor swelling or discomfort for a day or two at most. Most patients will be able to return to their daily routine immediately. However, some prefer to take a day off to relax as the swelling goes down. But, you will see immediate results!
For a surgical chin augmentation, you can expect to still have minimal downtime. Most patients return to daily activities within a week.
However, during recovery, it will be important to follow post-op instructions provided by Dr. Linville. Doing so will ensure optimal results that stay with you for years to come.
After about one month, you should see close to final results. And after three months, your final results will have fully settled.
Combine Chin Augmentation With Other Procedures
Two popular procedures often combined with chin augmentation include:
When combined with a chin augmentation, these surgeries both help to enhance the results of each other. During your consultation, Dr. Linville will help you decide if you could benefit from multiple procedures.
