Chin Augmentation Surgery: What is it?
Chin augmentation is a surgical procedure that enhances the size of the chin or reshapes the chin bone and jawline. Often, a plastic surgeon will place an implant during the augmentation surgery to increase the size of the chin. In some cases, the surgeon might change the chin by reshaping the jawbone.
What are the reasons for undergoing Chin Implant Surgery?
You might decide to have chin surgery for a variety of reasons. In some instances, a plastic surgeon will augment the chin with an implant during rhinoplasty to change the size and shape of the patient’s nose. Increasing the chin’s size while reshaping the nose can dramatically improve overall facial structure.
If you want to enhance your profile – if you want your chin to be more prominent, for example, or want to strengthen your jawline – chin surgery can help.
If you’re not sure whether your face could benefit from a chin implant, we have listed below a few reasons some people consider this surgery.

What Types of Implants are Used for Chin Augmentation?
The implants are typically made of silicone. Silicone implants are usually soft and flexible. The exact type of chin implant Dr. Salloum will use during the surgery will depend on your goals and the structure of your face.
Facial implants are available in a range of shapes and sizes. During your consultation, Dr. Salloum will discuss your expectations and overall goals with you to help determine which implant option is best.
Good Candidate for Chin Augmentation
Some people are better candidates for chin implants than others. Many people with recessed chins or noses that look too large are good candidates for surgery.
To be an ideal candidate for surgery, you should be in good health. During your consultation, Dr. Salloum will ask about your medical history and whether you are being treated for any conditions at the moment. If you have a chronic condition that is well-managed, you might still be a candidate for surgery.
Your lifestyle can also influence your candidacy for chin surgery in Miami. The ideal surgical candidate will be a non-smoker. If you do smoke, you’ll be asked to stop using tobacco products at least a few weeks before the scheduled surgery. It’s also a good idea to continue to avoid using nicotine or tobacco for several weeks after your procedure to prevent complications and encourage proper healing.
Having realistic expectations about the procedure is also important. A consultation with Dr. Salloum before surgery will help you get a better understanding of what the surgery can do for you. Your consultation can also help you see if the surgery will help you reach your aesthetic goals. If not, you might be a candidate for another surgical procedure.

The initial consultation is a vital part of the surgical process at the Miami Center for Plastic Surgery. When you come in for your consultation, you’ll be escorted to a large, well-appointed room. Our practice also offers free valet parking to make getting to your consultation even more convenient.

Chin Augmentation Before and After Pictures
*All patients are unique and individual results may vary.
Preparing for Chin Implant Surgery
What you’ll need to do to get ready for chin implant surgery depends on your current lifestyle and habits. Dr. Salloum will let you know if there are any activities to avoid in the days before your surgery. You may also be told to stop taking certain medications or supplements. For example, some types of OTC painkillers and prescription medicines thin the blood and should be avoided for a couple of weeks before and after surgery.
You might also want to prepare your home for the recovery after chin implant surgery. Stock up on groceries or arrange to have meals delivered. Request time off from work and schedule childcare if you need it. Since you’ll have a few days of downtime, stock up on quiet things to do, such as books to read or movies to watch.
Since you’ll need to have someone drive you to and from your surgery, it’s a good idea to make arrangements in advance.
Understanding the Chin Implant Procedure
The procedure is generally short, taking about an hour or less. On the day of the surgery, you’ll be given an anesthetic to numb the area or to put you to sleep. Dr. Salloum will make a small incision either underneath your chin or inside your mouth and create a pocket in the chin to hold the implant.
Next, he’ll position the implant in the appropriate area. He might use screws or stitches to hold the implant in place while you heal. After the implant is placed, Dr. Salloum will close the incision with stitches. Patients typically go home on the day of their surgery.
Recovery after Chin Augmentation Surgery
If possible, someone should stay with you overnight after your chin surgery. It’s important to drink plenty of water and take it easy during the first couple of days after surgery.
Your chin is likely to feel sore for a few weeks after you get a chin implant. It’s usually a good idea to stick to liquids or soft foods during the first day or two. To avoid putting pressure on the chin as it heals, try to sleep on your back and avoid any positions that would put weight on the area.
Dr. Salloum can prescribe pain medications to help ease any discomfort you feel immediately after your surgery. Take the pain medication as directed and only take medicine prescribed by your surgeon as you recover.
Usually, you’ll be able to get back to most of your regular activities within a week or two. You might have some lingering swelling or bruising during the first few months before the final results appear.
Are There Risks to Chin Augmentation?
Every type of surgery involves some risk. The most common side effects after chin surgery include bruising and swelling in the area near the implant. There’s also a chance that the implant will move if it isn’t secured in place over the chin bone.
Less common risks after chin surgery include a loss of sensation in the area or damage to the teeth or bite. To minimize the chance of any dental changes following the placement of a chin implant, Dr. Salloum will examine your dental occlusion before surgery.
Following all instructions from your doctor before and after surgery and letting your surgeon know about any medical concerns or lifestyle issues will help to reduce the risk of side effects or complications from chin surgery.
