What Are the Benefits of Chin Augmentation?
What Is the Chin Augmentation Process?
Addressing Your Concerns
As with any cosmetic surgery, please follow your surgeon’s post-operative care instructions carefully, take your medications and vitamins, eat and drink according to the directions, and stop tobacco usage. You may experience swelling and bruising for the first few weeks, as well as numbness for up to three months. Most patients resume working after one week. Your surgeon may advise sleeping face-up with your head elevated for the first one or two weeks, along with wearing a chin brace to help your tissues and implants heal in the best position possible and prevent shifting in the first few weeks of recuperation. Heavy, strenuous activities or exercise should be postponed until you have fully recovered, which may take up to four weeks.
Incisions are made in inconspicuous locations and are usually concealed by your natural chin contours. Most scars fade with time.
The individual cost of your procedure can vary depending on what the procedure entails and which techniques are utilized. After your initial consultation, Dr. Green can provide an accurate cost estimate.
Any discomfort associated with your recuperation can be alleviated with prescription medications and cold compresses.

Frequently Asked Questions
Am I an ideal candidate for chin augmentation?
Patients who are concerned with the appearance of their chin and are in good overall health may be a good candidate for this procedure. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Green to discuss your concerns, medical history, any medications you currently take, and what outcome you desire to see if chin augmentation is right for you.
Can I combine my chin augmentation with other procedures?
Chin augmentation surgery can be performed independently or in conjunction with rhinoplasty, a facelift, or other facial cosmetic surgery options. Discuss your preferences during your consultation with Dr. Green to see if combining procedures can benefit you.
How long does the procedure take?
Chin augmentation surgery takes approximately one hour to complete. If other procedures are combined with your chin augmentation, then the surgery time may take significantly longer.
How long do the results last?
Implants are considered a permanent solution to chin concerns.
Will it be obvious that I’ve had chin implants?
Dr. Green is dedicated to providing professional cosmetic surgery and only implants natural-looking synthetic material or bone and fat grafts that enhance the chin. Looking overly done is not the goal of this procedure, and Dr. Green can produce a natural improvement of the chin without an excessively protruding appearance.
