Symmetry and well-balanced proportions of the face have been known for centuries by master artists and sculptors to be the source of physical beauty. One of the strongest features of the face is the chin. If it is receding, overlarge, or over projecting, the chin can severely detract from your natural beauty. The right shape and size of the chin structure will enhance your other features for a balanced harmony.

What is chin augmentation?

Chin augmentation restores balance to the face by increasing the size or projection of the chin. A silicone implant is placed over the bone to increase projection and contour. Chin augmentation is often done in conjunction with a facelift or nose surgery to achieve optimal facial balance and harmony.

Who is a candidate for chin augmentation?

  • If your chin is small and does not project enough to define your jawline, you may be a candidate for chin augmentation surgery. A chin augmentation or sliding genioplasty creates more balance and harmony to the face using an implant customized to your chin and face. Cheng Plastic Surgery was established by a brother-sister team of double board-certified facial plastic surgeons, both of whom have extensive experience with chin augmentation surgeries.

  • Local anesthesia is the most common method to place a chin implant. When bone repositioning is required, general anesthesia is recommended.
  • In the case of a chin implant, the incisions are usually under the chin or inside the lower lip. In both cases, scars are in discrete locations. The surgery takes less than a half hour after the anesthesia has taken effect.
  • A pocket is created in the chin, and the implant is placed over the jawbone. The incisions are then sutured closed.
  • The chin implant is customized to your facial shape and proportions. This handcrafting of the implant is done by Dr. Cheng in the operating room. Most implants are made of silicone, which has an excellent safety record.
