The chin plays an important role in one’s appearance as it can make a woman appear more feminine and a man appear more masculine. If you’re bothered by your weak chin and would like some more definition, you may be a good candidate for chin augmentation. This procedure can help you achieve a natural, flattering chin so that you can look and feel your best. Keep reading to learn about the two techniques that are used to perform chin augmentation.
How is Chin Augmentation Performed?
Chin augmentation involves the use of implants to improve the appearance of the chin. Implants are available in a variety of shapes, sizes, and materials so that each procedure can be custom tailored to a patient’s needs.
The outpatient procedure can be performed with general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation in an hour or less. During a chin augmentation, you can expect Dr. Schalit to make an incision underneath your chin or inside of your mouth. The technique he uses will depend on your particular goals and preferences.
Once he makes an incision, Dr. Schalit will be able to place the chin implant around your chin bone. At the end of the procedure, he’ll use sutures to close the incision and you’ll be ready for the recovery process. Although you’ll be discouraged from engaging in vigorous exercise for six weeks after the surgery, you’ll be able to resume work and your other responsibilities a week following the procedure.

Benefits of Chin Augmentation
There are a number of benefits you may enjoy if you undergo chin augmentation. First and foremost, you’ll enhance your facial harmony because you’ll have a chin with structure and shape. You’ll also feel more confident because you’ll be left with a more defined jawline and a smoother, more refined neckline.
Alternatives to Chin Augmentation
If you’re not ready to commit to chin augmentation and are searching for a less-invasive way to improve the appearance of your chin, a dermal injection may be a good alternative. Dermal injections come with virtually no downtime and last for many months. Dr. Schalit can inform you of whether a dermal injection is a better option for your situation.
