What is a chin augmentation?

Chin implant cosmetic surgery involves head and neck surgeon practicing in facial plastic surgery Dr. Moubayed placing a silicone implant on top of the bone and underneath the muscle, adding projection to the chin. A silicone implant has a natural feel and carries the advantage of being permanent, thus avoiding multiple sessions of hyaluronic acid fillers.

This facial implant is easily reversible or removed if the patient desires removal or if the chin implant gets infected (3% lifetime infection risk).

What are the different types of chin implants?

Silicone Chin Implant

One of the most common materials used for chin implants is silicone. This soft and flexible material can be easily molded to fit the patient’s chin, making it a popular choice for those seeking chin augmentation. It has a very natural feel to the touch.

Medpor Chin Implant

Medpor is another porous material often used for chin implants. It is a durable, high-density polyethylene material that can maintain its shape over time.However this material is much harder to the touch and has a less natural feel.

Anatomic Chin Implants

Anatomic chin implants mimic the natural shape of the chin and jawline, creating a more natural appearance after surgery.

Extended Anatomic Chin Augmentations

These implants not only enhance the chin but also the jawline, creating a more defined and sculpted appearance to the face.

Square Chin Implants

Square chin implants create a more angular and masculine appearance to the chin and jawline.

Button Chin Augmentations

Button chin augmentations are small implants that add projection to the chin, creating a more balanced and proportionate facial profile.

What surgical approach is used for chin augmentations?

There are two ways to place chin implants: the external approach that produces a visible scar on the chin, or the intraoral approach, through the mouth, that leaves no external scars.

In patients with a history of bad scarring, Dr. Moubayed prefers the intraoral approach to avoid external scars. For most patients, we perform the external approach as the chin implant can be placed through a small 2 centimeter incision that heals beautifully, and this way the implant avoids contact with body fluids like saliva, decreasing theoretical infection risk.

How do I know if I need chin surgery?

The chin is a defining feature of a person’s face. It can create harmony with the rest of the face and give the appearance of a strong jawline. Surgical enhancement may be necessary for various reasons. As we age, our face, jaw, and body bones lose strength and density, resulting in a “weak chin.”

As you age, your chin may become smaller and less prominent. This can happen as the soft tissue of your neck and face droops. Some people are born with naturally smaller and less prominent chins and may choose to have surgery at a younger age. If you have severe sleep apnea, you may need chin or jaw surgery.

A small and recessed chin could potentially contribute to sleep apnea and there are certain genetic conditions that can lead to congenital jaw issues requiring medical attention.

To determine if chin surgery is necessary, it is recommended to assess the facial profile. A chin that is positioned too far back from the upper lip may benefit from surgery. Medical standards and measurements can be used to determine if the chin is proportional to other facial features, such as the nose.

The chin can vary in size, with some individuals having a small chin (microgenia) and others having a chin that is retracted backward (retrognathia). A specialist can assist in determining the appropriate course of action for achieving facial balance.

Chin implants surgery are a great options for candidates with the following criteria:

  • Individuals with a weak or recessed chin
  • Patients with facial asymmetry
  • Those who wish to improve their facial profile

What are the most common risks associated with chin augmentation surgery?

Like any plastic surgery procedure, chin augmentation surgery, also known as genioplasty, carries some risks. 

The following are some of the most common risks associated with chin augmentation surgery
  • Infection: As with any surgery, there is a risk of infection at the incision site, which can lead to pain, swelling, redness, and discharge.

  • Numbness: Chin implant surgery can cause temporary or permanent numbness in the chin and lower lip area, which can affect sensation and muscle movement.

  • Implant shifting or displacement: Chin implants can shift or move from their original position, leading to an asymmetrical appearance or discomfort.

  • Implant rejection: In rare cases, the body may reject the implant, leading to inflammation, infection, or implant failure.
  • Bleeding and hematoma: Chin implant surgery can cause bleeding and the formation of a hematoma (a collection of blood), which can cause pain, swelling, and discomfort.

  • Scarring: Chin implant surgery involves making incisions, which can lead to visible scarring.

  • Difficulty speaking or eating: Swelling and numbness after surgery can make it difficult to speak or eat normally for a short period of time.

  • Unsatisfactory results: In some cases, patients may not be satisfied with the results of their surgery, which may require additional procedures or revision surgery.

It’s important to discuss these risks with a qualified head and neck surgeon practicing in facial plastic surgery such as Dr. Moubayed before undergoing the procedure, as well as any steps that can be taken to minimize these risks. Following the surgeon’s instructions before and after surgery can also help reduce the likelihood of complications.
