Chin Augmentation

For people from Wasilla, Palmer, and surrounding areas, a chin implant can strengthen the appearance of their chin, helping to create a well-defined profile. Chin augmentation is performed at our Anchorage FACES location to address your concerns about a recessed chin. Our board-certified facial plastic surgeons at Alaska Center for Ear, Nose and Throat use their extensive knowledge of facial anatomy to provide balance and harmony to your appearance.



Our highly-trained providers look forward to meeting you and answering all of your questions.

Placing a chin implant involves making an incision just beneath the chin in a natural skin crease. The surgical grade implant is gently inserted through the incision and adjusted to achieve the desired contour. In most cases, a chin implant can be performed in-office under local anesthesia.

Patients who get chin augmentation sometimes combine the procedure with other facial cosmetic surgery, especially rhinoplasty. Combining chin implants with a nose job can dramatically improve your profile.

Thank you. I am so grateful for the phenomenal results of my surgery. I sincerely appreciate your medical expertise and surgical skills. My scar line is invisible. I look like myself again. When I look in the mirror, I am thankful that you were my surgeon.

Tenderness and swelling are normal and common when recovering from chin augmentation surgery. Some patients experience temporary numbness. You might feel a stretched, tight sensation which usually is gone after about a week. Swelling will gradually resolve over a few weeks. Patients should limit physical activity for about 2 weeks. Sutures are removed after a week and follow-up appointments are scheduled for a month and 3 months after surgery.
