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.

Procedure

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.

My upper and lower eye lift turned out wonderful. All eyelid droopiness, under-eye fatty pockets and sagging skin - now gone. You can barely see the scar and I haven't even finished healing yet. I'm 50 and lovin' it. Thank you!

Recovery

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.
