The size and position of your chin can have a powerful influence on attractiveness. A chin augmentation with Dr. Fenner is a transformative procedure that can restore facial harmony while creating a beautifully defined jawline.

The benefits

A balanced chin is an integral component of beauty. When it does not complement the rest of your facial features, it creates an undesirable effect. When this occurs, chin augmentation with Dr. Fenner has the power to:

  • Correct a small or recessed chin
  • Strengthen a weak jawline
  • Sculpt a more attractive profile
  • Restore balance to your facial features
  • Balance a large or prominent nose

Are you a candidate?

The ideal chin augmentation candidate is a man or woman whose facial aesthetics can be improved by altering the size, shape and position of the chin. In general, facial asymmetry, a poorly defined jawline, and a weak or receding chin are all indications that you may benefit from this procedure.

The procedure
What to expect

Your chin augmentation will be done under general anesthesia. Once you are asleep, Dr. Fenner will create a small incision either beneath your chin or inside your mouth. Through that opening, he will stretch the underlying tissue to create space for the implant. 

Chin implants are composed of a synthetic material that mimics the feel of natural tissue and is custom formed to your facial anatomy. Dr. Fenner will place the implant in the pocket he created and position it to ensure a symmetrical outcome. He will then close the incisions with sutures. Depending on your needs, Dr. Fenner may also perform gentle liposuction along the neck and jawline to further refine the area and ensure that your cosmetic goals are realized.

 The recovery

After your chin augmentation, you will be free to return home the very same day to begin the healing process. Apply a cold compress regularly to minimize swelling and bruising in the area. Mild to moderate discomfort is common, though these effects should improve within a day or two.

Most of our patients can expect to take a week off work and their normal daily routine following a chin augmentation. However, Dr. Fenner will provide you with a custom recovery timeline during your post-operative appointments, including when you can resume exercise and other strenuous activities.

The results

It will take about three months for your chin augmentation results to finalize. At that point, you will see enhanced facial balance, along with a beautifully defined neck contour. Chin implants can remain in place indefinitely and very rarely need to be replaced.

If Dr. Fenner placed the incisions inside your mouth, you will experience no visible post-surgical marks. If the incision was placed beneath your chin, you will have one, very small scar in the area. Once fully healed, it should be virtually imperceptible.
