What is Chin Augmentation?
Chin enhancement surgery is a popular cosmetic treatment that recontours the jawline and chin for men and women with a small and recessed chin or one they feel is overlarge. When a chin lacks shape and size, it can create an unappealing profile. Both surgical and nonsurgical chin augmentation can be performed to improve the balance of your facial features, but one of the most popular techniques involves placing an implant to build a stronger jawline and a more defined profile. In Jacksonville, FL, cosmetic surgeons Dr. Erik Nuveen and Dr. Courtney Caplin offer several alternatives to consider for your chin enhancement. For prominent chins, genioplasty could be considered, which involves removing bone tissue to make your chin and jaw smaller in size.

"I had a breast reduction done with Dr. Caplin. This was the best experience I could’ve had! All of the staff at this facility are the kindest people! They made sure they discussed the entire procedure through and through and made sure to answer any questions I had no matter how big or small. I am so happy I went here for my procedure and feel like anywhere else wouldn’t have given me the same experience. Now my results … I was a 38I and went all the way down to a B! There was no better feeling than waking up the day of my procedure and looking at my chest!! I was crying the entire day from joy. I am now 1 week post op and they look AMAZINGGGGGGG!!! I couldn’t be happier !! They are an amazing group of people and skilled at their job! 20/10 would recommend!!"- A.W. / Google / Aug 19, 2023
"I had a great experience! I came for a facial and had an appointment with Micah. I got there early and instead of waiting for my scheduled time they saw me right away! They were very thorough in getting to know my skin type and needs. I have very sensitive skin, so thats important to me. Also the atmosphere was very relaxing. The esthetician was friendly and made me feel comfortable. But she didn't talk the whole time, so I was able to relax which I appreciated. I would recommend this place, and especially micah, to anyone looking for a rejuvenating facial! My skin is still glowing from it!"- E.H. / Google / Aug 16, 2023

HOW IS MENTOPLASTY DONE?
During chin augmentation, general anesthesia will be administered, or IV sedation in some cases. The incision is carefully made beneath your chin. In this incision, a surgical pocket is made to secure the implant in place, which involves removing and shaving some of the bone and cartilage to make grooves to hold your implant in position. The implant is inserted through the incision and positioned over the bone, just below your bottom lip. Sometimes, the incision can also be made inside the lower lip where it connects to your gumline. Both incision points help to hide scars. Tiny stitches are used to connect and close the incisions, and the bottom portion of your face will be wrapped with bandages.
