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.


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.
