What is Chin Augmentation Surgery?
Disproportionate facial features can accentuate the size of the nose or compromise a person’s overall appearance.

This surgical procedure can improve facial balance and produce beautiful, sculpted results. Dr. John D.

Chin Augmentation Surgical Technique
During surgery, an implant is placed through a small incision under the chin or inside the mouth. The implant increases chin projection, creating a more appealing balance between your chin and other features. The subtle increase in volume creates a more sculpted, youthful neckline. Your jawline is more refined, your nose may appear smaller, and your other features look more attractive. Once the implant has been inserted and properly placed the incision will be closed.

Chin Augmentation Surgery FAQ
Which implant will create the best result?
One of the most critical points in a beautiful result is selecting the perfect implant for your facial structure. Dr. Rachel has an eye for balance and will advise you about the implant that will achieve a result that looks beautifully natural and will bring your features into proportion.
What material are the implants made of?
Facial implants are created out of medical-grade silicone and come in a variety of shapes and sizes.
*Silicone implants are FDA approved for facial enhancement. However, silicone injections are not FDA approved and should not be injected into any part of the face. Doing so may result in pain, disfigurement, and even death.

Most patients experience a lifetime of improvement after their facial implant surgery.
