Chin augmentation involves adjusting and improving the chin area through surgical or non-surgical procedures.

There are various reasons why people choose to undergo chin augmentation. This may include enhancing or fixing a small or uneven chin, improving the definition of facial features, or reconstructing after a traumatic injury or tumour removal.

What is chin augmentation?

There are two types of chin augmentation:

  • Surgical chin augmentation: surgical chin augmentation includes inserting chin implants made from either bone or silicone. They come in various shapes and sizes. Your surgeon will guide you on the type and size of chin implants suitable for your face shape. In some cases, chin augmentation may also be done by reshaping the jaw bones. 
  • Non-surgical chin augmentation: non-surgical chin augmentation has been gaining popularity recently. It involves the use of dermal fillers that can change the chin shape to a certain degree. Non-surgical chin augmentation procedures are suitable for those with mild to moderate chin recession, typically for aesthetic reasons. They offer immediate results without significant downtime and discomfort. 

How does chin augmentation work?

Surgical Chin Augmentation

During a surgical chin augmentation procedure, patients will typically be placed under general anaesthesia so that they will not feel any pain or discomfort. It may be done at a hospital or clinic. 

The surgeon will cut either inside the mouth or externally underneath the chin to create a pocket where the implant can be placed. The most common types of chin implants are made from silicone, but in some cases, they may be made from bone or fat tissue. The implant is normally fixed to the bone using stitches or screws. Then, the cut is closed up by the surgeon using stitches. 

Usually, this procedure does not leave a noticeable scar once fully healed, especially when the cut is done from inside the mouth. It usually takes about an hour. If the surgeon also needs to cut the jaw bones, the procedure is more invasive and may take up to 3 hours.

Non-Surgical Chin Augmentation

Non-surgical chin augmentation is much less invasive. Dermal fillers containing substances such as hyaluronic acid are injected into the chin to add volume and smooth wrinkles. Numbing cream may be applied to minimise pain and discomfort. The procedure is usually done within 30 minutes, but dermal fillers will fade over time.

It is important to consult a reputable and licensed physician for surgical and non-surgical chin augmentation procedures. They can advise you on the best course of action while taking note of your medical history and goals.

What conditions can chin augmentation treat?

Chin augmentation can be used to treat the following conditions:

  • Small or recessed chins
  • Loss in facial volume
  • Misshapen chin or jaw due to tumours or trauma

What results can I expect?

The results you can expect from chin augmentation depend primarily on your goals, skin type, and your unique facial features. If the goal is to enhance facial harmony, you may be advised to undergo rhinoplasty or jaw procedures to ensure the features are balanced.

If you had surgery, you will need to wait until your chin has fully healed to see results, as there will be swelling and minor scarring at first. The downtime will be longer if you had surgery, as you will need more time to recover and for the cut to heal. 

If the aim is to restore volume and smooth wrinkles in the chin, you can achieve that with dermal fillers and see results immediately. For some dermal fillers, you may see the best results after a few months, as it takes time for the substance to produce new collagen and improve firmness in the chin area. You may experience temporary redness, swelling, and inflammation with dermal fillers for the first 23-48 hours. You should be able to resume your regular activities immediately after the procedure. 

Whichever chin augmentation procedure you have, you can expect significant changes in your chin area and face shape in line with your goals and treatment plan.

How many treatment sessions are needed? 

For surgical procedures, only one session at a time is usually needed. As dermal filler procedures are not permanent, you may be advised to return for touch-up procedures every 1 or 2 years, depending on the substance that was used.
