Chin augmentation (enlargement) is a cosmetic procedure customized to reshape or enhance the size of the chin to help restore a sense of balance among facial features. When a person has a small or short chin, it can significantly impact their overall facial balance and perception of their other features. Our double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Emily Hrisomalos, can improve the overall harmony of the facial features by contouring the chin and jawline through chin augmentation.
What Is the Chin Augmentation Recovery Period Like?
It usually takes less than a week for patients to recover from chin augmentation surgery. Scarring is typically minimal as the incision is made either inside the mouth or beneath the chin. For individuals that received only dermal fillers, it may only take two to three days to recover. “Social” recovery will depend on the patient and when they feel most comfortable to go out in public after surgery. During the consultation, Dr. Hrisomalos will go over all information in detail as to what to expect during the recovery process.
