About Chin Augmentation
Chin enhancement surgery (or chin augmentation) is a popular aesthetic treatment that improves the look of the chin for men and women who have a small and recessed chin, or one that feels too large. Often, when a chin is recessed and sunken in, it can lack definition in your profile. We can perform a number of techniques to improve the appearance of your chin, but one of the most popular procedures is inserting an implant to build a stronger jawline and a more defined profile. In Palm Beach, FL, we offer many alternatives to consider for augmenting your chin. In addition to implants, which are manufactured in numerous sizes and shapes, we can use noninvasive treatments, such as fillers, to reshape.

Is Chin Augmentation For You?
Mentoplasty is a treatment for both women and men. If you are unhappy with the size and shape of your chin and do not like the weak profile it creates, chin augmentation can redefine the lower portion of your face. It is also common for some of our patients to receive a rhinoplasty with their chin augmentation treatment. This blend of enhancements helps balance your facial features.
During this procedure, our Harvard-trained anesthesiologist will administer general anesthesia or IV sedation in some cases. The incision is carefully made just under your chin. Through this incision, a pocket is created to keep the implant in place, which involves shaving some of the tissue, cartilage, and bone to make grooves to securely hold the implant in position. The chin implant is placed through the incision and positioned over the bone, just below your bottom lip. In some cases, the incision can also be made inside the lip where it connects to your gumline. Both types of incisions help to conceal scars. Tiny sutures are used to close the incisions, and the bottom portion of your face will be wrapped with medical garments.
Your Chin Augmentation
Chin enhancement surgery creates immediate visible results, which can be very delightful for our patients. Although you will notice swelling and bruising following your surgery, these symptoms are only temporary. In most cases, chin augmentation roughly takes 1 – 3 weeks of healing. Patients should avoid exercise during this timeframe. Chin augmentation surgery has historically high success rates and under the hands of a trained surgeon, your outcome will look natural and proportionate.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does chin augmentation cost?
We can start estimating your costs for chin augmentation during your consultation as soon as your treatment plan is formed. Your costs are based on the type and size of the implant you select, along with anesthesia, facility, and surgical fees. A cosmetic procedure, like a chin implant, can give you great, long-lasting results so we recommend concentrating on finding a plastic surgeon you trust with experience and proven results instead of the lowest cost. DeRosa Clinic Plastic Surgery takes many payments, and we will help you find low-interest financing that will make your surgery more affordable.
Will augmentation fix my double chin?
A chin implant is meant to offer you a sharper, stronger look to your lower face. If you are concerned about a double chin, you might prefer neck liposuction to have the excess fat in your upper neck below the jawline (the submental area) removed. Occasionally, this technique on its own can create a new jawline and appearance without needing to have an implant procedure. We will go over your treatment options in your first appointment.
Can I combine other facial surgeries with chin augmentation?
Some patients combine chin augmentation with another facial surgery, like cheek implants or nose reshaping surgery. One of our expert doctors can help you choose which procedures best fit your concerns and wants in your consultation. It might be difficult to tell by yourself what procedure(s) will work best for you, which is why your consultation with us is so important. Our doctors use their years of experience to help you develop a treatment plan.
What's the difference between mentoplasty and genioplasty?
Mentoplasty is a procedure that adds fullness to your chin. On the other hand, genioplasty is a procedure that reconstructs the chin bone.
