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.

"I just had my initial consultation with Dr DeRosa and was very satisfied, after having seen two or three other facial, plastic surgeons prior. I was highly impressed with her passion, obvious skill and competency. In today's high volume, fast paced, often automaton medical world, her reassuring and gentle manner, after my recent facial trauma, was certainly refreshing, as well as her thoroughness in explaining her proposed treatment plan and followup visits . I will definitely be returning for my continued recovery from my facial injury. I highly recommend her services to the Palm Beach community as I am sure her new office in Palm Beach will be booming and successful for years to come."- M.D. / Google / Mar 15, 2020
"I went today for a consultation with Doc Derosa and was pleasantly surprised. Doctor Derosa talked me through what I wanted and suggested that I go a less invasive route on account of my skin and how it would take the treatment I originally wanted. She could not have been any more honest or friendly!! I am going back in two weeks to see the esthetician :o) I didn't catch the lady at the front desk's name, but she was also super friendly and professional!!"- A.B. / Yelp / Mar 05, 2020
"The DeRosa clinic is one of my favorite spots in Boston. I schedule visits around Dr. DeRosa and lead aesthetician, Steven Giannetta’s availability. The practice is located centrally on Newbury Street in the heart of Back Bay. The experience is pleasant and effortless from ease of communication with appointment schedulers to greeting when you walk through the doors. The office is gorgeous with natural light shining through the lobby front windows and meticulously kept modern and spacious treatment rooms. Dr. Derosa’s hallmark is enhancement with emphasis on a natural aesthetic. I never feel rushed when speaking with her and that holds true with the rest of her team. Each member of the team shares an attitude of professionalism, excellence and compassion. Although there is not a treatment I have not liked, I am personally obsessed with dermaplanning and the Vi peel. My only complaint is not having a DeRosa clinic in New York...yet."- E.M. / Google / Feb 28, 2020
"Dr Derosa did an incredible job on my daughter... we specifically chose her because my daughter had breathing difficulties and we wanted someone double board certified. We met her after interviewing 3 other surgeons... and we adored her immediately. The night before surgery I saw the negative reviews she has gotten and it made me very nervous... but then I remembered that the percentage was tiny in comparison to all the surgeries she has performed. She knew exactly how to calm my daughter. We are now a week out of our surgery and all I can say is she was amazing. The nursing staff raved about her at Mass Eye and Ear...she listened to us and changed as little as possible. My daughter is thrilled and we are too...she is a true artist. We are thankful to all the lovely staff too."- A.H. / Yelp / Feb 18, 2020
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 facial 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.
