Chin augmentation, otherwise known as mentoplasty and genioplasty, uses surgical implants to balance your facial features, which may involve improving the size of a small chin or balancing the symmetry in an uneven chin. This procedure is often performed with other procedures, such as a facelift, to balance the proportions of the face and improve your profile.
During chin augmentation, the incisions are hidden inside of the mouth. This is an outpatient procedure performed under local anesthesia with sedation. Many of our patients return to light activity in a day or two, and fully recover within several weeks.
