chin augmentation At Altos Oaks Plastic Surgery in Los Altos, CA, patients often ask if we can give them a more pronounced chin. For these patients, a chin augmentation is the ideal solution. So, what is a chin augmentation, and who is an ideal candidate?

The Chin Augmentation Procedure

A chin augmentation always includes local anesthesia to ensure a painless experience. The procedure involves making a small incision under your chin. We position an implant to provide a more defined jawline, helping to improve the definition of your face.

Depending on your goals, we may combine the chin augmentation procedure with liposuction, helping to reduce fat in and around your jawline while smoothing out your appearance. So, who is an ideal candidate for chin augmentation?

You Want a More Defined Chin

Whether your chin is too short, not defined enough, or you feel you lack a pronounced jawline, a chin augmentation can help to even out these inconsistencies. At Altos Oaks Plastic Surgery in Los Altos, CA, our patients often report feeling younger and more vibrant after their chin augmentation.

You Don’t Have Unrealistic Expectations

It’s important to have realistic expectations with chin augmentation. While the results are impressive, a chin augmentation won’t have you suddenly looking like Brad Pitt or Bella Hadid. Can a chin augmentation improve your appearance and make you look younger? Yes, it absolutely can, but it cannot change the entire structure of your face.

You Want To Feel Better About Yourself

A pronounced chin and leveled jawline are associated with attractiveness. For our patients, a chin augmentation improves their confidence, has them smiling more, and gives them a better sense of self. That shows up in how they interact with friends, family, and coworkers.

You Maintain Your Weight

Chin augmentation positions your chin so that you have more definition in your jawline. When combined with liposuction, we are able to remove small fat deposits under your chin and neck to help improve that definition. However, if you have problems maintaining your weight, then the benefits of chin augmentation can diminish.
