Men of all ages who suffer from an under-projected or “weak” chin can also struggle with self-confidence issues because of it. If you desire fuller, more balanced facial features that will enhance your natural aesthetic, there’s a way to solve this problem. At Male Plastic Surgery in Los Angeles, we offer chin and jaw augmentation surgery that can give you a defined, pronounced and overall more proportional appearance.

What Is a Chin Augmentation?

“Mentoplasty” or chin surgery is a procedure that uses an implant or reduction surgery on the bone to reshape the chin and restore balance to the face. In some cases, individual facial features such as a weak chin can throw off the aesthetic balance of the face. Altering the appearance of the chin can greatly improve the harmony of the face for many men, as well as counter the effects of aging.

How Does Chin Augmentation Surgery Work?

Chin augmentation surgery begins with a small, discreet incision in the natural crease under chin. In some cases, an incision is made on the inside of the mouth. Next, overlying tissue is lifted off the chin bone creating space for an implant to be placed. Chin implants are made from a special, medical-grade material that looks and feels like natural bone. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes so that they can be tailored to the individual patient. Finally, fine sutures are used to close the incisions. Chin augmentation surgery takes an average of 30 minutes to an hour. 




What Is the Recovery Time for Chin Augmentation Surgery?

Swelling post-chin augmentation is common and usually peaks 24-48 hours after surgery. Heightened swelling does subside, however prolonged swelling may occur and final surgery results will be seen within several months. Most male patients in LA return to work within 5 days after chin augmentation surgery, however strenuous exercise should be avoided for 10 days.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Chin Augmentation?

Ideal candidates for chin augmentation surgery are men who present weak and unpronounced chins. Men who are unhappy with the profile view of their face particularly benefit from chin augmentation. There are some prerequisites to consider for men seeking chin augmentation surgery in LA. Candidates must be over the age of 18 and be in overall good health. Prospective patients must also be non-smokers to ensure a quick and successful recovery.
