This surgery is especially pertinent to patients whose chin is disproportionate to their noses. Chin augmentation will strengthen the patient’s jawline by building up a receding chin or augmenting a small chin.

Chin Augmentation Surgery

Dr. Schwartz will place an inconspicuous incision in the crease beneath the chin. A pocket will be created in front of the chin bone where the implant will be placed. An implant made from Silicone will be contoured to fit and sit snugly onto the chin. The implant becomes tightly held into the chin bone by the bone’s natural lining. The implant can extend to include the “pre-jowl” depression, giving a smooth, natural look without a pointy “witches chin” appearance.
