What Is A Chin Augmentation Surgery?

When considering facial balance, many overlook the importance of the chin. However, while the nose and eyes may gain priority, a strong or well-defined chin can dramatically change and improve your overall appearance and restore harmony among your facial features. 

At Eos Rejuvenation, Dr. Nima has mastered the science of facial artistry in performing chin augmentations. He is passionate about helping his patients in Beverly Hills look and feel more confident with an attractive chin that elevates and balances their entire appearance. 

Why Should I Get a Chin Augmentation?

With the rise of social media, remote working, and online video conferences, you are in front of the camera more and more. This virtual environment may bring more attention to your face, including the chin. Your chin may not meet your aesthetic goals, impacting your overall self-esteem and confidence. 

At Eos Rejuvenation, Dr. Nima has patients come in for a chin augmentation for many different reasons, but the most common include: 

  • Having a weak or small chin. 
  • Having a nose that appears too large due to a weak or undefined chin. 
  • Creating more balance and facial harmony. 
  • Contouring a more proportioned chin and jawline.

The Procedure Process Explained

The Consultation

Scheduling an initial consultation is the first step towards achieving beautiful, natural-looking results with your chin augmentation in Beverly Hills. 

At your consultation, Dr. Nima will ask questions about your aesthetic goals, concerns, and procedure expectations, perform a facial assessment, and take photos to help you meet your desires. Dr. Nima will bring different implants to see which works best for you, and you will get to try them on to see which looks best.

Additionally, Dr. Nima uses advanced technology to morph your before photos and create new images that adequately show what your chin will look like after the procedure. This extra step ensures you feel comfortable and confident moving forward with your chin augmentation. 

Dr. Nima will also discuss your medical history (including past surgeries), current medications, medical conditions, and any other vital information that is important for your treatment. 

What is Chin Augmentation Like? 

Based on your individual treatment plan, Dr. Nima may insert chin implants and/or remove excess fat from the chin area. 

To insert your chin implants, Dr. Nima will make a small incision beneath your chin or inside your mouth. Both of these incision options result in a nearly invisible scar. Once the implants are in place, he will close the incision with sutures or stitches. 

Chin augmentation is done under local anesthesia, which will be painless.  We recommend having someone drive you home.

Other Things to Consider Before Getting a Chin Augmentation

Are There Any Risks Involved? 

Similar to other facial plastic surgery procedures, you should be aware of some risks associated with chin augmentation. These risks include bleeding, infection, asymmetry, chin implant displacement, changes in sensation, and adverse reactions to anesthesia. 

Make sure you choose an experienced, double board-certified facial plastic surgeon who has a deep knowledge of this procedure and understands how to mitigate these risks, such as Dr. Nima. 

Will I Need to Request Extensive Time Off From Work?

During your recovery, you can expect little discomfort and downtime. Dr. Nima recommends taking at least one week off from work. After this short recovery period, you should be able to resume your normal routine. 

How Long Will My Results Last? 

Chin implants contain solid materials, like silicone, that will not leak, degrade, or break down. Hence, your results should last a very long time. 

However, if you combine your chin augmentation with liposuction or rhinoplasty, these results can be affected by weight gain, facial trauma, damage during recovery, and other circumstances. 

Is It Really Worth it? 

If you feel your chin does not optimally complement or balance your other facial features, a chin augmentation can be an ideal way to restore facial harmony. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Nima today and find out if chin augmentation in Beverly Hills can improve your appearance.
