Chin Implant in Birmingham, Ann Arbor and Detroit
Improve Facial Harmony
Chin enhancement surgery, also called genioplasty, improves contours of the chin, neck and jawline. This surgery involves placement of an implant around a patient’s existing chin bone to augment the size and shape of the chin to compliment a patient's natural facial features.
A surgical chin implant, used for chin augmentation, can create a redefined and contoured facial appearance. Chin augmentation can bring the chin into better proportion with other features, correct a weak or recessed chin, improve definition of the neck and jawline, or help reduce the appearance of a full or “double” chin caused by a small chin bone.
- Adds projection to the chin for a more defined appearance
- Contours the jawline
- Adds symmetry to the face
- Natural-looking, permanent results
- Can be performed at the same time as other facial plastic surgery procedures
The cost of your chin augmentation will vary depending on the extent of treatment needed to help you achieve your desired results.
The entire surgical process typically only takes about an hour to complete.
What Can I Expect During my Chin Augmentation?
Your chin augmentation will be performed by Dr. Charles Boyd in our Birmingham office. For your comfort, we use local anesthesia during your surgery. Dr. Boyd will make a very small incision on the underside of the chin. Through this incision, he will be able to carefully place the implant into the treatment area and adjust it accordingly. The entire surgical process typically only takes about an hour to complete.
What Can I Expect During my Chin Augmentation Recovery?
Following your chin augmentation, you may experience tenderness, bruising, and swelling around your treated areas. This is normal and typically resolves on its own within the following one to two weeks. While most of our patients are able to return back to their normal daily activities, including work, about 7 to 10 days following their procedure, it typically takes up to four weeks to make a full recovery. Dr. Boyd will give you detailed post-operative care instructions prior to your chin augmentation to ensure a swift and easy recovery period.
