What is Chin Augmentation?
Chin enhancement surgery (or chin augmentation) is a successful aesthetic procedure that recontours the chin and lower face if you have a recessive chin, or if you feel your chin is too prominent. Often when a chin is too small, it can create a lack of profile definition. In these cases, several aesthetic enhancements can be performed to improve the appearance of your chin, and one of the most common procedures is placing a silicone implant to build a more prominent jawline and a more appealing profile. You can also have this surgery at Sawan Surgical Aesthetics to remove bone to reduce your chin and jaw for a more balanced look. In Oklahoma City, OK, plastic surgeon Dr. Kamal Sawan offers many alternatives to consider for your chin augmentation. Aside from implants, which are produced in various sizes and shapes, noninvasive treatments, such as injectable fillers or KYBELLA, can be used to add contour.
"I recently moved to Edmond about a year ago when I first saw Dr. Sawan for filler. I loved my first experience and still enjoy every appointment. Dr. Sawan is honest, trustworthy and so educated in all the products he uses. He explains and answers all concerns and questions and also helped me by correcting my previous filler work. I recommend him to anyone."- A.L. / Google / Aug 21, 2020

"Multiple +/-100lbs weight loss adventures, correcting saggy body bits - After multiple +/-100lbs weight loss adventures during the last 15 years, it was time to correct my overstretched and saggy body bits. I had 6 consults with various plastic surgeons, all recommended something a bit different than the other. Dr Sawan was straightforward with his recommendation, and I appreciated it. So, after much research, I chose Dr Sawan (he was recommended to me initially by a nurse that sees the work of several surgeons at Summit Medical Facility, so that gave an added boost of confidence in my choice). I had a lower body lift (360 tummy tuck), breast lift with augmentation (implants), Lipo, and fat transfer to the bum. I’m 12 days post op now. My incisions are perfectly straight, my tummy is flawless, my belly button is adorable, these tatas are perfection, and my butt is wrinkle-free and so plump! I was very reluctant to proceed with the fat transfer, but my goodness, I’m so glad I listened to the doc. My butt is my favorite thing!! Dr Sawan is a “to the point” kinda guy, just expect it. But he’s pretty dang funny when you least expect it. And he KNOWS what he’s doing. His YouTube videos were helpful for me as well. My recovery has been so much easier than is expected (I bought a Walker and all kinds of unnecessary stuff that I returned to Amazon already). I made dinner the last 3 nights, I’m doing household chores and helping the kids with homework. I quit my pain meds around day 5. Side note; Summit Medical Center is absolutely fantastic. My husband says it’s like staying at a hotel, lol. The nurses are beyond helpful. I’m completely over the moon with my decision to get the plastics!"- B. / RealSelf / May 01, 2022
"I am days 5 post op (full body lift and breast lift with implants) and am literally stunned at how good Dr. Sawan's work is. I researched about 20 different doctors all over the US and my search started and ended with Dr. Sawan. I had really high hopes and requests for him and he exceeded all of them. In addition, his office staff are incredible, Anna is great and answered every single question I had.. I had been to the surgery center he uses in the past but have to say that as his patient, my care was absolutely excellent and my nurse, Jera, was just wonderful. I'll update as I heal, but I am thrilled with my results, he's a true artist and I hope he never loses the wonder in what he does."- M.W. / Google / Apr 19, 2022
Can I Have Chin Augmentation?
If you are displeased by the appearance of your chin and dislike the profile it creates, this cosmetic enhancement can improve the lower aspect of your facial structure to create a balanced, aesthetically pleasing profile. It's also fairly common for our patients to add a rhinoplasty to their chin augmentation to create an even more balanced appearance. You may be a good candidate if you have:
- A recessed chin
- A lack of definition around your jawline
- A weak profile
- Facial imbalance
How Does Chin Augmentation Work?
During chin enhancement surgery, general anesthesia is used. In some cases sedation by IV may be used; Dr. Sawan will discuss these options with you in your consultation. The incision is made under your chin, and a pocket is formed to secure the implant device in place, which includes reducing some of the bone to create grooves to hold your implant in position. The chin implant is inserted through the incision and positioned over the bone, below your lower lip. In some cases, the incision can be created inside the lower lip where it connects to your gumline. Both types of incisions help to hide scars. Small sutures are used to safely close the incisions, and your lower face will be wrapped with bandages.
What Should I Expect After Chin Augmentation?
After your chin augmentation, you'll likely notice immediate results. Even though you will experience redness, swelling, and bruising following your surgery, this only lasts a short while and is perfectly normal. You can expect that you'll need a couple of weeks to fully recover, of which you'll need to avoid exercise. This particular surgery has historically high success rates and under the hands of a skilled surgeon, like Dr. Sawan, your outcome will be proportionate, refined, and should leave you feeling and looking even more beautiful.
