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 am so happy I chose Dr. Sawan for my breast reduction surgery. Two people recommended him to me which prompted my initial consultation. I knew he had an impressive career and expertise, but at that first meeting I found there to be an ease about him that made me trust him immediately. He was the surgeon for me. His staff is great, too. Knowledgeable, efficient and nice! You just know you’re in good hands. My whole experience from pre-surgery visits to follow-ups and the actual surgery itself has been so positive. Dr. Sawan listened and created exactly what I wanted. I’m super happy with my results. I highly recommend Sawan Surgical Aesthetics!"- B.R. / Google / Jul 12, 2020
"Let me tell you about Dr. Sawan. He took on my case after several other plastic surgeons either were too scared to operate on me due to a health condition I have or wouldn’t even see me until after I went through radiation. Dr Sawan not only saw me, he was confident he could not only perform the surgery but was sure I would be fine and heal easily. He and his office worked with and got insurance to cover things. His office staff was amazing to help us through the insurance chaos. Even through surgery delays due to Covid, his office stayed in touch with me and scheduled my surgery as soon as the surgery center was open. He was upbeat and encouraging on the day of my surgery knowing I was nervous due to my husband not being able to be with me. He took time to talk to him and explain everything to him and he was so sweet and gentle through my hospital stay. He sent all the removed tissue off to pathology and it all came back negative which resulted in me having NO RADIATION!!! 🎉🎉 I’ve healed perfectly, had no issues with my health condition and feel like I’ve been given a new lease on life! I have many amazing doctors on my cancer team but Dr Sawan has gone above and beyond to help us be informed and stay positive. Today I got an “Everything looks great” and a clearance to go back to go back to “whatever I want to do”. I highly recommend Dr. Kamal Sawan if you ever need a plastic surgeon. He’s the BEST!"- K.S. / Google / Jul 10, 2020
"After losing 100 pounds, I was left with lots of flab and extra skin. I had a 3D body lift. The surgery went smoothly With no complications at all! Dr Sawan was able to remove 16 pounds of superfluous skin and left me with perky breasts and tight abs. His work is AMAZING! I can’t even believe I am looking at myself when I walk by the mirror. I highly recommend Dr Sawan for any cosmetic procedure. He has a very helpful, kind staff and you will be treated with highest respect."- M.R. / Google / Jun 29, 2020
"I began my journey 9 years ago with weight loss surgery. I lost 128 pounds after weight loss surgery and within the last year I started working out in the gym, lifting weights. I wasn't seeing the results I thought I would see due to the fact that I had extra skin from being overweight previously. I went to see Dr. Sawan and talked to him. He gave me his recommendation and showed me pictures. He felt that I had very little fat and was actually toned from lifting, but my extra skin was getting in the way of my body showing the hard work I had put in. My surgery was May 14th. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Sawan. He did a fantastic job! The office staff were extremely kind, professional, and considerate. He let me ask every little question I had to ask and was very patient and caring. I look better than I have ever looked in my life. I'm excited to be back in the gym and enhance what Dr. Sawan has done for me."- K.S. / Google / Jun 11, 2020

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.
