Chin Augmentation

Establish Harmony

If your chin appears weak or underdeveloped, it can affect the overall proportion of your face. A weak chin can impact the definition of the jawline, contribute to the appearance of unwanted prominence of the nose, forehead as well as an aged and saggy neck. Fortunately, chin augmentation can provide balance and harmony to your facial features and improve your confidence and self-image.

If you are unhappy with the appearance of a weak chin, contact Dr. Fugo Plastic Surgery or our Med Spa today. You can reach us online or at 845.565.7040 to arrange your free consultation. Our office in New Windsor, New York welcomes patients from throughout the Hudson Valley region, New York City, and all around the Tri-State area.

What Is Chin Augmentation?

Chin augmentation is performed to create proportion and balance on the entire face. At Dr. Fugo Plastic Surgery or The Med Spa by Futalo Aesthetics, chin augmentation can involve either a surgical or non-surgical approach, including:

  • Chin implants: A chin implant is a biocompatible device that is placed to create a well-proportioned chin appearance. Results are extremely long-lasting and chin implants may never need to be replaced. This does however involve a surgical procedure and the potential risks that may bring.
  • Injectable fillers: This minimally-invasive, straightforward chin augmentation option utilizes injectables to alter the size and shape of the jawline. The procedure requires no anesthesia, can be performed in minutes, is infinitely adjustable, requires no downtime and leaves no scar. Results are easily maintained with annual touch-up treatments.

Your ideal chin augmentation option depends on your unique features and goals. During your initial consultation with Dr. Fugo, he will assess your anatomical attributes, explain all of your treatment options, and recommend the approach that best meets your lifestyle, budget, and desired outcome.

Benefits Of Chin Augmentation

Chin augmentation offers a variety of benefits to patients, including:

  • Proportion, symmetry, and balance of facial features
  • Reduced appearance of dimpling caused by a loose chin
  • Increased vertical chin height for a longer-looking face
  • Increased projection of the lower face for an enhanced facial profile and jawline appearance.
  • Improved appearance of early jowl formation for a more youthful look

As a board-certified plastic surgeon with years of proven experience providing outstanding results, Dr. Fugo is committed to creating results that are balanced, elegant, and natural-looking. He combines his extensive knowledge with surgical expertise and an artistic eye to deliver results that are truly exceptional. Every patient is unique, and your chin augmentation will be specifically designed just for you.

Is Chin Augmentation Right for Me?

If you want to address a weak or recessed chin to achieve improved facial symmetry, chin augmentation can help you reach your goals. Chin augmentation is an ideal option for patients who would like to:

  • Diminish a full or double-chin effect caused by a small chin bone
  • Sharpen the jawline or neck for more defined contours
  • Strengthen the facial profile by augmenting a recessed or weak chin
  • Create a more natural balance between the size of  the chin and other facial features

The best way to determine if chin augmentation is right for you is to meet personally with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jonathan Fugo or one of his talented providers in our Med Spa during a complimentary, confidential consultation. During your initial consult, we will assess your facial features and explain all of your treatment options. Together, you will tailor an individualized plan to attain your desired outcome.

Chin Implant Surgery

Chin implant surgery is an outpatient facial plastic surgery procedure performed under local anesthesia with sedation. During the procedure, a small incision is made discreetly inside the mouth along the crease of the lower lip and gums, avoiding any external scars. A chin implant is then placed into the pocket, directly on the bone to create a more attractive jawline. The incision is meticulously stitched closed to promote optimal healing.

Chin surgery is usually completed in less than an hour, and you will go home shortly after your procedure.

Chin Surgery Recovery

You will experience some swelling and soreness following surgery. Dr. Fugo will prescribe medication to help you manage any discomfort, as well as possible antibiotics to prevent post-operative infection.

Recovery is generally brief, with expected return to work in no more than a few days. Returning to exercise and unrestricted activities is anticipated by 14 days post-operatively. Although the results from chin implant surgery are immediately noticeable, it will take time to fully see your outcome as all swelling completely dissipates over weeks to months.
