Chin augmentation plays a big role in the symmetry of the face and neck. Like many other enhancing procedures, chin augmentation helps to balance the profile and strengthen a weak chin to complement the face. This procedure may be combined with an extended neck sculpture or face and neck lift (through common incision). With Dr. Kotler’s years of unparalleled experience, he carefully examines the patient to customize the implant to the patient’s dimensions and structure. The implant is placed through a small incision under the chin.

Chin Augmentation Anesthesia
General anesthesia is administered by a physician-anesthesiologist specializing in facial procedures. Under anesthesia, there is no pain and no awareness. An intravenous is started and you “drift off to sleep.”
Chin Augmentation Recovery
Professional care is optional. If you choose to recover at home, someone must be with you the first night. As with all of our procedures, precise instructions, direction sheets and a “care package” of supplies and medications are provided.
Stitches are removed from the hidden under-the-chin incision beginning on the 4th, 5th or 6th day after surgery. “Steri-strips” or a “butterfly” dressing may be applied at that time for wound support for an additional several days.
5 to 7 days. If there is bruising, it can be concealed with make-up.
Numbness about the chin usually begins to subside. The incision still feels lumpy which is perfectly normal. Lower lip stiffness which may be present initially after surgery, begins to abate.
Within 3 months after surgery, the hairline incision under the chin has matured to become fine, soft and nearly invisible. For the first 6 months, those patients with dark skin should use a sunscreen to protect the incision, particularly during the summer.
