Chin augmentation is a facial enhancement procedure that can help to enhance, reduce, or recontour the chin. Different techniques might be used, but the overall goal is to achieve an improved chin shape or size that optimizes your facial harmony.
This might be an excellent choice for a patient who feels their chin does not suit their face. This could be a chin that is too prominent or not prominent enough. Sometimes, the chin can be too narrow or too wide. All of the concerns of the chin can be treated to achieve an optimized facial contour. Talking to a highly qualified and expertly trained facial and reconstructive plastic surgeon like Dr. Chelsea Troiano can help you learn more about the procedure, and go far towards ensuring you get the best chin augmentation West Palm Beach has to offer.
In West Palm Beach chin augmentation is an excellent facial enhancement surgery for anyone who wants to see a change, improvement, or otherwise adjustment to their chin, jawline, or bottom facial structure.
When combined with other procedures, like a jawline reduction or a cheek augmentation, you can completely reinvent your facial profile and contour in a way that looks natural and compliments your aesthetic goals and overall appearance.
A chin augmentation procedure may be performed through surgical or non-surgical techniques, depending on every patient’s unique preferences. In the case of cosmetic chin surgery, patients will be placed under anesthesia and incisions will be made underneath the chin or inside of the mouth.
If patients want to increase the size or shape implants may be used. Dr. Troiano can also trim away excess bone to redefine the overall chin and jaw contour.
Ideal candidates for chin augmentation include adults who are well enough to undergo surgery and can take the time off from work, school, or other responsibilities to comfortably heal and recover.
Patients should not smoke or drink heavily, or be willing to change their habits, as these can increase the risk of complications during cosmetic surgery. Talking to Dr. Troiano can help you understand if chin augmentation is right for you and the best method of treatment per her recommendation.
Plastic surgery procedures like chin augmentation may have some discomfort or pain associated with them after the initial surgery. It’s common for some swelling to occur. During the actual procedure, local or general anesthesia is administered to ensure there is no pain during surgery.
Dr. Chelsea Troiano currently acts as the facial plastics fellow for Dr. Edward Farrior, MD, FACS in Tampa, FL. Dr. T graduated from Boston Medical Center as an Otolaryngology-Head and Neck surgeon and has made this area her specialty for over 5 years.
She has a honed aesthetic eye for special treatments, like facial feminization procedures, as she trained under Jeffrey Spiegel, MD, FACS. She understands how to achieve naturally-looking features that highlight the soft femininity so many patients seek.Schedule Consultation
A chin augmentation procedure is performed to bring the chin forward which can balance the lower face with the upper and middle parts of the face. This can include anything from changing the size, shape, structure, or small details of your chin. For permanent chin augmentation, an implant that is customized for the individual patient can be used. For a semi-permanent augmentation, a filler can be used.
A chin reduction, on the other hand, works to make the area smaller to create balance in the lower face. This is performed by making incisions on the inside of the mouth. This can be combined with jaw contouring surgery to narrow or contour the lower aspect of the face.
The cost of a chin augmentation will be calculated based on the cost of treatment for each patient individually. Different factors may go into achieving the final result and some patients may combine other treatments or opt to skip surgical solutions altogether. Ultimately, this will affect final costs.
