About Chin Augmentation

Dr. Sean Kelishadi is a talented Plastic Surgeon who performs chin augmentation at SSK Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach, CA to improve the shape of the chin. Dr. Kelishadi understands that the chin is one of the most dominant facial features, so if you feel self-conscious about the shape of your chin, it can prevent you from living your life with total confidence. For this reason, Dr. Kelishadi is highly-skilled in a variety of chin procedures that will re-contour your chin to the profile you desire. Our practice also offers silicone implants to enhance the shape of the chin and define the jawline. Other nonsurgical treatments such as dermal fillers may also be combined to further enhance the appearance you wish to obtain. 

Ideal Candidates

Chin augmentation is a common procedure for both men and women. If you are unhappy with the size and look of your chin or feel you have an undefined profile, chin augmentation can redefine the lower portion of your face and neck. It is also very common for some of our patients to combine rhinoplasty with their chin augmentation procedure. This combined approached ensures that the features of the face are balanced and in proportion.

Surgical Technique

During chin augmentation, general anesthesia will be administered and an incision made just under the chin. A pocket is first created to hold the implant in place, which involves shaving some of the bone to create grooves to keep the implant in position. The implant is inserted through the incision and is placed over the bone below the lower lip. In some cases, the incision can be made inside the lip where the lower lip meets the gumline. Both incisional points help to conceal scars. Small sutures are used to close the incisions and the chin will be wrapped with bandages.

What to Expect

Chin augmentation surgery yields immediate results, which can be very gratifying for our patients. Facial swelling will occur after surgery, along with some bruising, but this is temporary. If chin augmentation was performed alone, the recovery period lasts about 2 weeks. Strenuous activity should be avoided during this time period. Whether you had chin augmentation to create a stronger jawline, or had chin reduction to reduce it, you will love your results. This particular surgery has very high success rates and under the hands of our skilled surgeon, your appearance will look natural and proportionate.
