"Dr. Kelishadi is amazing!!! He made me feel so comfortable! I had Breast Augmentation May 26th. I'm three months out and loving my results! I was very self conscious about my chest. My breasts shrunk due to breast feeding. I didn't even want to change in front of my husband. (he loved them no matter what lol) and now I am feeling so great about it! He said he's even noticed a boost in my confidence level. I love it! i feel good..i feel sexy. I never thought I would actually go through with getting this done, but Dr. Kelishadi and his staff helped me with every step of the way. He was very caring and checked up on me after surgery. His staff was very nice as well. All so helpful! I highly recommend him!"- J.V. / Yelp / Jul 27, 2017

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.
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.
