Chin surgery is a cosmetic procedure that adjusts the size or position of the chin to refine jawline contours. With the help of chin surgery, Arlington patients can achieve a more aesthetic facial profile.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Tran often performs chin surgery for patients who wish to resolve the appearance of a double chin or a weak chin. He is skilled and experienced in chin augmentation surgery, as well as other facial plastic surgeries that can bring balance to the facial features.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Chin Augmentation?
People with a small or receded chin, a poorly defined neck line, or an overly rounded face may be good candidates for chin augmentation. People who are looking to improve overall facial balance and proportion may also be benefit from this procedure. Dr. Tran will gladly meet with you to discuss whether you are a good candidate for chin augmentation surgery.
Can Chin Augmentation Be Combined with Other Procedures?
The chin is a prominent facial feature, so chin augmentation alone can significantly improve facial harmony. However, many chin surgery patients want to enhance additional facial features. In these cases, Dr. Tran may recommend combining chin surgery with other cosmetic facial surgeries, such as:
- Rhinoplasty – Chin augmentation is often combined with rhinoplasty (nose surgery). Bringing the nose and jawline into balance can transform your facial profile.
- Submental liposuction – Chin augmentation is frequently combined with submental liposuction. This procedure eliminates unwanted fat from the area below the chin to define the jawline and enhance chin augmentation results.
- Facelift – Some patients elect to combine chin augmentation with a facelift. A facelift can remove jowls that may be obscuring the jawline, along with eliminating excess facial tissue and tightening skin to create a youthful, invigorated, and energetic appearance.
Since facial structure and profile differ from person to person, Dr. Tran will discuss with you what procedure or combination of procedures may best suit your specific needs. Dr. Tran will assess your problem areas and listen to your aesthetic goals before making any recommendations.
Is This Procedure Right For Me?
The shape and position of the chin can have a powerful impact on overall facial aesthetics. When the chin is too small or recessed, it not only affects the jaw line and facial profile, it can also make the neck look fleshy, the face appear overly round, and a normal-sized nose look too large.
Even subtle changes to the size and projection of the chin can bring about dramatic improvements in facial balance and harmony. Chin implant (chin augmentation) is an excellent option to enhance chin size, shape, and position, most commonly by inserting implants to bring the chin forward. In rare cases, a severely recessed chin may be improved with a surgical procedure to reposition the bone. Often, chin augmentation is combined with other facial cosmetic procedures for even better results, including rhinoplasty (nose surgery), neck lift, facelift, and liposuction to sculpt and shape the neck.
