Chin Augmentation

A small chin commonly makes the nose appear relatively larger and the neck softer because the jawline is ill-defined. Whether your chin has always been small or whether it receded over time, Dr. Chaboki can give your face balance with chin augmentation surgery. Washington, DC and Maryland-area patients who have a "weak chin" or a double chin often think they need a neck lift for their sagging neck or rhinoplasty because their nose appears large. As a facial specialist, Dr. Chaboki understands when chin augmentation can provide the improvements they desire.

Dr. Chaboki specializes exclusively in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. To learn more about chin augmentation and other procedures to minimize the signs of aging, request your cosmetic consultation with him online, or call his office at (202) 741-3409.

Improving Facial Balance

Dr. Chaboki customizes each procedure to the patient's unique facial structure and aesthetic goals. For long-term results, he often recommends silicone chin implants for his Washington, DC and Maryland area patients, either as an isolated procedure or in conjunction with a facelift, neck liposuction, or rhinoplasty. Silicone chin implants are specifically designed for the lower jaw and come in a variety of sizes and shapes.

Procedure

Chin implants, made of solid silicone, are placed on top of the lower jawbone through a small incision hidden in a natural crease under the chin. Chin implant surgery takes about an hour and is normally performed via IV sedation or general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure. Patients return to a normal diet after surgery. Patients may return to work within a few days. Most swelling generally subsides by about 7 days after surgery.
