Chin Augmentation

Face is divided into three parts with chin being in lower 1/3rd. For facial harmony and aesthetics it is important that all three parts are proportionate. But sometimes a small chin/weak chin can disrupt that harmony.

Retruded chin or less defined jawline can be a cause of concern for both men and women. This harmony can be restored by chin augmentation.

It is procedure that helps in defining the lower third of face and contours it to rest of the face that can add significant boost to self- esteem and a high satisfaction rate.


You are the right candidate if you: Have a short chin

Are a healthy male or female

Have a long nose or a bulky neck

A simple test is to place finger straight down from your lips. Chin should almost touch your finger. If it is short then having a chin implant will add projection to the chin and balance facial features.

Depending on your facial assessment by Dr. Anmol Chugh, the best option suited for you will be selected.

Fillers (Fat grafting & Dermal fillers) – Fat/ Filler is put under the chin to give you a projected look.

Genioplasty – A complex procedure that involves forward movement of jaw bone.

Chin implants – An implant is placed through a small incision under your chin or inside your mouth.

Chin implant surgery is done under general anaesthesia. A small incision is giving either under chin or inside the mouth where gum and lower lip meet so the scar is hidden. Dr. Chugh prefers the hidden incision inside mouth as it avoids any tell- tale sign of surgery. A pocket of adequate size is created and implant is put after ensuring customization according to individual’s chin. After securing implant, incision is sutured and a bandage is put on chin which remains in place for two to three days. Surgery usually takes one to three hours.

Chin implants give good definition to your jawline and it’s safe. Some swelling and bruising subsides by around 4-6 weeks. Implants are tailored according to requirement of an individual face.

Patients after surgery will have swelling and discomfort that usually subsides in four or five days. Antibiotics and analgesics are usually prescribed for 5 days along with oral mouth wash for hygiene.

For first few days after surgery, a diet of oral liquids, soft foods is advised. You can resume your normal activity after one week and heavy/ strenuous work after 3- 4 weeks to ensure complete recovery. Most of the swelling is gone by the end of 6 weeks and complete results being appreciable after 3 months.

Dr. Chugh does complete facial assessment so that face symmetry is maintained. Sometimes to give good results especially in case of heavy neck it can be combined with neck liposuction or a Rhinoplasty/ nose job.
