One of the most common issues our patients present to us is a double chin, weak chin, or soft chin, which can disrupt their self-esteem. Patients who are looking for a permanent solution to chisel their jawline may be good candidates for a chin augmentation. This procedure can help our patients achieve defined chins and angular jawlines.

A chiseled, angular face is a classic sign of attractiveness, beauty, and handsomeness, which is why this facial procedure is so popular. Read on to discover how a chin augmentation in Scottsdale from board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ross Stutman may be right for you.

What Is Chin Augmentation?

Chin augmentation is a targeted surgical cosmetic treatment that permanently removes fat from your chin. It is ideal for patients with a weak, soft, or undefined chin. Some patients may also benefit from the addition of a chin implant or fat grafting. With a chin implant procedure, a special implant custom-made for your face is inserted into your chin to add structure and volume to the jawline. With a fat grafting procedure, fat harvested from your own body is used to augment and volumize the chin and jawline.

In almost all cases, a chin augmentation results in a well-defined chin, a chiseled face, and a more angular jawline.

A Popular Procedure for Men and Women

Chin augmentation can help our male and female patients achieve transformative results.

Many of our male patients desire a more masculine-looking face, and a chin augmentation can help them achieve a sharp, chiseled jawline. For our female patients, a chin augmentation is a popular procedure to reduce a baby-faced appearance and to make the jawline more angular. In both cases, Dr. Stutman can use a chin implant to help restore balance and harmony to the facial features for a more beautiful aesthetic result.

Your Chin Augmentation Treatment Procedure

Your chin augmentation treatment in Scottsdale will take a few hours and be performed under anesthesia. As with all major procedures, we strongly recommend that you take the entire day off and that you arrange for a ride to and from the office.

Depending on your needs, Dr. Stutman will perform one or a combination of:

  • Chin liposuction
  • Jaw liposuction
  • Submental liposuction
  • Lower face liposuction
  • Chin augmentation via implant
  • Chin augmentation via fat grafting

No matter which procedure you opt for, Dr. Stutman will do his best to ensure incisions are carefully concealed. The surgical strategy for your chin augmentation will be designed based on the best procedure for your specific needs and with the safest outcome possible in mind.

Recovery and Results From Your Chin Augmentation

In most cases, patients can return to work after a few days. We recommend abstaining from exercise or vigorous activity for at least two weeks, though your recovery conditions may vary. For most patients, results from the chin augmentation procedure will be fully apparent after a few weeks and are almost always permanent.

To ensure you achieve a smooth procedure and recovery from your chin augmentation procedure, Dr. Stutman will provide a list of personalized guidelines for you to follow.

Will My Results From My Chin Augmentation Be Permanent?

This procedure will be permanent because most liposuction techniques involve permanent fat removal so that you can enjoy your results for the rest of your life. Once the fat is removed, it will never grow back. If you maintain a healthy diet, you can keep your results forever. Implants are also permanent but can be reversed if necessary. If you decide you need to correct your chin augmentation or add more volume to your chin or face, Dr. Stutman can help.
