Structuring the Face as it Should Be

Whether you’re looking to dramatically enhance or change the shape, structure, or definition of your chin/jawline or to correct the symmetry of your jaw, our renowned Chicago plastic surgical team utilizes the most advanced imaging technology to produce long-lasting, substantial improvements in these areas. The result is a more attractive and harmonious appearance. 

The Beautify at AMS Approach

to Chin Augmentation

At Beautify at AMS in Chicago, chin augmentation is approached differently. We design custom silicone implants that suit each patient’s unique anatomy and aesthetic goals and then complement those implants with dermal filler injections (Sculptra®, Bellafill®, Juvéderm®, or Restylane®) to achieve additional sculpting, contouring, and squaring of the jaw.

Surgical Details for Chin Augmentation

    • Procedure is performed with the patient under mild IV sedation
    • A local anesthetic is used to numb treatment areas as well
    • The incision for a chin implant is created either within the mouth or under the chin
    • The incision for a jaw implant is created near the wisdom teeth
    • The procedure takes 1-3 hours if being done as a stand-alone surgery

    Recovery and Results

    After jaw and chin augmentation, you can expect swelling and bruising. The swelling may last up to six weeks, but will subside more and more each day. You may also have tightness, pressure, difficulty chewing, and/or tenderness in the treated area during recovery, which can last several weeks. In some cases, a special liquid diet is recommended for one week. Because strenuous activities may prolong swelling, we recommend avoiding any kind of exercise for a minimum of three weeks following the procedure. Taking approximately one week off of normal activities is average for this surgery. 

    You will see early results fairly quickly as swelling subsides. While it takes 9-12 months for completely final results to be visible, most of the finalized outcome can be seen at approximately three months.

    What is the silicone for a chin implant like?

    The silicone used in our chin implants feels very much like natural chin tissue and has been engineered to stay in position once placed. The implants come in a variety of shapes and sizes to best suit your specific facial structure, and will feel completely natural once outcome is finalized.

    What other procedures are done with jaw and chin augmentation?

    Chin and jawline surgery is typically performed in conjunction with other facial surgery procedures such as a facelift or a neck lift in order to achieve the best outcome possible.
