What is Chin Augmentation?
Chin enhancement surgery (or chin augmentation) is a popular aesthetic treatment that improves the look of the chin for Shenandoah Valley and surrounding area men and women who have a small and recessed chin. Often when a chin is recessed and sunken in, it can create an unappealing profile. Several aesthetic enhancements can be performed to enhance your chin, and one of the most effective procedures is using a silicone implant to reconstruct a stronger and more defined jawline. In Winchester, VA, plastic surgeon Dr. Matthew Karen performs many cosmetic improvements to consider for your chin augmentation. Aside from implants, noninvasive treatments, such as injectable fillers or KYBELLA®, can be used to add contour. Conversely, chin augmentation can also be performed for those that feel their chin is too large. In these instances, genioplasty should be considered. This surgery at Exclusively Faces Cosmetic Surgery and Medispa removes bone and cartilage to reshape the chin and jaw to a more appealing size.

What to Expect from Chin Augmentation
Prior to your chin augmentation, you will meet with double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Matthew Karen to discuss your desires, goals, and needs. After getting a better idea of your situation, he will make an implant suggestion and create your treatment plan. During this procedure, general anesthesia is used, or IV sedation in some cases. Dr. Karen will begin your procedure by making an incision in your chin. Through this incision, a pocket is created to secure the implant in its proper place, which involves shaving some of the tissue, cartilage, and bone to create grooves to hold your implant in position. The implant is placed through the incision and positioned over the bone, directly below your bottom lip. Sometimes, the incision can be created inside the crease in the lower lip where it meets your gumline. Both types of incisions help to conceal scars. Small sutures are used to close the incisions, and the bottom portion of your face will be wrapped with bandages. Your results will be immediately obvious, even though you'll likely experience some redness, swelling, and discoloration for a bit. Chin augmentation recovery roughly takes 1 – 3 weeks, during which exercise should be avoided.
