A chin augmentation is a procedure that addresses the recession or flatness of the chin by adding volume to it. Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Amir Moradi specializes in chin implants that are typically constructed out of synthetic materials and shaped according to each patient's needs and desires. Once the implant is complete, the jaw line will show more visible signs of definition and the overall chin appearance will be more full. This is an ideal procedure for those who are experiencing signs of aging or are in need of an overall aesthetic boost. To learn more, call Moradi MD in San Diego, CA, to schedule a consultation.
During chin augmentation, the implant is positioned over the bone below the lips. A pocket is created, which will hold the prosthesis in place. Sometimes the bone is shaved to create a groove for the implant. Incisions are commonly placed in two areas that can easily conceal scars – on the underside of the chin or inside the lip, just between where the lower lip meets the gum. The results after this procedure are almost always positive for patients. An experience surgeon will create subtle results, yet dramatic enough to make a significant improvement to a person’s self esteem.

"I met with Tatyana for an initial consultation. She listened to me intently to my concerns about my wrinkles on my forehead, cheeks and around my lips. Also, brown spots on my face. She suggested the treatments that would give me the best results. During the procedures, I felt confident with her skills. She displays empathy and communicates in detail about the process. I saw results after my peel on the brown spots. There was amazing results on my wrinkles from the laser resurfacing. The treatments were successful and I booked other treatments too."- L.T. / Yelp / Jul 15, 2021

Chin implant surgery may use either a local anesthesia or general anesthesia depending on the surgical case. The procedure is performed in an accredited surgical facility. It may last up to 2 hours. A liquid diet is usually recommended in the first 3 days to avoid any pressure around the chin as the sutures are sensitive until healed. The patient is allowed only light activities until the second week. There will be numbness on the area surrounding the implant. While this is normal, the sensation will gradually improve as weeks pass. As with any implant surgery, it generally takes up to a full year for the implant to settle into position and create a final outcome that is soft, natural and normal in feeling.
