What Can a Chin Implant Do for You?
Chin augmentation is a surgical procedure medically known as mentoplasty. In performing this procedure, Dr. Margoles uses implants made from medical-grade silicone, which she attaches to your jawbone to provide more projection.
Dr. Margoles often recommends chin implants for rhinoplasty patients. Simultaneously enhancing your chin and nose can improve your overall facial proportions.
Chin Augmentation in Greenwich, CT: What Happens During the Procedure?
Dr. Margoles performs chin augmentation procedures in a state-of-the-art operating facility while patients are under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with IV sedation. If you choose to pair chin augmentation with rhinoplasty, Dr. Margoles will complete both procedures during the same visit to the operating suite.
First, Dr. Margoles makes a small incision inside your mouth or under your chin, which she will use to carefully position the implant on your jawbone and secure it in place. Then, she will suture the incisions closed and apply bandages, if needed.
Chin augmentation is a brief procedure that takes about 30 to 60 minutes. Dr. Margoles may need more time if you opt to pair this with other surgeries. After spending a few hours in recovery, most patients can return home to rest on the same day as their procedure.
Recovery After Chin Implants
Most patients recover quickly after chin augmentation. Patients with a job that requires low activity levels may be ready to return to work within a week. Mild swelling may occur for a few days. Patients may also experience some tenderness or bruising. Pain medications can increase comfort during the recovery process. Dr. Margoles will provide detailed instructions for caring for your incisions after surgery. We’ll ask you to return to our office a few times during recovery so Dr. Margoles can monitor healing and answer any questions.

Patients considering chin surgery should be in good overall health. We don’t recommend smoking for post-surgical patients, as it can slow healing and increase the likelihood of complications.

Frequently Asked Questions About Chin Augmentation in Greenwich, CT
Chin implants provide shape and projection to the chin until they are removed. For many patients, chin implants are permanent and will provide lifelong enhancement to the face.
Most patients experience little to no scarring after chin augmentation. When possible, Dr. Margoles places chin implants through an incision inside the mouth, which leaves no visible scarring on the face, neck, or chin. Dr. Margoles can also place implants with an incision under the chin. This choice hides the resulting scars and allows for discreet healing.
Chin implants consist of medical-grade silicone. They are firm and stiff, with a feeling like a natural chin bone.
The cost of chin augmentation can vary. To ensure accurate pricing, Dr. Margoles provides a quote after talking with you about your goals. Schedule a consultation to receive accurate and personalized pricing information for your desired procedure.
