Introduction to Chin Augmentation

Dr. Zuckerman can help you correct the aesthetic effects of a recessed, weak chin to bring your facial features into better balance with one of two possible cosmetic surgery techniques. In the first, Dr. Zuckerman places a silicone chin implant, and in the second, he moves the jaw bone slightly forward in what is known medically as osteo genioplasty.

Am I A Candidate For Chin Augmentation?



Chin augmentation is available for patients of most ages, and candidates need to be obtain medical clearance to undergo general anesthesia. However, a patient does need to be fully developed before this surgery can be performed.

Chin Augmentation in Detail

Chin Implants

One method Dr. Zuckerman may employ to help you offset a recessed chin is to place place a silicone implant through a small incision under the chin or inside the mouth. Dr. Zuckerman then positions the implant in front of the jawbone. This procedure can typically be completed in one hour or less.

Osteo Genioplasty

Dr. Zuckerman also performs osteo genioplasty, or sliding genioplasty, surgery, which corrects a recessed chin without using an implant. In this procedure, Dr. Zuckerman cuts a piece of bone from the lower border of the mandible, also known as osteotomy, and advances it forward to increase the projection of the chin. This technique can also be used in reverse for chin reduction surgery.

Patients who undergo either of these technique are typically highly satisfied with their results. However, osteo genioplasty eliminates the possibility of the chin implant moving and in Dr. Zuckerman’s opinion, is the better procedure. However, he is happy to perform either procedure and will discuss which one may be right for you at your initial cosmetic surgery consultation.

You may undergo chin augmentation surgery in Dr. Zuckerman’s in-office AAAASF-accredited operating rooms. Accreditation from the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF) signifies the highest standard of care in a fully equipped surgical environment. Dr. Zuckerman and his highly trained team of professionals will do their utmost to ensure your privacy, discretion, and comfort in achieving the best surgical outcome possible for you.
