Introduction to Chin Augmentation

Dr. Zuckerman can help you correct the aesthetic effects of a recessed chin or a prominent nose with two different cosmetic surgical techniques. In the first, Dr. Zuckerman will place a chin implant, and in the second, he will move the jaw bone itself slightly forward.

Am I A Candidate For Chin Augmentation?



You may be a good candidate for chin augmentation if you have a recessed, or weak, chin or a prominent nose. Chin augmentation is available for patients of most ages, but patients do tend to be younger than those for face lift surgery for example. Generally, a patient needs to have finished developing before this surgery can be performed.

Chin Implants

Dr. Zuckerman can help you correct the aesthetic effects of a recessed chin or a prominent nose. They can be put into better balance with chin implants. Dr. Zuckerman places the implants made of silicone elastomer through an incision made underneath the chin or inside the mouth. The implant is positioned in front of the jawbone, and can ultimately give the entire face an improved facial contour. Chin implant surgery is often performed on an outpatient basis and completed in about an 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. He is happy to perform either procedure and will discuss which one may be right for you at your initial cosmetic surgery consultation.

Facial implants procedures can be performed at Dr. Zuckerman’s accredited surgical operating room located inside his office in midtown Manhattan. Certified by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF), this fully-equipped operatory adheres to the highest standards of care. In addition, it offers patients convenient, private, and discreet care.

Risks of Chin Augmentation



Dr. Zuckerman is a highly skilled and experienced plastic surgeon, and his team will do everything possible to minimize risks. His goal is to see that your surgery and recovery process is safe, smooth, and effective, overseen by only the most experienced and well-trained medical professionals. Chin augmentation is overwhelmingly safe when performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon, but a few of the possible, although rare, surgical complications include:

• Implant translation or rotation (movement from original placement site)
• Injection of the implant (rare)
• Asymmetry
For more information on possible risks of this procedure, you may visit the American Society of Plastic Surgeons page or The American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery page, in both of which Dr. Zuckerman is an active member.
