Enhance Your Facial Proportions With Chin Augmentation in Thousand Oaks

A strong, well-defined chin is a desirable trait for men and women alike. However, the majority of us aren’t fortunate enough to naturally have a sculpted chin and jawline, and many individuals have underdeveloped or recessed chins, which can weaken the profile appearance and disrupt facial harmony. At Elevate Plastic Surgery, we offer a straightforward procedure called chin augmentation, which can help you enhance the contours and definition of your lower face.

What Is Chin Augmentation?

Chin augmentation is a cosmetic surgical procedure that involves the use of customized implants to enhance the shape, size, and definition of the chin and jawline.

Chin implants can be made of various materials, including silicone, polyethylene, and Gore-Tex. During the procedure, these implants are inserted through incisions made under the chin or inside the mouth.

What to Expect During Your Chin Augmentation Surgery

If you’re considering chin augmentation, the first step will be to sit down for a consultation with Dr. Rahgozar. During this meeting, he will ask you questions to ensure that you’re a good candidate for the procedure.

He’ll also listen to your specific aesthetic goals for your chin augmentation and work with you to decide on the specific type, size, and shape of your chin implant.

Dr. Rahgozar will make an incision either under your chin or inside your mouth and create a small pocket in the chin area, which he will use to insert your customized implant. Once the implant has been properly positioned, he will close the incision with sutures and apply bandages as necessary. You’ll then need to be monitored for a couple of hours after the surgery before a friend or family member can take you home.

Chin Augmentation Recovery

Immediately following your chin augmentation surgery, you may experience some mild discomfort, bruising, or swelling in the treated area. Dr. Rahgozar will prescribe you pain medication to minimize your discomfort. It’s also wise to sleep with your head elevated for the first week or two of recovery.

Most patients can return to work and resume their normal routines approximately seven to 10 days after chin augmentation surgery. However, it’s best to wait at least three or four weeks to participate in strenuous physical activity.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Chin Augmentation?

If you’re an adult who’s unsatisfied with the appearance of your chin, you could be a good candidate for chin augmentation in Thousand Oaks. The procedure is a popular choice for individuals with a weak or receding chin who would like to enhance the prominence and definition of their chin and jawline.

In some cases, chin augmentation can also be a good option for people dealing with a “double chin” appearance. To be an ideal candidate for chin augmentation, it’s also important that you’re in good physical health, not currently pregnant or breastfeeding, and a non-smoker or willing to stop smoking temporarily.
