About Chin Augmentation

Mentoplasty or chin augmentation is a popular cosmetic treatment that improves the look of the jawline and chin. Often, when a chin lacks in shape and size, it can cause an undefined jawline. If you experience this issue, chin augmentation can improve the appearance of your facial structure. To enhance the jawline and define your profile, Dr. Michelle Eagan can place a silicone implant. At New Orleans Plastic Surgery in Louisiana, Dr. Eagan offers many treatment options for chin enhancement. In addition to implants, she can use nonsurgical treatments, such as dermal fillers. To learn more about both treatment options, we encourage you to read through the rest of the page and schedule an appointment to discuss chin augmentation treatment options.

Is Chin Augmentation For You?

If you feel unhappy with the look of your chin or you dislike that it gives you an undefined profile, chin augmentation can improve the lower part of your face and neck. During your consultation, Dr. Eagan will discuss your cosmetic concerns and determine if this procedure is right for you. In some cases, we may combine chin augmentation with other facial treatments, such as rhinoplasty. By combining multiple treatments, we can help balance your features, which enhances the overall beauty of your facial structure.

Surgical Technique

At the beginning of your procedure, Dr. Eagan will start by administering general anesthesia or IV sedation. Next, she makes an incision underneath your chin. After making the incision, a groove or pocket is created to keep the implant in place. This part of the surgery includes shaving the bone and cartilage to create grooves, which will help hold your implant in position. Once the pocket is created, we gently insert the implant through the incision and position it on top of the bone. Usually, the placement is directly below your lower lip. In some cases, we may create the incision inside the lip near your gumline. Both types of incisions help to conceal scars. To close your incisions, we use tiny sutures, then your lower face is wrapped with medical garments.

What to Expect

Right after your chin augmentation, you should see immediate results. Even though swelling and discoloration will occur, your symptoms will start to subside in the next six weeks. At first, you may need to eat soft foods or liquids, and avoid any strenuous activities. Dr. Eagan will provide detailed aftercare instructions to help your incisions heal. Chin augmentation surgery has historically high success rates and under the hands of a talented surgeon, like Dr. Eagan, your results will look proportionate and refined.

How much does chin augmentation cost?

After developing your treatment plan, Dr. Eagan will begin to estimate the total cost for your chin augmentation. Your costs depend on the implant type, anesthesia, facility costs, and surgical fees. Chin implant surgery provides long-lasting and beautiful results so it's important to concentrate on finding a doctor you trust with experience and proven results, like Dr. Eagan. At New Orleans Plastic Surgery, we accept several payment methods, and we can help you find low-interest financing.
