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.
"Dr Eagan did my breast aug in March 2020. I searched for months before selecting a doctor and the reason I chose her is because her personality is outstanding!! She is by far the kindest doctor I have ever met!!! She is not a doctor that will put too much on your body if your body can not handle it. I told her what I wanted and she went above and beyond to make sure I was happy with my results! I am 4 months post op and I swear I fall in love with my procedure results all over again every single day! We are already discussing lip injections because she is just absolutely fantastic! Always available when I needed her and every appointment she has always greeted me as a friend and made sure I had a great appointment!! Wish I could give more stars to her!! Make sure to check her out because you will NOT regret it"- S.S. / Google / Jul 23, 2020
"Life changing I’ve been trying to get a breast reduction since 2018 and the moment I walked into Dr.Eagan’s office it just felt right. Dr.Eagan is truly the kindest person I’ve ever met. She explained the process of the surgery and post op care. One of the most important things is she cared about what cup size I wanted and she delivered. I went from a F cup to a B /C cup which is exactly what I wanted. Also Dr.Eagan called me the night before and the night after surgery to check on me. When I show people my before and after pictures all they can say is “Wow! What’s the Doctor’s name? Seriously, my back pain is gone and I feel more comfortable with exercising, sleeping, and wearing different clothing. Also, Miss. Yvonne is the sweetest she worked diligently to make sure all my documentation was in order to send to my insurance for approval and explained any questions or concerns I had regarding payment. If you are looking for a plastic surgeon that will provide excellent quality and has great bedside manner. Dr.Eagan is your person. Dr.Eagan and her staff are truly professional and amazing 10/10 highly recommend🙌🏾"- B.L. / Google / Mar 11, 2023

"Dr. Eagan was extremely pleasant as well as her staff! Dr Eagan made sure I was very well prepared for my surgery. Everything was well planned and organized. All the workers at the hospital made me feel so safe and calm being that I was very scared. I haven’t felt 1 ounce of pain since I had my surgery on yesterday and very little discomfort jus like dr Eagan promised. I initially didn’t want any photos posted but when I saw how amazing dr Eagan did on my breast reduction I really wanted her to post them! My reaction was like you wouldn’t believe, I was so excited! I highly recommend dr Eagan."- L.H. / Yelp / Mar 02, 2023
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.
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.
