Chin Augmentation

Maxillofacial Surgery

Chin Augmentation

You will have x-rays taken of your face and chin. The surgeon will use these x-rays to find out what part of the chin to operate on.

When you need only an implant to round out the chin:

You may be under general anesthesia (asleep and pain-free). Or you may get medicine to numb the area, along with a medicine that will make you relaxed and sleepy.

A cut is made, either inside the mouth or outside under the chin. A pocket is created in front of the chin bone and under the muscles.
