Do you ever look at yourself in the mirror or in photographs and feel as if your face is out of proportion? If so, it may be because your chin is too small compared to the rest of your face. Augmenting your chin either with a temporary material such as filler or a longer option like a silicone implant can be a quick, easy way to bring balance to your face.* Dr. David Sieber has done extensive training in both injectables and the latest surgical devices. He also has a deep understanding of anatomy and how changing one element of the face can completely re-proportion your entire facial contour. During your initial consultation, Dr. Sieber will discuss with you the ideal chin proportions for your face, and review exactly what you can expect from a non-surgical or surgical chin augmentation.

Chin augmentation surgery is commonly performed as a part of facial rejuvenation and in conjunction with a facelift, neck lift, upper and/or lower blepharoplasty or rhinoplasty surgery.

Chin Augmentation Technique

Chin augmentation surgery is performed as an outpatient surgery. If Dr. Sieber is using fillers, he will discuss the ideal filler for your needs during your initial consultation. During your chin augmentation with filler, the area will be numbed with a numbing agent and ice. Then, Dr. Sieber will inject the appropriate filler into the area with a very fine needle. If Dr. Sieber is using an implant, he will place a small incision underneath your chin through which he’ll position the silicone implant for optimal results.

Preparing for Chin Augmentation Surgery

As with any major surgery, all medications and supplements which cause an increased risk of bleeding should be stopped 2 weeks prior to surgery. Please see our list of medications and supplements to avoid. As always, make sure to check with your doctor before stopping any medications.

Recovery from Chin Augmentation Surgery

There are no drains or special bandages, but after surgery, you can expect some discomfort and swelling around your chin. This will begin to subside within 24-48 hours. You may experience temporary numbness in your lower lip as the nerves are stretched during surgery, but this will improve with time.*

FAQs

Q: Can I have fillers put in my chin to see what a chin implant might look like?

A: This is a tricky question. Dr. Sieber can certainly put fillers in your chin to “test out” whether or not a chin augmentation is for you. These will last for about 12 months.* However, it’s best to have chin augmentation surgery when there are no fillers in the area. Dr. Sieber will discuss the best option for you and why during your initial consultation.

Q: How long will my chin augmentation surgery last? Will I need to have the implant replaced?

A: The silicone implants used for chin augmentation are like the silicone implants used in breast augmentation surgery, but they are made of a firmer silicone. Once placed in the body, chin implants should be able to remain there without needing to be replaced.*

Q: Will the chin implant move after surgery?

A: The chin implant should not move after the surgery. Dr. Sieber will use a suture to secure the implant to make sure it is in the middle of your chin at the time of surgery. Over time your body will form a capsule around the implant to keep it in the proper position.*

Testimonials

I couldn’t be more pleased and excited about the refresh Dr. Sieber did on my face using a combination of botox and fillers. I had a baby a year ago and my face looked completely deflated. It felt to me that I looked like I had aged 5 years instantly by having a baby over 40. Dr. Sieber looked closely at my face and listened to my desires and fears in terms of the results I was seeking. I really liked that he took a conservative approach and followed up to check in and tweak things once the fillers and I had time to settle in.*

Dr. Sieber is a caring, friendly and talented doctor. I had two long consultations (free of charge) before scheduling my BBL (Brazilian butt lift). The staff and Dr. Sieber made me feel calm and relaxed the day of surgery. The results are amazing. Dr. Sieber understands a woman’s body and totally changed the shape of mine. I could not recommend him highly enough. I now go to him for my Botox and Juvederm.*

Dr. Sieber was fantastic throughout the entire process. From the beginning, he was patient with my questions and never made me feel pressured about making a decision. Once deciding that I was going to move forward with a breast augmentation, he made sure that I understood the process of the procedure and what I could expect post-surgery. I could not be happier with the results!*

Dr. Sieber is the best. I interviewed with numerous doctors. He pays close attention to detail. He called and checked on me and my results on a regular basis. My tummy procedure exceeded my expectation.*

Dr Sieber was very kind, knowledgeable and patient. He was able to answer all of my questions and put me completely at ease during the consultation as well as during the actual procedure. He made sure that I understood each part of the process which went a long way in alleviating my fears…after all, this is my face!*

Dr. Sieber is attentive, responsive, and well trained. I had seen him for Botox and filler and he had done both without any pain or bruising and more importantly the results were fabulous. He has met with me on time at each appointment. He communicates what to expect, made sure I was comfortable throughout the procedure, checked on my healing every day post procedure. He couldn’t be more delightful not more talented. I had seen other plastic surgeons for in office treatments over the past decade and Dr. Sieber is at the top of the list in terms of delivering the desired outcome and high quality care.*
