About Chin Augmentation
Chin enhancement surgery (or chin augmentation) is a highly sought after cosmetic treatment that improves the look of the jawline and chin for patients with a recessive chin, or one they feel is overbearing. Often when a chin lacks shape and size, it can create an undefined profile. Both surgical and nonsurgical chin augmentation can be performed to highlight your chin, and one of the most common procedures is inserting an implant to reconstruct a more prominent jawline and a more appealing profile. New Orleans, LA plastic surgeon Dr. Jules Walters offers many cosmetic improvements to consider for your chin enhancement. In addition to implants, which are manufactured in various sizes and shapes, noninvasive augmentations such as fillers or Kybella can help as well.
Chin Augmentation Ideal Candidates
Chin enhancement (augmentation) is an aesthetic option for men as well as women. If you are self-conscious because of the shape and appearance of your chin and do not like the undefined profile it offers, this cosmetic enhancement can improve the lower portion of your face and neck. It's also fairly common for our patients to get a rhinoplasty when they have their chin augmentation procedure. This blend of enhancements offers great reassurance for the prominent structures of your face to be proportionate and balanced.

"BBL & lipo: Dr Walters was very kind af professional - Ever since I was a teenager I could never properly pants, my upper body Is like a medium lower body more an xl. I used to cry in front of my closet feeling fat and upset. So now at the age 28 after so many years of not feeling comfy in shorts dresses and skirts, I've finally made the decision to pursue lipo and while at it transfer some fat to my upper buttocks. My surgery happened 2 days ago and it's honestly a tough recovery so far. I did my surgery in New Orleans which is where I live. I realized going abroad and thinking I'd save money wasn't true. I got to go home the same day in my comfortable space with the people I love taking care of me. So far I'm pretty swollen so I know it will take a while before seeing permanent results. Dr Walters was very kind af professional, very quick in response over text for the few additional questions I had. The nurses were sweet, on the way home, we got hit by a car, thank god my husband and I are both safe. But it was traumatizing having to deal with that while still being gone on anesthesia. The first night I woke up to pee like 5 times and I could make it to the bathroom alone. I had to vomit each time I would move around even with the nausea pills and the patch behind my ear. But today I got to shower and take off my pads. I slept a lot and tried to eat a bit more. Hopefully each day will be a bit better! The pictures in red outfit are my before pictures."- N. / RealSelf / Dec 06, 2019

Chin Augmentation Surgical Technique
During this procedure, local anesthesia, sedation by IV, or general anesthesia will be administered. The incision is carefully made just under your chin. In this incision, a pocket is surgically made to keep the implant device in its proper place. The chin implant is placed through the incision and positioned on top of the bone, directly below your lower lip. Sometimes, the incision can be created inside the crease in the lower lip where it connects to your gumline. Regardless, both help to conceal scars. Thin sutures are used to connect and close the incisions, and your chin will be wrapped with bandages.
What to Expect with Chin Augmentation
Chin enhancement treatment creates immediate gratifying results, which can be pretty exciting for our patients. Even though redness, swelling, and discoloration will be present after your surgery, this only lasts a short while. For many, chin augmentation takes about 1 – 3 weeks of healing. Heavy exercise should not be performed while in this recovery window. This particular surgery has historically high success rates, and by having it under the hands of a trained surgeon like Dr. Walters, your outcome will be proportionate and refined.
