What is a Chin Augmentation?
Mentoplasty (known as chin augmentation) is a highly sought-after cosmetic treatment that improves the look of the chin for patients with a recessed chin. Often when a chin is recessed and sunken in, it can create a weak profile. Several aesthetic enhancements can be performed to enhance your chin, and one of the most common procedures is inserting an implant to create a stronger jawline and a more defined profile. In El Paso, TX, cosmetic surgeon Dr. Reo Pugao offers free facial surgery consultations to help you understand the options to consider for augmenting your chin. If you would like to enhance your profile with a stronger jawline, contact SkinSational MedSpa to schedule your free chin augmentation consultation.

How is Chin Augmentation Performed?
Ideal candidates for chin augmentation are displeased with the shape and appearance of their chin, are in good general health, and have realistic expectations of what the surgery can accomplish. Dr. Reo Pugao can help you understand what results can be reasonably expected and what the procedure and recovery period will look like. Should you elect to receive a chin augmentation, the procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure. An incision is made under your chin. In this incision, a surgical pocket is formed to secure the implant in its proper place, which involves reducing some of the tissue, cartilage, and bone to create grooves to hold your implant in position. The implant is placed through the incision and positioned over the bone, just below your bottom lip. In some cases, the incision can be created inside the crease in the lower lip where it connects to your gumline. Both incision points help to hide scars. Thin sutures are used to safely close the incisions, and your lower face will be wrapped with bandages. Following surgery, there will be some redness, swelling, and bruising. It may take around two weeks to heal, but the results should be almost immediately obvious, which is very thrilling for our patients.
