Chin Augmentation in Philadelphia

Many patients in the New Jersey and Philadelphia area complain that their chin or jaw line is too small for the face. When one has a lack of chin projection, the nose may appear larger or the neck may appear unrefined. Psychologically, a weak chin/jaw line may also give false perceptions of weakness or lack of strength. Patients with weak chin projection also are not satisfied with their profile. For these reasons, many patients will seek chin augmentation surgery to improve the appearance of the chin.

The benefits of chin augmentation surgery

Creating a more appealing balance between your chin and other features not only makes your face more attractive, but it also has some added benefits. The subtle increase in volume creates a more sculpted, youthful neckline. Your jawline is more refined, your nose appears smaller, and your other features look more attractive.

How does chin augmentation work?

During surgery, an implant is placed through a small incision under the chin. The implant increases chin projection, providing a stronger and more aesthetic appearance and profile. Chin augmentation is also commonly combined with facial and neck liposuction, rhinoplasty (nose job), and rhytidectomy (facelift), affording remarkable results.

Which chin implant will create the best result?

One of the most critical points in a beautiful result is selecting the perfect implant for your facial structure. Dr. Corrado has an eye for balance and will advise you about the implant that will achieve a result that looks beautifully natural and will bring your features into proportion.

Am I a candidate for chin augmentation?

If you are unhappy with any of the following facial structure issues, you may be a good candidate for chin augmentation surgery:

  • A receding chin
  • A small chin 
  • A smaller jaw structure
  • A slope from chin to neck
  • Your nose appears larger than it should
  • Your facial balance is off, appearing top-heavy

Chin Augmentation and Implants Facts

The surgical goal is to increase chin projection and provide a stronger profile.

The procedure

The procedure is performed via a small incision either underneath the chin.  An implant, similar to the consistency of a normal chin, is placed in front of the bone to increase the projection of the chin. The implant is secured, and the incision is sutured closed.

After the procedure

All patients are sent home after their procedure and are given a set of post procedure instructions to follow. The patient will follow up the next day in the office for a post procedure check, and again on the seventh day after surgery for suture removal.


Some swelling and bruising can be expected and usually subsides within the first few weeks after surgery. Mild temporary numbness of the lower lip is also possible. Mild discomfort is controlled with pain medications.

Alternate procedures

Fat grafting or dermal filler injections to the chin area can also help to augment the chin and jawline.


The procedure is performed under IV sedation or general anesthesia.

Length of time

Typically, the procedure takes about an hour to complete.
