Chin Augmentation for Enhanced Facial Harmony
A chin augmentation (also known as chin implant surgery or mentoplasty) is designed to restore balance to your facial profile and strengthen a “weak” or under-defined chin. In this procedure, a specially selected implant is placed to add the volume and create the contour you’ve always wanted. Since the nose and chin are so closely related in facial proportions, a chin augmentation surgery may also help restore balance by helping the nose to appear smaller. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Brandon Richland offers meticulous artistry to enhance your facial harmony with stunning and natural-looking results and strives to deliver the best chin augmentation Newport Beach has to offer.

Exploring Your Candidacy
Chin Augmentation is an excellent treatment option for patients who feel their chin is under-defined or disproportionate to their surrounding facial features.
Patients should be healthy enough to undergo surgery, with no underlying health conditions that may impair healing. Patients who smoke will need to quit several weeks before their procedure to minimize the risk of complications.
You may be a candidate for chin enhancement if:
Chin Augmentation effectively enhances the size or shape of your chin to complement your overall facial structure.
When performed by a skilled and experienced plastic surgeon, chin augmentation can significantly improve your appearance as a whole, as well as remedy any imperfections in the shape of your chin. Benefits of a chin augmentation include:
Your chin augmentation will be performed under general anesthesia. A small incision will be made during the surgery, either in the mouth or hidden under the chin. Then, the implant will be placed in the appropriate position to produce the desired contour and facial profile discussed beforehand. Your surgery will take approximately one hour to perform, depending on the details of your treatment plan and any other procedures you may choose to include, such as rhinoplasty or procedures to sculpt the jawline or neck.
Dr. Richland employs a very thorough consultation process to ensure that your treatment suits every aspect of your needs, ultimately leading to your best possible results. You and he will discuss your treatment preferences and desired outcome. At your consultation, Dr. Richland will take measurements and discuss which size and profile chin implant may be best suited for your goals. Usually, a silicone implant is used, but there are other options as well, including medpor.
You will need to wear a chin wrap dressing for several days after your surgery. During the first few days after your procedure, you may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort, or pain. You will need to adhere to a soft or liquid diet to limit movement in the jaw and mouth. Dr. Richland will provide all Newport Beach chin augmentation patients with detailed instructions regarding their post-procedure care.
The surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure, meaning our Newport Beach chin augmentation patients will be able to go home the day of surgery. You will immediately notice substantial improvement in your facial profile and jawline after surgery. Within several days, you will be able to return to work and usual activities, except for strenuous activity and vigorous exercise. Ultimately, you can look forward to a beautifully balanced appearance and results that will last years to come.
