A chin out of balance with the rest of your face can alter your entire appearance. A chin augmentation brings your facial features into harmony with each other and gives you a more sculpted, sharper, more confident profile.
How Does a Chin Augmentation Work?
A chin augmentation, as performed by Dr. Lanfranchi in Las Vegas, uses silicone implants that contour the chin’s forward projection but also add shape and profile enhancement from the sides. These implants last for decades, and in the hands of an experienced surgeon, give people the results they wanted or even better. Dr. Lanfranchi offers a wide range of implant sizes to match your facial features and make your enhancement look natural and balanced.
Dr. Lanfranchi will place the chin implant through a small incision (less than an inch wide) hidden in the natural creases of the chin. With minimal scarring and impressive results that last much longer than fillers, chin augmentation with an implant often surprises people with a much more contoured and confident facial appearance.
Some patients have issues with loose skin or lines and wrinkles as well as chin projection, so Dr. Lanfranchi will often perform a chin augmentation with other procedures such as neck liposuction, neck lift, or lower facelift. A neck lift and lower facelift combine into the Lanfranchi Center’s TLC Lift™, which combines well with a chin augmentation for total results.
Am I a Candidate for a Chin Augmentation?
Candidates for a chin augmentation have concerns about the size, projection, or contour of the chin. People should be healthy nonsmokers or will need to stop smoking before the procedure. Dr. Lanfranchi will make sure people have reasonable expectations of what results they should expect.
What Results Can I Expect From a Chin Augmentation?
You can expect to see immediate results, with more chin projection and a more balanced facial appearance. Dr. Lanfranchi chooses implants that will provide the best results while harmonizing with your own facial features for a naturally enhanced appearance.
Like most other silicone implants, these have been rigorously tested for safety and can remain in place, in most cases, for a lifetime. Dr. Lanfranchi will discuss with you any signs that your implant may need a replacement or any possible concerns you may have.
What is Recovery Like From a Chin Augmentation?
Complete recovery from a chin augmentation lasts one to three weeks. Most of the swelling resolves within the first week, but you may need to wait up to a month to see your results without any swelling. You can return to your usual activities after a few days, but do not exert yourself or cause any stress to the chin area.
Stellar Service from Start to Finish
Two months ago I had a lower lifestyle facial lift. I was apprehensive, but it was well worth the effort and expense. Dr. Lanfranchi and his entire staff were kind, caring and very professional, from the first meeting to the follow up appointments.
The procedure is done under a local, not general anesthetic, and it was easy. I healed quickly and am very satisfied with the results.
His fee was very reasonable. Any further facial work I want done, I will be sure to come back here.
