How Long is Recovery from a Chin Augmentation?

When a person is interested in any sort of facial procedure, it is important to find out about the recovery process. What can you expect? How long will it take for you to return to your daily routine?

Well, with chin augmentation, the recovery process is not as long as extensive as a lot of people envision. So, if you want a natural-appearing chin augmentation to improve the symmetry and shape of your face, the Lanfranchi Center can help. Read on to learn more about this procedure and the recovery process.

Chin Augmentation Purpose

If you have a weak jawline and chin, it can make you look older and heavier than you really are, as it causes your face to become less defined.

Once you start to get older, you can have a tired and droopy look because your jowls start to sag. 

A lot of people notice that this results in a detrimental impact on other areas of life, from their social to professional life. 

You can achieve a more refined appearance with a simple chin augmentation, which will make you look more youthful with a leaner and more sleek appearance.

Chin Augmentation Procedure

Chin augmentation is a simple procedure that can alter how you look and feel, helping you to regain your confidence and feel amazing. This involves creating a more synergized and contoured appearance.

It involves reshaping the chin by reduction surgery on the bone or enhancement using an implant.

Shaped silicone implants will give the chin more projection. On the other hand, the bone from the jaw can sometimes be moved forward, which is known as a genioplasty.  Genioplasty tends to have a longer recovery period and higher complication rate.

Chin Augmentation Recovery

In most cases, you will make a full recovery from chin augmentation within a matter of three weeks, so the recovery phase is not long at all. Most experts recommend a one to a three-week allowance for a complete recovery to be made.

You need to ensure that you take proper care of your skin during this period, though. This means adhering to the correct medical-grade skincare regimen that Dr. Lanfranchi has provided you with.

You are also advised to refrain from drinking and smoking, as well as avoiding non-steroidal anti-inflammatories such as ibuprofen. 

After you have had chin augmentation, it is natural to encounter a bit of swelling. However, this will only be a small amount, and you should be able to hide it with ease behind a facial covering until it fades away.

Am I a Candidate for Chin Augmentation?

Finally, you are probably wondering whether or not you are a good candidate for a chin augmentation. If you have an under-defined or weak chin, this could be the perfect solution for you.

Dr. Lanfranchi always starts every potential patient with a thorough consultation to discuss your suitability.

There are not many situations that will rule you out of having chin augmentation treatment. However, this is something you can discuss with Dr. Lanfranchi should you have any worries or concerns.

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.
