A defined chin is often associated with competence and success, but it’s also one of the most difficult areas to shape naturally. An under-defined chin may play havoc with overall facial balance. The Lanfranchi Center, Las Vegas Valley’s premier facial rejuvenation clinic, has the answer you need with a chin augmentation.
How Is the Chin Augmentation Performed?
Patients with a wide age range may benefit from a chin augmentation, which is often paired with the TLC LiftTM (Lower Facelift and Necklift) for patients fighting the signs of aging, or neck liposuction for total control over the lower face shape.
Dr. Lanfranchi prefers a silicone extended anatomic implant for most patients because it enhances both the sides and front of the chin for maximum symmetry and balance. The array of sizes available ensures the proper fit to maintain your natural facial aesthetic while giving you the support and structure you desire.
Chin augmentation is surprisingly quick, with the procedure being performed in just under an hour in The Lanfranchi Center’s state-of-the-art facilities. Chin augmentation is done under local anesthesia with oral sedation to minimize the risks. Most patients are relaxed and feel nothing. Some even sleep. A tiny incision is made in the horizontal crease under your chin to camouflage scarring, and the silicone implant is positioned. Only a few stitches are necessary.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Are you displeased with the contour and size of your chin? If you’re tired of wishing for a more sculpted jawline, a consultation with Dr. Lanfranchi can determine your candidacy for chin augmentation.
Recovery and Results
Since The Lanfranchi Center uses local anesthesia with oral sedation, your recovery time is drastically reduced in both time and difficulty compared to procedures performed under general anesthesia. Swelling is common but mild, and some bruising is possible. You may be ready to resume your normal routine after just 5-7 days. Some patients return to work in less strenuous fields in only 3 days! Post-treatment care with The Lanfranchi Center comes with a fully customized recovery plan to reduce complications and maximize your comfort.
Results may take time to fully peak, as long as a few months for the implant to “settle” into position and your tissues to heal. The swelling may temporarily disguise your results for the first week, but once it subsides, you’ll begin to see how the implant improves your overall facial aesthetic and jawline contour. As a durable medical device, you’ll enjoy your chin implant for years to come. Chin augmentation has a very high satisfaction rating with patients as one of the smallest procedures with the biggest impact.
How Much Does a Chin Augmentation Cost?
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost in 2018 for a chin augmentation was $2,364. RealSelf.com lists the price range, depending on physician experience and geographical location, between $1,000 and $10,250, with an average of around $4,975.

I’m so happy with the decision I made to trust Dr. Lanfranchi and his team with my surgery. I had liposuction under my chin and a chin augmentation. Liposuction is something I thought about for a long time. I had several other consultations hearing about other options such as Kybella and Coolsculpting as well. From all of the research I did I decided liposuction would produce the best and immediate results. Dr. Lanfranchi and his team specifically AJ, Ryan and Dee Dee were kind, informative, personable, and professional from my first time stepping foot into the office. It was the nicest office I visited while going on consultations but that’s not what stood out. What stood out was the staff and how they treated me. They listened to what I wanted and didn’t try to push other surgeries on me. Dr. Lanfranchi only does face surgeries. His knowledge and explanations made me feel comfortable and I knew I was in good hands. I’m three weeks post surgery and I couldn’t be happier with the results. I can’t stress enough how smoothly everything went and how they made me feel like I was apart of the family.
Thank you to all of the TLC staff for making me feel more confident with my appearance. And for caring about my satisfaction and recovery post op. I can’t thank this team enough.
