The chin plays a critical role in facial appearance.
Many people may feel that it is their nose that is too large or throwing off the balance for the rest of their face, when in fact a chin augmentation can have significantly marked improvements to one’s image. A chin that is too small can give the face a weak or unrefined appearance, while a well sculpted or chiseled jaw is generally thought to be far more attractive.
Dr. Lee offers chin augmentation to those looking to obtain a beautifully balanced face. Dr. Lee specializes in cosmetic surgery exclusively for the face and neck, which makes her known for performing some of the best chin augmentation Beverly Hills can show for. A chin augmentation can add strength and definition to the jaw line, granting one with a proportioned appearance. One of the great benefits of having a chin augmentation is that you will see the results from your chin augmentation immediately.
Chin augmentation options
There are several options for chin augmentation, which include facial dermal fillers and implants. Implants for chin augmentation are often combined with nasal surgery to obtain optimal results for your profile appearance.
Fillers For chin augmentation
Facial dermal fillers are a great way to achieve chin augmentation through a non-surgical route. Although, due to the fact that fillers are temporary, dermal fillers can be used to improve your profile appearance while you determine whether a chin augmentation with the use of implants is right for you.
Implants for chin augmentation
If you decide to go the route of implants for your chin augmentation, Dr. Lee will make a small incision just under your chin within the natural crease lines, so any scarring will be fairly inconspicuous. The chin implant is then expertly placed through the incision, and sutured to prevent it from being dislodged, before closing up the incision.
Chin augmentation procedures are commonly combined with rhinoplasty or submental liposuction to eliminate the double chin, and enhance your profile. During your consultation with Dr. Lee, you’ll be able to determine the best course of action so that you may reach your personal goals for facial rejuvenation.
I came to Dr. Lee to fix a major chin trauma that had happened over 10 years ago. Before Dr. Lee, I had had numerous consultations with several other facial plastic surgeons but something always felt off. Minutes after meeting Dr. Lee for our first consultation, I felt safe, listened to, and cared for. I felt an immediate trust that I didn’t feel with my previous consultations and a gut instinct that I was in the right, capable hands. Surgery went well, and Dr. Lee even called me personally to check up on me during healing. I’m now one week post-op and still a little swollen, but the symmetry, shape, and overall result is better than what I could have ever expected for my chin. I feel a huge relief and emotional weight off my shoulders that I trusted Dr. Lee with my face. I highly, highly recommend her.

Once you are out of surgery, you will be allowed to return home. The treated areas will be bandaged carefully to facilitate in the healing process. It is important that you keep your head properly elevated for the first 24 hours to help minimize bruising and swelling. You may experience some bruising and swelling for the first several weeks. Once the swelling has diminished, the implants will start to look more natural. Any visible sutures that may have been used will be removed within 5-7 days, following your procedure.
The incision is usually unnoticeable because of its discreet location and will fade with the use of advanced scar reducing treatment. Temporary numbness, or perhaps a sensation of tightness across the chin area can sometimes happen and is normal. This should resolve over time. Typically, you will be asked to return to the office following your surgery, for a follow-up appointment, so that Dr. Lee may be allowed to check in with you, and see how you’re doing.
