Chin Augmentation in Manhattan, NYC
Board-certified Manhattan plastic surgeon and general surgeon Richard W. Swift, Jr. M.D., F.A.C.S., performs chin augmentations for patients who desire facial plastic surgery and treatments. Dr. Swift offers chin augmentation for men and women and helps his patients feel better about their chin, face, and overall appearance.
What is Chin Augmentation?
Chin augmentation is a procedure that helps bring balance to the face. The chin is an important facial feature. It affects the appearance of the face from the front and the side. When a patient feels like his or her facial features are not in balance, or in proportion, rhinoplasty or chin augmentation is an option. Many times, chin augmentation is more appropriate, as it improves the shape and size of the chin to bring this facial feature into balance. Chin augmentation procedures include full-chin-augmentation, chin implants, chin liposuction, and Kybella™.
Benefits of Full-Chin Augmentation
Most people who have undergone full-chin augmentation, which includes a chin implant, are glad they did it. They tell us they benefitted from this plastic surgery procedure because:
- It’s a safe and effective way to enhance the chin.
- It brings the chin into a more attractive balance.
- After full-chin augmentation, they feel happier with their other facial features.
One of the chin augmentation procedures that Dr. Swift offers is a chin implant. A chin implant, normally formed from a hard silicone, changes the size and shape of the chin. There are many different shapes and sizes are available for every facial structure. The implant is placed using a very fine incision under your chin. It fits naturally over your jawbone to enhance the appearance of the jawline. Chin implant surgery typically takes anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. Chin implants are common chin augmentation options. They can be removed, therefore, the procedure is reversible.
Opting for chin liposuction can bring a dramatic new and improved look to your chin and face. Removing even a small amount of fat can make you look completely different and leave you loving your appearance. Chin liposuction often makes patients look younger and have better facial proportions. It also can remove jowls and tighten saggy skin.
Chin Liposuction Before and After
Chin liposuction enhances the chin by giving you a sharper jawline and better facial proportions, which make you look younger and more attractive. Dr. Swift also removes the jowls, and the laser tightens the skin. Please remove the previous highlighted sentence. After chin liposuction, patients typically look and feel more confident.
Kybella ™ is a non-surgical chin augmentation option that Dr. Swift can perform for you. This procedure reduces moderate to severe fat on the upper neck, commonly called a “double chin”. During a Kybella™ treatment (typically you will need 4 to 6 treatments), a naturally-occurring molecule that eats away fat is injected into the skin under your chin. Kybella™ only targets fat in the neck. It makes cells in this area unable to store fat any longer, which gives you improved neck appearance now and in the future.
Is Chin Augmentation Right for Me?
Chin augmentation could be right for you if you feel your facial features are unattractive or are not in proportion. If you have a weak chin, chin augmentation surgery could be good for you. After your initial consultation with Dr. Swift, he may suggest chin augmentation in conjunction with, or in lieu of, rhinoplasty.
