Chin augmentation procedure steps
Chin aesthetics usually require general anesthesia for the patient.
Making the surgical incision
The patient agrees with his doctor on the place where the surgical incision is made for chin surgery. This incision is usually simple and discreet, and recovers quickly and well when the doctor’s instructions are adhered to. Sometimes the surgical incision is made from inside the mouth.
The operation is carried out according to the patient’s condition, so some implants are implanted or fat is injected in the case of attempts to enlarge the chin, and some of the fat is removed or the bones of the lower jaw are reshaped to obtain the ideal shape of the chin as desired by the patient.
Then it is done:
- Surgical incision closure
- Putting on dressings and recovering the patient
- Remove bandages to see results
Possible risks and complications
Chin augmentation is a major surgical procedure, and the expected risks include bleeding at the time of the operation or infection afterwards. The expected risks in the process of chin augmentation and beautification also include the body rejecting the implant used to enlarge and beautify the chin, and the body attacking the chin with inflammatory substances in an attempt to get rid of the implant (which requires surgery to remove it).
The expected risks also include clots, or scars, and chin surgery may experience swelling and blueness for a period after the operation, but these symptoms quickly disappear. There is also a risk of being cut in some small and large nerves.
These risks are all limited and relative and can be reduced to a minimum by a good selection of a qualified doctor that you trust in his ability to perform the operation without errors. It is also important to adhere to the doctor’s instructions completely in the period preceding the operation as well as in the recovery period, as this reduces the risks and contributes to maximizing the success rate of the operation.

Chin plastic surgery advice
The patient begins to discuss his condition with his doctor, and explains to him his desire for the plastic surgery that he wants to perform on his chin, whether it is chin augmentation, chin reduction, or anything else. The doctor directs his patient to help him anticipate the results of the operation and their suitability to his expectations about his appearance afterwards.
Some clinics have computer programs that allow your doctor to prepare an approximate image of your face shape after the surgery. If this technique is available, do not hesitate to use it because it will show you the extent of your real need for the operation or not, and will help you accept your appearance after the completion of the operation and be satisfied with its results.
In the consultation session, you should explain your health condition to your doctor fully, explain to him all the chronic diseases that you suffer from, and explain to him the surgeries that you have previously performed. You should also tell your doctor about all the medicines you take, both prescription and over-the-counter.
Your doctor may need to physically examine you before the surgery, and you may also undergo some medical tests. You will receive from your doctor some instructions to refrain from taking certain medications long enough before the operation (including aspirin, and some anticoagulants). These instructions are very important because some of these medications and drugs may contribute to increasing the chances of bleeding during and after the operation.
