If you are looking for a permanent solution to achieving a well-defined or proportionate jawline and facial profile, chin augmentation with implants may be the procedure of choice for you. If you’re uncertain of whether or not a chin implant may be right for you, Dr. Few can simulate a surgical result using temporary soft tissue fillers to achieve a stronger chin.
If you suffer from a small chin with limited overbite, or alternatively, suffer from a large nose with a weakened chin, the chin augmentation procedure may help to greatly improve these aesthetic issues. Additionally, a chin augmentation can help to combat a double chin with a short neck that lacks definition.
As with any surgery, ideal candidates should be in good health, physically and psychologically, with no major medical conditions. Expectations should be for improvement rather than perfection, based on your confidential consultation with Dr. Few in Chicago.

After making a small incision under the chin, the implant is placed into the pocket created over the bone along the lower jaw. It is then affixed to either soft tissue or bone.
Incisions are closed with sutures, skin adhesives or surgical clips. The entire surgery takes less than an hour to complete.
Expect to be mildly sore and swollen for the first couple of days after surgery. Sutures are usually removed within a week’s time. Permanent results are visible as soon as the swelling subsides.
