What is Chin Augmentation?

Chin enhancement surgery (or chin augmentation) is a popular aesthetic treatment that recontours the chin and lower face for patients with a recessed chin or one they feel is overbearing. Often when a chin lacks shape and size, it can create a lack of profile definition. Chin augmentation can be performed to highlight your chin, but one of the most popular procedures is inserting an implant to build a stronger jawline and a more defined profile. In New Orleans, LA, plastic surgeon Dr. Mark W. Stalder performs several options to consider for your chin augmentation. Aside from implants, which are produced in a number of sizes and shapes, noninvasive augmentations, such as injectable fillers or KYBELLA®, can be used to add contour. For chins that are very large, genioplasty might be an option. This treatment at Stalder Plastic Surgery removes bone to reduce your chin and jaw to a more appealing size.

How Does Chin Augmentation Work?

During this procedure, general anesthesia will be administered or sedation by IV in some cases. The incision is made just under your chin. Through this incision, a surgical pocket is created to keep the implant device in place, which involves reducing some of the tissue, cartilage, and bone to create grooves to hold your implant in position. The implant is inserted through the incision and positioned over the bone, directly below your lower lip. In some cases, the incision can be created inside the lower lip where it meets your gumline. Both incision points help to conceal scars. Tiny stitches are used to connect and close the incisions, and your chin will be wrapped with bandages.

Chin augmentation surgery creates immediate attractive results. Even though swelling and bruising will be present following your surgery, this only lasts a short while. For the majority of patients, chin augmentation takes a couple of weeks of healing. Heavy exercise should not be performed within this recovery window. Chin augmentation surgery has historically high success rates, and by having it under the hands of a skilled surgeon, like Dr. Stalder, your outcome will be natural and proportionate.

We welcome you to call Stalder Plastic Surgery and schedule your consultation with Dr. Mark W. Stalder to learn more about your options.

From the day I met Dr Stalder he always asked me what I wanted rather than force anything on me. I trusted the process from the start and in the course of a year, the work done to my body is unbelievable. The more I heal the more beautiful everything is. From him to his 5 star staff, they are truly some wonderful people. My breasts look amazing!!! I still can’t believe how it all came together! Anytime I had a question him and his team were there to provide the answers almost in the blink of an eye! I am so honored to have worked with Dr Stalder and his team. I will never forget you all as I continue on with my life. You all were a special part of my breast cancer journey. Waking up to Abby checking on me also warmed my heart. She’s such a sweetheart ! I love you all and pray you continue to do an amazing job with individuals dealing with cancer. You have restored my dignity and helped me to love myself again.

I have fully recovered from my Diep flap procedure and reconstructive surgery from Dr. Stalder. I could not be happier with the outcome! Initially I was nervous to go thru the surgery because my situation was a little different. I had a prophylactic mastectomy with implants about 10 years ago and after multiple implant replacement surgeries due to issues, I also had a breast implant associated lymphoma scare. I was recommended to and sought consult with Dr. Mark Stalder. Dr. Stalder was able to resolve ALL of my issues! I couldn't be happier and really have appreciated Dr. Stalder and his amazing Team, Jess and Abby! Not only do my breasts look and feel amazing, the areas where tissues was harvested also look amazing, a nice little perk :) Thank you Dr. Stalder, Abby and Jess for everything you have done for me!

I had considered having a rhinoplasty for several years but was nervous that I would come out looking like a completely different person. Additionally, I had a severely damaged septum making it difficult to breathe through one side of my nose. After meeting with Dr. Stalder and the exceptional team at Stalder Plastic Surgery I was convinced that I would be in capable hands. Dr. Stalder took the time to listen to my concerns and answered all of my questions. I am currently 6 weeks post op and I could not be happier! Dr. Stalder made the changes that I had wanted for so long while maintaining the integrity of my nose. The subtle changes didn't make me look like a different person but rather a better version of myself! I am thrilled with the results and would absolutely recommend Dr. Stalder and Stalder Plastic Surgery for all of your needs and especially if you are considering surgery. If you are looking for a plastic surgeon, you should absolutely meet with Dr. Stalder. Currently I receive Botox at Stalder Plastic Surgery and I am always pleased with the very natural looking results. The office is stunning and the staff are kind and helpful. While I am not ready for anything else right now, I know that I will not trust anyone else but Dr. Stalder for my future aesthetic needs.

I had Botox done by Dr Stalder and it has been the best Botox I’ve ever received. I’ve been to plenty of different kind of providers for Botox but Dr Stalder did the best I’ve ever had. He’s professional but also easy going and easy to talk to about what you’re looking for. Jess and the rest of the staff are great at taking care of you to help you get the appointment that works best for you and making sure you are happy with your results. I’m looking forward to more treatments here at Stalder Plastic Surgery!
