Male Chin Augmentation with Implants in Washington, D.C.
A small or weak chin can dramatically affect your facial harmony and draw attention away from other strong features. If you are unhappy with your jawline or find yourself wishing your chin was stronger or more chiseled, it may be time to consider chin augmentation surgery. Male chin augmentation is a straightforward procedure that can balance your features and strengthen your jawline through the placement of a chin implant.

What to Expect from Male Chin Augmentation Implants
Chin augmentation surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia administered by one of our board certified anesthesiologists. This is an outpatient procedure and, depending on your individual needs, can take anywhere from one to three hours. Your surgeon will begin by placing a small, inconspicuous incision either underneath your chin or inside of your mouth.
Through this incision, your surgeon will place a plastic or synthetic implant on the front surface of the lower jaw to provide definition. This implant will be customized to your existing facial structure and pre-selected before your procedure to provide the most natural and masculine results. Once the implant has been placed satisfactorily, your incisions will be sutured and dressed.
After your surgery, you will experience swelling and slight bruising on your lower jaw. For the first few days, you will need to restrict your diet to liquids or soft foods as your body begins healing and acclimating to the chin implant. Within 10 – 14 days, most of your swelling should be gone and you can resume normal activity and exercise. It may take four to six weeks for your chin to feel completely normal.
