Chin augmentation is a cosmetic surgical procedure that improves the appearance of your face by restoring symmetry and definition to the jawline. Dr. David Mashhadian has helped countless patients enhance not just their appearance, but their self-image as well and is always happy to answer any questions you may have.
The chin provides a focus for the face as a whole. A well-defined chin is an important component of what many consider to be a beautiful face, but if your chin lacks definition, is irregularly shaped, or otherwise causes you self-consciousness, you may look and feel heavier or older than you really are. Patients who wish to better define their feminine features through facial feminization also often discover that chin implants dramatically improve others’ recognition of their gender.
Chin augmentation involves placing a medical-grade implant into the tissue of the chin. Such implants are usually made from silicone, Gore-Tex, Medpor, or similar materials, and many different sizes and shapes are available. Dr. Mashhadian places implants with skill and precision, and he takes care to minimize the potential for scarring.
Chin implant surgery takes just a couple of hours at most, and recovery is fast, usually about a week. Your natural-looking results, however, will last a lifetime.
