Asian Chin Augmentation in Beverly Hills


A defined, well-projected chin is essential for balanced facial proportions in Asian patients. Unfortunately, some individuals are born with under-developed chins that lack projection and shape.

Chin augmentation surgery (also known as genioplasty) increases the size, shape, and projection of the chin through the use of a silicone implant or moving the chin bone. This procedure creates balanced harmony between facial features and allows Asian men and women to feel more confident in their facial appearance.

What Can Chin Augmentation Do for Asian Patients?

Provide Facial Balance and Proportion

Patients who desire chin augmentation surgery often feel that their chin is crooked or misshapen. Dr. Lee offers chin implants and sliding genioplasty to provide Asian patients with pleasing facial balance and proportion.

Create a Defined Jawline

Many people wonder if chin augmentation improves the jawline. Asian chin augmentation surgery can help define the lower face to create a chiseled neck and jawline, providing patients with a symmetrical and strong appearance.

Eliminate a Double Chin

Many patients seeking Asian chin augmentation are unhappy with the appearance of their double chin. Chin augmentation surgery helps define and tighten the skin around the chin, eliminating the appearance of a double chin.

What Are My Surgical Options for Chin Augmentation?

Chin Implant Surgery

There are not multiple types of chin implants, as most are made from biocompatible silicone, but your chin implant size and shape will be customized based on your specific needs.

Where Are the Incisions Made for Chin Implant Surgery?
Chin implant incisions are made on the inside of the lip. This eliminates any visible scarring.

The implant is inserted through the incision and positioned between the chin bone and the natural tissue. The incision is then closed using removable sutures.

Sliding Genioplasty

Sliding genioplasty involves an incision inside the lower lip along the gum line. Dr. Lee then cuts the chin bone from the jaw and moves it forward to meticulously reposition the chin and make it more prominent. A plate and screws secure the bones in place.

Have Concerns About Your Chin Augmentation Surgery?

How Much Does Chin Augmentation Cost?

Your chin augmentation cost may vary depending on the type of surgery, implant selection, facility fees, anesthesia fees, pre-surgical tests, and post-surgical dressings. Dr. Lee will provide you with an accurate chin augmentation cost estimate during your consultation.

What Is Chin Augmentation Recovery Like?

Your chin may be wrapped with dressings that will protect the treatment area and ensure that the implant or chin and jaw bones settle into the correct position. We suggest that you rest and sleep with your head in an upright position to reduce swelling by promoting blood circulation.

How Long Is Recovery After Chin Augmentation Surgery?
Most patients feel comfortable returning to work within one to two weeks, but they should avoid any strenuous exercise or activity for four to six weeks.

Is Chin Augmentation Painful?

Since chin augmentation is performed using anesthesia, you will not feel any pain throughout the procedure. You can expect bruising, swelling, and soreness following your chin augmentation. Any discomfort can be alleviated with prescribed or over-the-counter pain medication and cold compresses.
