Will Augmentation Fix my Double Chin?
Surgical chin augmentation is meant to give you a stronger, sharper chin. To correct a double chin, it’s recommended that patients look into neck liposuction, which removes excess fat from the submental area (the upper neck below the jawline). Occasionally, neck liposuction can wind up improving the jawline and appearance without chin augmentation surgery. Dr. Anthony will go over your choices and his suggestions during your consultation.
Can I Combine Other Facial Surgeries with Chin Augmentation?
Chin implants are often paired with other facial procedures such as cheek implants or nose re-shaping. Dr. Anthony can work with you to help you choose the procedures that will best create a sense of symmetry and balance within your facial features. During your consultation, Dr. Anthony will utilize his years of experience with facial cosmetic surgery to work with you and develop a personalized treatment plan designed to bring you the results you want.
Are There Non-Surgical Procedures to Improve My Chin?
Kybella is a minimally invasive treatment that improves one’s appearance by correcting stubborn fat that can cause a double chin. It’s FDA-approved to eliminate fat in your upper neck (the submental area) through simple, in-office injections. Kybella can also be performed alongside chin surgery to deliver optimal results. Dr. Anthony will talk about all of your non-surgical options during your initial consultation.
What's the Difference Between Mentoplasty and Genioplasty?
Chin augmentation surgery (mentoplasty) is a procedure designed to build fullness in the chin. On the other hand, genioplasty is intended to rebuild the chin bone and, in most cases, decrease the overall size of the jawline. Based on the state of your chin and with consideration of your personal goals, you might be suited to both surgeries, or just one. Genioplasty, in addition to being a cosmetic procedure, can also be performed to improve medical concerns, like your dental bite. Dr. Anthony can help you choose whether to get a genioplasty, mentoplasty, or both.
