Chin augmentation is a popular surgery elected by men. Since 2000, chin augmentation (mentoplasty) procedures in the United States has increased 71 percent to 20,680 surgeries. Chin augmentation is not only utilized to make the chin bigger, but change the appearance of the chin. A person can have a chin augmentation for a bigger or longer appearance, usually relative to his or her nose.
As for many plastic surgeries, chin augmentation restores balance to the face. People who have a weak or receding chin, for instance, can choose to have their nose smaller for a more balanced looking face. This procedure is often none with a nose job (rhinoplasty) or facial liposuction to ensure that facial symmetry is achieved.
After a chin augmentation procedure, your face and chin will feel numb for up to 3 months. Swelling should subside after 6 weeks. Depending on the procedure (ie if it is coupled with rhinoplasty), you may be restricted to a soft diet for a couple days following. Light activity can be resumed the following day, and patients can return to work with 7 to 10 days.
