Helping You Regain Your Youthful Glow
Chin augmentation is a plastic surgery procedure that improves the appearance of the chin with the use of an implant. When it comes to enhancing the aesthetic appearance of the face, the chin implant can be a very powerful tool. Chin augmentation can positively impact your facial contours, bringing balance to your look by making your chin more proportionate alongside the rest of your facial features and helping to remove the look of excess fullness in the submental area.

Your Chin Augmentation Experience
Dr. Vitenas performs chin augmentation at Houston Surgery Center, an outpatient facility conveniently located in the same building as Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery.

Dr. Vitenas uses pre-formed silicone rubber implants which come in a variety of sizes and shapes depending on the correction required. Your results will be customized according to your personal cosmetic goals.
After Your Chin Augmentation
Patients can expect some swelling and bruising after chin augmentation. Talking, smiling, and other facial movements may be difficult at first, and dietary restrictions may be necessary. Medication can help to manage any discomfort that patients experience. The stitches are removed after five days. Work can usually be resumed within three to five days, though more strenuous activities will need to be postponed for four to six weeks.
