Chin and Jaw Augmentation for Men in NYC

Chin Augmentation for men in NYC

What is Chin and Jaw Augmentation?

Chin and jaw augmentation, also known as Mentoplasty or Genioplasty, are often performed on the bone itself, reshaping the chin and jaw with a silicone implant or reduction surgery. Due to the chin and jaw region’s great impact on a man’s overall facial harmony, this treatment is often prescribed by board-certified surgeons like Dr. Steinbrech. When other facial features like the nose are prominent or large, they will appear even more so when combined with a weak chin or unpronounced jawline. Chin and jaw augmentation work to counteract those elements. It is not uncommon for your surgeon to pair chin and jaw augmentation with Rhinoplasty to achieve more desirable facial proportions, optimizing the results of surgery. 

How is Jaw Augmentation Performed?

Chin and jaw augmentation typically only takes around 30 minutes to an hour to complete using a local anesthetic. The surgery is performed via a small incision inside the mouth or one’s natural crease line below the chin. Overlying tissue is lifted from the bone, allowing for space so that an implant can be placed over any deficiency on the chin or jaw bone. Conversely, excess bone or tissue can also be removed, contouring the face to a more desirable shape. Once the surgery is complete, sutures are placed on the incision. Scars are typically not visible.

*Implants are made from a specific medical-grade material that looks and feels like natural bone. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes so that they can be tailored to the individual patient’s needs.

Who is a Good Candidate for Chin and Jaw Augmentation?

Chin and jaw augmentation are best for those seeking a more youthful, masculine appearance. Patients also may consider this treatment as the recovery time is comparatively low to other plastic surgeries, with patients returning to work in less than a week’s time. All NYC patients are advised to be in good health before considering chin and jaw augmentation. Mentoplasty or Genioplasty are ideal surgeries for men looking to improve:

  • Fleshy neck
  • Pointed chin
  • Prominent nose
  • Weak jawline
  • Recessed or double chin

While swelling typical after chin and jaw augmentation, heightened swelling typically subsides after 48 hours. Although immediate strenuous exercises should be avoided for 10 days, it’s not uncommon for male patients to return to work the same week after surgery. Minor changes to oral hygiene and diet are modified post-surgery with the assistance of Dr. Steinbrech.
