Chin Augmentation is designed to alter or improve your chin’s appearance. While there are several different ways to change the look and shape of your chin, the 2 most common ways are through Chin Augmentation and Chin Reduction. When a Reduction is performed, also called chin shaving surgery, an over projected or prominent chin is quite literally shaved down to a more aesthetically pleasing appearance. With an Augmentation, a silicone implant is customized to match your natural features and will be inserted within your skin to provide a more pronounced appearance.



At Personique, we often encourage our patients to consider chin augmentation surgeries for a combination of reasons, and the result comes with an array of benefits. Improving the balance of the facial elements with chin augmentation is just one of many ways to enhance appearance in a surgical or non-surgical way. Some of the benefits of this procedure include:

  • Strengthened chin appearance
  • More attractive, triangular jaw shape
  • Increased width or height of the chin
  • Improved profile appearance
  • Minimizing the appearance of a double chin
  • Balance the nose and chin for better harmony across the face
  • Reduce or eliminate chin dimpling

Who are the Best Candidates for a CHIN AUGMENTATION?

We believe Chin Augmentation, like many of our procedures at Personique, can be life-changing for patients who are self-conscious or struggle with the appearance of their chin. We all deserve to look and feel our best, and it’s our job to help you achieve this feeling. In general, you may be a good Chin Augmentation candidate if:

  • You are physically healthy and at a stable weight
  • You have realistic expectations of the procedure
  • You are a nonsmoker
  • You are upset by the appearance of your chin
  • You have a chin that is too short or lacks projection from the face


Much like many of our procedures, the first step to getting Chin Augmentation in Austin, TX is realistic expectations about what the procedure can and can’t do for your appearance. Upon consultation, we follow a customized chin augmentation cosmetic surgery process that is pre-determined based on the needs of the patient. Although the procedure for chin implants follows a similar pattern in all cases, minor changes in technique can be implemented in specific situations. During your appointment, we’ll be able to answer questions and provide you with our expert recommendations.



What to expect on the day of your Chin Augmentation will vary depending on what you’re having done. Regardless if you’re having a Reduction or Augmentation, you will begin your surgery by receiving anesthesia. Once under the anesthesia, your surgeon will begin by making a thin, small incision either inside the lower lip or below the chin.

When getting an augmentation, an insert will be placed in this newly formed pocket, with the size and type of insert being predetermined during your consultations.

If you are getting a Chin Reduction, any excess bone is removed and your chin will be contoured to the desired shape.

Once your surgeon is finished, sutures, adhesives, or tapes are used to close the incision.


As with most surgical procedures, swelling and discomfort, along with some discoloration, is normal. A few weeks after your Austin chin augmentation procedure, all of these will subside and you may begin resuming your daily routine unless additional procedures have been done. Our surgeons and staff will guide you through the recovery process, instructing you on how to care for yourself, what to avoid, and any other important details about post-surgical care. Additionally, our physicians will provide you with pain medication if necessary.

Is Chin Augmentation painful?

Since you will be under anesthesia, the surgery itself will not hurt, however, you should expect some discomfort and soreness during the initial stages of recovery. Any pain should be minimal and can be alleviated with pain medication and ice packs.

How many appointments will I need?

You should expect to return to your surgeon about a week after your surgery so they can monitor your healing process and remove any sutures if need be. After your initial check-up appointment, you will be asked to return around 2 to 3 months later. After this appointment, it will be up to your doctor if you’ll need to return based on how you are recovering.

How long until I see results?

Your skin will require some time to adjust to the new contours of your chin, but you can expect to see some changes immediately following your procedure. Most patients will see their final results between 1 and 3 months depending on how their body heals and recovers from the procedure.

Can I combine Chin Augmentation with other procedures?

Chin Augmentation is also often performed along with other plastic surgery procedures that complement the facial structure, such as a Facelift, rhinoplasty, Brow Lift, and Cheek Augmentation. If there are any other areas on your face or anywhere else on your body that you would like to improve, please bring this up during your consultation so your plastic surgeon can listen to your aesthetic goals and make the best recommendations for you!
