Chin augmentation creates a well-proportioned and balanced look for the face. There are many procedures for chin augmentation, but the two most popular ones are:

1. Augmentation with chin implant
2. Augmentation by chin forward sliding

1. Augmentation with chin implant:

          This is a popular procedure for patients who require little to medium degree of augmentation, with height not exceeding 0.5 millimeters (5 mm). This is considered a simple surgery. The procedure takes about 45 minutes with a local anesthesia. The patient may leave immediately after the surgery.


2. Augmentation by chin forward sliding:

          This procedure is used for patients with extremely short chin. The surgery extends the chin forward, under general anesthesia. This procedure takes about 2 hours. The patient is required to stay one night in the hospital with a recovery period of 2 to 3 weeks.


Incision of chin Augmentation:

- Inside the mouth – a very popular procedure as the scar is hidden
- Underneath the chin – less popular because as the scar is clearly visible
