Am I a good candidate?

Chin augmentation is a great option for people who feel uncomfortable with the way their face looks; full face or profile. The best candidates are patients with microgenia (receding chins), but with normal jaw function.

I will discuss your options after evaluating your general health status and any pre-existing health conditions or risk factors.


How is it done?

Chin augmentation usually takes about 30 to 45 minutes, unless it is combined with another facial surgery such as rhinoplasty or face lifting.  Read More

How long is the recovery?
