    View Our Chin Augmentation Before and After Pictures

    The Plastic Surgery Center Internationale, which provides state-of-the-art innovations in the field of cosmetic plastic surgery & age management, offers chin augmentations to patients who desire a fresh look.

    Whether you were born with a chin that seems out of proportion with the rest of your face or your jawbone was broken in an accident, Dr. Giampapa offers chin augmentation as a way to bring your chin and jaw line back into proportion with the rest of your facial features. The doctors also recommend this chin implant procedure to certain patients having nose surgery to achieve a balanced facial proportion, as the size of the chin may magnify or minimize the perceived size of the nose. Chin augmentation can provide a harmonious balance to facial features, improving the appearance of the face and increasing self-esteem.

    Who Is a Suitable Candidate for Chin Augmentation in New York City and New Jersey?

    While it is impossible to tell you definitively whether chin augmentation is the right solution for your concerns, here are some general questions that suggest you may be a suitable candidate for chin augmentation:

    • Are you concerned about the structure, symmetry, or definition of your chin in relation to the rest of your facial features?
    • Is your facial skin and tissue healthy?
    • Are you realistic about your expectations for the outcome of the chin augmentation procedure?
    • Are you in reasonably good physical and psychological health?

    If you honestly answered “yes” to these questions, then the next step is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Giampapa. During this appointment, you and the doctor will review your medical history, address any current medical concerns, and explore different options you have to achieve your goals for aesthetic surgery. If both you and the physician decide that chin augmentation is the best choice for you, expect to receive instructions about how to prepare for surgery, as well as information about local anesthesia, sedation, pain control options, and post-surgical care.

    If you are ready to find out if chin augmentation is the best solution for you, call the Plastic Surgery Center Internationale at 973-746-3535 today to schedule your consultation.

    What to Expect Before, During, and After Chin Augmentation Surgery in New York City and New Jersey

    Before Your Chin Augmentation

    Some of the ways you’ll be asked to prepare for your chin augmentation include the following:

    • If you are a smoker, you’ll need to refrain from tobacco use several weeks prior to the procedure.
    • Stop taking aspirin, NSAIDS, and other medications or supplements that have the potential to increase your risk of heavy bleeding.

    The Day of Your Surgery

    On the day of your chin augmentation, the following will occur:

    • The surgical team will prep you for surgery and answer any of your last-minute questions.
    • You’ll receive anesthesia for your comfort during the procedure.
    • Surgery is performed through a small incision just below the chin where the doctor places the implants, which are usually made of silicone or porous polyethylene (Medpor®), a biocompatible material that integrates with the underlying bone.
    • The final step of the procedure is to close the wound, suture it, and apply dressings. At this point, the team will transfer you to the recovery area.

    Your Recovery

    • After you have recovered from the procedure, and the doctor approves your departure, you’ll be able to go home. As part of your aftercare plan, you may be prescribed antibiotics to prevent infection and pain control medicine. Most people find they need the pain medicine for only about 48 hours and then they can manage any minor discomfort with over-the-counter treatments. Most people report they return to work and their usual activities within a week after the procedure.
