Male Chin Augmentation at Hessler Plastic Surgery

If you’re a male who is bothered by the appearance of your chin, Dr. Jill Hessler performs chin augmentation surgery to define the area and provide a more sculpted, masculine look. This procedure uses implants to enhance the chin, resulting in facial proportions that are more harmonious and attractive. 

What is chin augmentation?

Chin augmentation is a surgical procedure designed to improve contours of a weak or recessed chin. The outcome is a stronger, more masculine appearance, and an overall improvement of the chin, neck, jawline. Chin augmentation can:

  • Contour a chin that is in better balance with other features
  • Build up a weak or recessed chin
  • Improve definition of the neck and jawline
  • Improve overall facial harmony 

What do the chin implants look like?

Once the chin implant procedure is complete, the implants feel just like natural bone. No one will be able to tell you’ve had an augmentation.

The implants are small and made of a flexible, biocompatible material that is able to be shaped around the actual bone of your chin. You will be able to decide on your specific implant’s size and shape during your consultation with Dr. Hessler. She will help you understand which one will be ideal for your personal aesthetic goals and desired level of chin enhancement.

Chin augmentation surgical details 

In chin augmentation surgery, the implant will be placed on top of your natural chin bone to build up and enhance the area. the procedure is performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation and takes about one hour. (Unless other procedures are being done in combination.)

Dr. Hessler will carefully make an incision either inside your mouth or under your chin so that the chin implant can be inserted. She will then insert the implant and gently fit it around your natural chin bone. The incisions will then be closed. 


Most patients are able to return to work or school within a week after their chin augmentation surgery. Any discomfort can be managed with recommended or prescribed medication from Dr. Hessler. During recovery, you will need to sleep face up with your head elevated for at least one week. This will help with swelling, and will also protect your incision. You will be able to lift heavy objects and exercise again within 4 to 6 weeks after surgery.

Chin augmentation results look very good about three months after surgery, and will be final after six months.

Can chin augmentation be combined with other procedures?

While chin augmentation is a highly effective surgery on its own, many patients choose to combine chin augmentation with another procedure for optimal results. The most common procedures performed alongside a chin augmentation include neck liposuction and rhinoplasty.
