Do I Need a Chin Augmentation With My Facelift?

Are you thinking about having a facelift to rejuvenate your appearance, but you’re also unhappy with the look of your chin.  If yes, you may want to consider having a chin augmentation as well.

Do I need a chin augmentation with my facelift?

Facelift surgery gets rid of excess skin and tightens the underlying muscle layer; it does not affect the appearance of the chin.  In contrast, chin augmentation contours the chin, giving added tone and definition to the face.  Chin augmentation is typically done with a silicone implant, which is placed above the chin bone.

If your chin is deficient in any way, and makes your facial features look out of proportion, you can certainly benefit from having chin augmentation with your face lift.    Combining chin augmentation and a facelift procedure often gives the best final facial rejuvenation result.

Benefits of a chin augmentation

Chin augmentation improves the structure and balance of the face, by adding definition to the chin and jawline.  It also improves the overall balance of the facial features.  Augmenting the chin is often just what’s needed to achieve facial harmony.

If you are considering a facelift, and think you may also need a chin augmentation, it is best to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon for an evaluation.  The plastic surgeon will be able to assess your needs, to determine the most appropriate option for you.
