The size and shape of your chin affect the look of your jawline and profile. A weak or double chin can severely harm your confidence and self-esteem. When you are looking to sharpen and define your jawline, a surgical chin augmentation in Troy may be an ideal procedure.
Many male patients desire a sharper, more angular chin to achieve a more masculine and traditionally handsome appearance. Female clients may also want to reduce a baby-faced appearance by creating a stronger jawline. Regardless of your reason for considering a surgical chin augmentation in Troy, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Danielle DeLuca-Pytell can help you achieve your goals.
Chin augmentation is a targeted surgical procedure designed to reshape the chin. Your surgical strategy for your chin augmentation will depend on your specific needs. Some instances of reshaping the chin involve surgical techniques such as liposuction to remove excess skin and fat. More commonly, Dr. DeLuca-Pytell uses implants to add volume to the chin area. She works with you to select implants based on your aesthetic preferences.
This procedure is ideal for patients with a weak chin, soft chin, or undefined chin. In almost all cases, a chin augmentation at our Troy office results in a more chiseled face and a more angular jawline. During your initial consultation, we listen to your goals to determine the ideal surgical strategy to achieve your ideal results.
A surgical chin augmentation procedure typically takes a few hours. We provide general anesthesia for your comfort. You must have a trusted friend or family member drive you home from surgery.
Before your procedure, we provide a list of personalized pre and post-operative guidelines to follow. You may return to your normal daily activities once our team clears you, typically a few days after your procedure. In general, we recommend abstaining from exercise or vigorous activity for at least two weeks, though your recovery conditions may vary. For most of our patients from Troy and beyond, results from a chin augmentation procedure will be fully apparent after a few weeks.
Yes, you can expect that your chin augmentation in Troy results will be permanent. Chin augmentations with implants involve placing the implant so it will not move or deteriorate. Any use of liposuction also involves permanent fat removal. If you decide you want to reverse or further enhance your results, we can help. We can remove your implant or use dermal fillers to add more volume.
A chiseled, angular jawline is a sign of attractiveness for both men and women. A chin augmentation is ideal for male and female patients who wish to reshape their face, chisel their jawline, and achieve a beautiful profile.
