Chin augmentation surgery augments the bony structure of the chin, creating a balanced and proportionate chin to enhance your overall facial profile. Dr. Sofonio offers chin augmentation to residents of Palm Springs and Rancho Mirage, CA.

Custom Chin Augmentation Surgery: Dr. Sofonio

In your private consultation with Dr. Sofonio, he will examine your face and review your medical history to ensure you are a good candidate for chin augmentation. This analysis of your facial structure and in-depth discussion with you will guide the type of implant to place and the surgical technique he will take. The incision will be placed within the mouth or in an inconspicuous location beneath your jaw to hide any visible scarring. In most cases, this procedure takes about 45 minutes to an hour to complete.

Creating Facial Balance with Chin Augmentation Surgery

Chin augmentation surgery is always 100 percent customized when under the care of Dr. Sofonio. He has an extraordinary level of dedication to his patients and takes all the time necessary to determine the ideal shape, projection, and size of the implant.

These implants come in a vast range of sizes and shapes, and his artistic eye allows him to choose the implant that will best enhance your profile and balance your features in the most natural-looking way.

A well-balanced facial structure is universally recognized as a factor in facial attraction – and it can be yours with our help.

Recovery After Chin Augmentation Surgery: What to Expect

It is normal to expect some swelling after this custom surgery, which will fade as the days pass. Any discomfort can be controlled with prescription medication during the first phase of healing. The discomfort decreases dramatically within about three days following your chin augmentation procedure. You will need to sleep with your head elevated on extra pillows or a wedge for the first three weeks. Your new chin structure will be protected with tape to ensure it settles into the ideal position. The stitches will be removed (or will dissolve, depending on your procedure) in about one week.

What is the Ideal Chin?

The ideal chin structure will restore a more attractive level of facial harmony.

The procedure can create a more prominent chin, enhance the jawline, and create a far more attractive balance between your features.

Dr. Sofonio will meticulously evaluate your facial structure to select the type of implant that will create the most attractive outcome. He may perform chin augmentation in combination with other procedures, such as lip augmentation, facelift, neck lift, eyelid lift, or other surgical or non-surgical treatment.
