What Is Chin Augmentation?
Have you felt like your chin is smaller than you desire or ‘weaker’ in appearance when you compare it to the rest of your facial structures? If so, chin augmentation surgery might be for you. Chin augmentation surgery is one of the fastest areas of growth in cosmetic surgery with statistics released by The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) confirming that in 2011, chin augmentation surgery was the fastest growing procedure in all age demographics. This growing trend is thought to have a direct tie to the modern day usage of video chat. Baby boomers are increasingly viewing themselves using this technology and may notice that their jawline is not as sharp as they would like it to be.
The Benefits of Chin Augmentation
Chin augmentation surgery is a procedure that is performed in order to create a stronger, more defined chin. It can be performed as a solo procedure, at the time of a facelift (rhytidectomy) or necklift, or in conjunction with other procedures, such as a rhinoplasty, in order to help restore balance to the facial structures. Modern surgical methods of chin augmentation utilize a solid silicone implant placed directly on the bone of the chin in order to make the chin appear more prominent. There are numerous shapes and sizes to these implants and Dr. Gayoso will help determine the best shape and size for your facial structure.
Non-Surgical Options for Chin Augmentation
There are also non-surgical options to enhance your chin. Modern-day fillers can be utilized to both enhance the chin as well as minimize the appearance of jowling along the jawline. Our Physician Assistant, Jessica McCarry, can show you how non-surgical procedures can impact your chin and jawline region.

Chin Augmentation Recovery
The length of the recovery period following your chin augmentation in St. Petersburg will depend on the type of procedure performed. Non-surgical chin augmentation does not require a lengthy recovery period and patients can resume most of their normal activities right away. Surgical chin augmentation may require a week or so of recovery. There may be some swelling and bruising around the area. Pain or discomfort can be managed with medication.
The Cost of Chin Augmentation
The cost of your chin augmentation will vary based on the techniques used and other factors. During your consultation with Dr. Gayoso, he can go over the expected cost of your chin augmentation and let you know about the payment and financing options we offer.
