Chin Augmentation in Fredericksburg, VA

What Is a Chin Augmentation?

Mentoplasty (chin augmentation) is a popular cosmetic treatment that improves the look of the jawline and chin for men and women with a recessed chin or one they feel is too prominent. A chin's lack of shape and size can often create an undefined profile. Chin augmentation can be performed to enhance your chin, but one of the most effective procedures is placing a silicone implant to reconstruct a stronger jawline and a more defined profile. In Fredericksburg, VA, plastic surgeons Dr. Howard Heppe, Dr. Harold Bautista, and Dr. Pejman Aflaki offer many options to consider for augmenting your chin. Aside from implants, which come in several sizes and shapes, noninvasive treatments such as injectable fillers or KYBELLA® can be used to add contour. For prominent chins, genioplasty might be an option. This surgery at Plastic Surgery Services of Fredericksburg removes bone to reshape your chin and jaw to a more appealing size.

How Is a Chin Augmentation Performed?

During this procedure, anesthesia will be administered. An incision is made beneath your chin. In this incision, a pocket is formed to secure the implant properly, which involves shaving some of the bone to make grooves to hold your implant in position. The implant is placed through the incision and positioned over the bone, directly below your bottom lip. Sometimes, the incision can also be made inside the lip where it connects to your gumline. Regardless, both help to hide scars. Thin stitches are used to close the incisions safely, and your chin will be wrapped with bandages.

Saw Dr. Bautista for breast augmentation and extremely pleased with my experience. He was patient with my questions and educated me on realistic results. I’m overwhelmingly happy with the outcome and without hesitation recommend him!

I had such a great experience here. Everyone in the office is so helpful and professional. I’ve had 5 large babies and had quite the muffin top situation going on. I can’t believe the difference the tummy tuck made. I’ve heard of other people traveling far away to get procedures done, but I’m super grateful we have such a high caliber plastic surgery office here in Fredericksburg!

I had a breast augmentation done in May and I could not be happier. Dr Heppe and his staff were very professional, helpful and supportive in making sure that what I wanted is what I got. I’ve waited my entire adult life for this surgery and would do it again with this team in a second. A+ all the way around!

The whole staff was amazing. I had a breast lift with augmentation and I love the results. I am no longer embarrassed about my chest. I also had filler under my eyes and everyone at work has commented on how rested I look. My only regret is I wish I would have done this procedure years ago.
