About Chin Augmentation
Chin enhancement surgery (or chin augmentation) is a highly sought after aesthetic treatment that improves the look of the chin for men and women with a recessive chin, or one they feel is overbearing. Often when a chin is recessed and sunken in, it can create an unpleasant and weak jawline. Chin augmentation can be performed to highlight your chin, and one of the most popular procedures is using an implant to build a more prominent jawline and a more appealing profile. In Beverly Hills, CA, double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Suzanne Trott offers various cosmetic improvements to consider for your chin enhancement. This surgery at Suzanne A. Trott, MD, FACS shaves and removes bone to recontour your chin and jaw to a more appealing size.
"Dr. Trott has changed my life! I found her by getting recommendations from about 4 girlfriends who had the same procedure I was going in for. All were happy with their results, so I knew she was definitely someone I wanted to meet with. As soon as I met her for my initial consultation, I knew she was the surgeon for me. She is beyond friendly and warm and I knew I would be in good hands. She really took her time with me, showing me additional photos, thoroughly explaining the procedure to me. Aside from me really liking her work, I was happy with the fact that she only performs one surgery a day so she can take her time. I had met with another surgeon who would have slotted me as his 4th surgery for the day. Her surgical team is amazing, I didn't have one complication. She came to visit me at the aftercare facility and makes herself available to her patients by cellphone. Addy, her office manager, is so friendly and helpful. I am still healing but am already so happy with the results! Everyone I know tells me how amazing I look and that the work looks so natural. I literally cannot say enough good things about Dr. Trott. She is THE BEST!!!"- S.S. / Yelp / Jan 05, 2018
"Dr. Trott is incredible! She came highly recommended from my OBGYN. If you have any questions about a procedure, book a consultation, she and her team will go over EVERYTHING and answer every single question you have (and I had a lot). I felt very confident about my surgery, what to expect before and after, and what the recovery would be like. I am so happy with my results and have never..."- L. / RealSelf / Feb 12, 2019
"I recently had a "mommy makeover" with Dr. Trott. I've always worked out hard and eaten healthy food, but as a mom of two boys, working full time, I was not happy with how my body looked. Dr. Trott performed a breast reduction with a lift as well as some liposuction around my abdominal area and back. Dr. Trott had been recommended to me by a friend who also happens to be a surgical nurse, and I trusted her recommendation and I'm so glad I did. This procedure literally changed my whole attitude and increased my confidence tremendously. I used to hide my breasts with baggy shirts and minimizer bras. I had neck and shoulder pain constantly. Those issues have completely disappeared. My husband always said he loved me and looked great all the time, but now, he says I look like I did before I had our children and he's thrilled. The only thing I'm disappointed with is that it took me so long to make this decision."- S. / Healthgrades / Jul 19, 2020

Ideal Candidates For a Chin Implant
Chin augmentation is an aesthetic option for both women and men. If you are self-conscious because of the size of your chin and do not like the weak profile it creates, this cosmetic enhancement can improve the lower section of your face and neck. It's also fairly common for our patients to get a rhinoplasty with their chin augmentation treatment. This combined approach offers great reassurance for the features of your face to balance out.
Surgical Technique For Chin augmentation
During chin enhancement surgery, general anesthesia will be administered, or another form of anesthesia, such as IV sedation in some cases. The incision is made under your chin. In this incision, a surgical pocket is created to keep the implant device in its proper place, which involves reducing some of the tissue, cartilage, and bone to make grooves to hold your implant in position. The implant is placed through the incision and positioned over the bone, below your lower lip. In some cases, the incision can be created inside the lower lip where it connects to your gumline. Both types of incisions help to conceal scars. Small sutures are used to safely close the incisions, and the bottom portion of your face will be wrapped with medical garments.
What to Expect
Chin enhancement treatment produces immediate results, which can be very delightful for our patients. Although facial swelling and discoloration will be present following your surgery, this will subside. In most cases, chin augmentation roughly takes two weeks of recovery. Strenuous activity should not be performed within this time period. This particular surgery has extremely high success rates and under the hands of a trained surgeon, like Dr. Trott, your outcome will be natural and proportionate.
